I did not think of God at all until I saw my granddaddy

Location: Atlanta GA USA

By: lindsey stewart

I was brought up in a crazy environment, throughout childhood I was not told of the importance of God. I was raised with the belief anger was my best friend. So I became a drug and alcohol fiend at the age of thirteen. I did not see anything wrong with this picture. So i continued on my path of destruction. I know now that angels are the real reason I gave God a chance, I still have little faith, but I know angels are more than real. I want you all to know I am struggling but I have since eighteen, now twenty three, found a belief in something greater than myself. The reason I believe is only because of beautiful angels I cannot see but in hindsight I see God and his crew love me sooooooooooo much. I have been through so much with my addictions and if it were not for all the angels in the world, one imparticular, my granddaddy from Bristol, TN I would not be alive today. I know my granddaddy is my guardian angel because he died when I was eightteen in July 2001 and I got my first DUI on his actual birthday which was in September 2001. Weird ha anyway I believe ever since then he has been on the look out for me because I have been in multiple carwrecks and troubles with the law since but as well eagerly seeking God. Still in the grips of my addictions, I thank my granddaddy for loving me so much that his job is to now look over me and I love him for that. I will continue my search and try to let as many people know God is cool and only wants us to live to the fullest. I am afraid but when I believe I am certain my angels have my back. I am not invincible but I realize they will not give up hope on me unless I do. All I can do is pray and thank my angels for bringing me closer to God than I have ever been. I give you utmost thanks Granddaddy Hanes Allen Stewart you are more than amazing. Please God keep us safe Thank you for my life Ilove you
