Seth’s Story | Adult & Teen Challenge

My name is Seth, I’m 27 and I am from Greensboro, North Carolina. I grew up in the church and my father was a pastor. My childhood was a relatively good one. I enjoyed church for the most part, but many times it seemed more as a chore than having a relationship with God and a place to share my life with other Christians.

Without this relationship with Christ, in my adolescent and teen years, I didn’t deal with the problems that arose in my life in a healthy, godly way and turned to things of the world to comfort me. This led to me losing friendships and not living to my full potential. By my mid-twenties, I was in a downward spiral of depression and despair, which ultimately ended in an overdose. I almost died. This was a wakeup call like the one the prodigal son had when he “came to his senses” in the pigpen. With the help of my family, I chose to come to Shenandoah Valley Adult & Teen Challenge. 

While in  Teen Challenge, with the help of fellow students and mentors, I have realized that in order for me to receive the blessings God has intended for me, I must have a faithful relationship with Christ and give my whole life to Him. In my life, the main thing that sticks out to me that I have never dealt well with is failure and adversity.

Romans 6:14 says, “Sin is no longer my master. I no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, I live under the freedom of God’s grace.” This helps me when I have failures, both in sin and those that are not. Christ now comforts me and shows me the way during these times. I no longer have to go to a bottle or a pill.

“For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.” Romans 6:14
