    Back in 2007 I went into a casino with $50, and won $3000. I took that into the high limit room and won $10,000. I had HAD that much money before in the bank when my dad died but I had never physically seen that much money before if that makes sense. It was like a curse. NOW I knew it was possible. That win was like an orgasm I had never had before- euphoric and special. Except it had claws in it somewhere. I started gambling everything I could get my hands on. The rent money, the bill money....I couldn't stop. My husband was about to leave me. I was lying, stealing, it had a hold on me but what the worst part was is mentally it consumed me. 24/7 I was thinking about how to make more money to go, night and day, it had hijacked my brain. After promising, and swearing never again, I snuck into his wallet and took the whole paycheck. Lost it. I was at rock bottom. This monster was huge and I couldn't fight it. I sat down and wrote a letter to Jesus, pouring out my soul. I fell asleep face down on the letter, when I woke up it was barely legible from the tears that had streaked all the writing. I had ink on my face, and I was broken. I got up the next day and while I was making dinner that night I kept thinking I was forgetting to do something. It dawned on me. I had gone an entire day without thinking about the casino once! It was gone! It was an absolute miracle and it was actually gone. I didn't go back to the casino for 3 years from that day forward and when I did go back it had lost its luster. Jesus took that from me and I know for a FACT I couldn't have done it without Him. It was just too big and I was too helpless to it. My husband was shocked and beared witness to the power of the Lord. He converted and got baptized soon after. Glory to the power of the blood of Jesus Christ! Hallelujah! Amen
