Putting God First

Before Steve actually made the decision to go to Afghanistan to work I remember praying for the Lord to open the right doors for us and lead us through them. I was getting so frustrated because I felt I wasn’t getting the answers from God that I wanted and needed. I knew the reason I wasn’t getting the answers was because of me certainly not because God was simply withholding them from me. I prayed for God to show me what I was doing wrong and He revealed to me that He was not first in my life, Steve was. I told God I was willing to put Him first in my life but I would need His help. Shortly after this Steve left for Afghanistan.

About Alecia Roberts

First and foremost, I am a Christian. I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. I wrote The Pursuit of Purpose: A Journey to Forgiveness and Healing while my husband was working overseas as a civilian contractor. The Pursuit of Purpose: A Journey to Forgiveness and Healing is my testimony of God's amazing love, grace and power in a surrendered life and heart. It was released on May 29, 2012. I lost my middle daughter, Heather who suffered from mental illness and addiction to an overdose in October of 2015. Since then I've dedicated my life to confronting addiction and promoting changes in North Carolina that will hopefully save lives.
