My name is Robby Strickland. I was born April 15th, 1971, asked Christ to come live in my heart and save me on February 18. 1984 at 1:30 p.m. Shortly after, the lust of the flesh and the way of the world caught my eye. Partying, drinking, and being high, consumed my very being. This is what life was all about...or so I though.
Before I knew it, I was sucked into a black hole of despair. I spent 26 years begging God to take this way of life from me.. Please God, give me peace, I'll do whatever you ask!
After years of torment, on April 23, 2010, in a moment of clarity, the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart. He informed me that at the cross, Jesus completed a work that set me free, not only from damnation, but set me free from having to live for myself. For so long i played God, thinking I knew what was best for me and those around me.
In an instant I knew if i was to be free from the addiction of alcoholism and drug addiction, then I had to die to myself and take the action that would bring about a renewing of my mind, body, and soul. So I listened to some Godly friends that pointed me in the right direction.
Today, I'm going on three years clean and sober by the good grace of God.
