my friend has a drunk father who has made his life very very hard. I have shared christ with him, but i feel like maybe he needs to hear from someone who has been in his shoes and found christ. He has never met a christian who had a rough life and made it with christ. He just knows me who has had an easy life. does anyone know maybe any preachings done by someone preferably young who had a drunkard dad like preferably a video, but whatever is available will do? i need to find someone who can relate to my friend. He is 19. he is also dating a girl who he is giving his life to and she is so horrible for him. he needs help. any other advice? its so hard for me sometimes to share christ. I have to admit i havent been a great example 100% of the time, and i cant say i always talk about christ, but he knows ive changed alot, i know he can finally consider me a christian for this past year. it wasnt always so growing up. but i have also had a very easy life compared to him and i dont know how to show him that even a hard life can be fixed. the stories in the bible will seem like just stories in the bible. I just want him to be able to relate to someone in these years.

Many many years ago, when I had just truly begun to my walk with the Lord, a friend would nearly everyday tell me of her love of the Lord, and how good He is. She would constantly share with me her thoughts, and praise. Though back then, it didn't really seem to sink in, just didn't get it, for I had not yet been filled with the Holy Ghost, I just didn't get it.Several years went by, I haven't seen her a very long time. But she was surely, what I call, one of the links. I see it how you see a chain. A chain made up of links. Each person adds a link, until your chain is complete. This woman added many links to my chain, and though she doesn't know that, the Lord knows that, and I am sure that Lord has surely blessed her for that...
