In this episode of Valor Life, Allan Brooks describes a life he lived before coming to know Jesus: a life of drugs and self. “It was all about me. All about me that whole time. I blamed my parents; I blamed everyone for everything.” Eventually, Allan came to see that the God he had been searching for had been present all along. “I was alone in my cell and I gave it up. I’d been searching for a God who wasn’t lost, and He’d been looking out for me. He took away my desire to smoke marijuana, my profanity, my desire for vengeance, and he brought my step-father back into my life, the one I had hated the most.” Allan knows he has forgiveness of his past mistakes through Jesus.
