Great Is Thy Faithfulness
Leave Before He Kills You by Juliette Duncan is a powerful Christian story surrounding alcohol and drug dependency and the faithfulness of God. Based on truth, this is a story that will rock the reader’s heart. It is a gritty read with lessons for us all.
Alcohol and drug dependency destroys lives – no one is immune. The family and friends of the addict will all be affected. Promises of change are no good unless backed up by action. The addict must want to change more than they want the next drink or fix.
We all have a God-shaped hole in our lives. “God filled a void I didn’t even know I had.” It is only when we find God that we realise what was missing. Knowing God fulfils us.
Life deals us blows. We may get angry at God for His seeming inactivity or silence. The truth is that God is always working on our behalf. He never leaves us alone. We can trust Him when all else looks bleak. “I needed to trust God to lead and guide me.”
Community is important. In the novel the Christian community rallies round offering support – emotional and practical – when needed.
A powerful read from Juliette Duncan. Please if this story resonates with you, seek help and support. Do not suffer alone.
