JESUS DID IT! Ask Angela Hayward

By on August 3, 2015
My name is Angela, I would love to share my story and many obstacles the Lord has healed, delivered and restored unto me. I had been a 24 hour a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year addict for 20 years. I started using crack cocaine at the age of 18. I was 4 months pregnant with my first of now 4 children. My addiction was very debilitating and aggressive all at once. I began prostituting, selling my food stamps and whatever I could get my hands on. I lived to use and I used to live.  After the birth of my first child, my family was very concerned that my son would be deformed and just simply screwed up because of my addiction. This was a scary situation.  My mom dropped me off at the emergency room and told me to call her when I had my child.  I was all alone.  My child’s father was no where in the picture then nor now.  My addiction continued to progress through the next two pregnancies, same thing nothing different at all.  I used drugs the whole entire pregnancy.  God’s grace was working even when I wasn’t thinking about him or even had the slightest bit of interest in knowing him.  I can remember long before my addiction as a child,  my mother made sure we attended church every Wednesday and Sunday faithfully.  I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior at the age of 14.  I always knew about Jesus but I never knew him personally.  I became pregnant with my 4th child. He was born February 3, 2009 . One month later my whole life changed. God came into my situation and changed my life.  The process began. I entered a women’s only rehabilitation center for a 28 day program.  6 years later, I’m still standing. There’s so much more I can tell you.  But through it all God has blessed me and I still have a praise inside of me.  I Share this story with everyone, and I let them know that no matter what they are going through, God’s got it all in control. Just trust him. He will bring you out.
