Dear St. Jude, I am a daughter of God. He has walked with me through this journey of sobriety after being on drugs for over 20 years. I surrender myself every morning. I have changed my life in the past 7 months. I am looking at some prison time for the kind of life I was living while on drugs. I have prayed for forgivness for everything I did while I was not being a daughter of God. I am so remorseful. If I serve time, my children will be sent to live with their father, who is a great father, but has been very unstable the past few years, my mother is unable to care for my kids except only on the weekends. And just the thought of being away from my children breaks my heart. I am trying so hard in my recovery. I just that my kids and I will have the strength to make it through whatever is in your will for us. I understand that God is the ultimate judge, but please allow this judge here on earth to give me mercy on my sentencing. I will follow my king of kings for eternity no matter what the outcome is.
