My husband abandoned me

And I took a very long journey
I had children to take care of
But, my strength alone was not enough
Soon, I became a drug addict
With power to explode
For what I sought to self inflict
Took me down a hard road
I never looked in the mirror
For I had become something ugly
Then, one day I knelt in terror
Praying to end my life of drugging
 God led me down a path of peace
Found in a simple scripture
The words: “Seek and you shall find” did please
And for more I did venture
For in truth I wanted more
To no longer be confused
I sought to repent to the Lord
And my family I had abused
Twenty-seven years is a long time
To try to “do this life” alone
But through the Book of Mormon I find
The way to Christ that it makes known
Today I can look in the mirror
And feel God’s love, superior
“Today I want everyone to see
What the Lord has done with me!”

I surrender, Heavenly Father
I have wanted all the wrong things
I can’t take one step farther
Without what repentance brings

Pride- what is that?
I have lost control
Imprisoned- is where I’m at
I am trapped in a hole

I have fallen prey
To the drug of pleasure
I have lost my way
And given up life’s treasure

I want to feel peace,
Joy, and happiness
To have insanity cease
And through Thy Son be blessed

I want to feel wrapped in love
As a submissive child
I want to rise above
Being base and wild

That is why this day
I have turned to Thee
To repent, cry, and pray
And discover the free me

Elder M. Russell Ballard
Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
Ensign, November 2010,

There is hope for the addicted, and this hope comes through the Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ.
