I was a gambling addict. I had never liked gambling, never played card games, chess or Mah-jong. How did I become addicted? I was looking for someone in the casino one day, then I was sucked into gambling for over 10 years. (During that time) I was filled with guilt and regret. I knew it was not good; it impacted on family but I just couldn’t stop. My family tried every means to help me but in vain. I had severe depression but I refused to see the doctor. I was living in misery and even wanted to give up my life. I had hatred in my heart; I hated everybody around me and hated to return home. Once I locked myself in the casino for four days and three nights. I thought I could forget all the sorrows, but I couldn’t. I fell into total darkness. One day out of desperation, I called my sister-in-law, who is a Christian. She told me that only Jesus was my solution. Only God can lead me out. So she introduced me to Pastor Louis Luo. I remember it was my first time in church, but I felt so peaceful, like never before. I likened myself to a small boat in an ocean without direction. But CityLife Chinese Church has become a harbour, a safe refuge. I have found my life direction; out of winter into spring. The gambling addiction is now completely gone! I grow in a Life Group, serving happily in this family of God. I will continue to love the Lord for what he has done!
