My name is Sara Mcmillan, I am working on overcoming some obstacles to achive total freedom in My life. As of today i am 2 year 8 months clean and sober!! Praise be to God!
Overcoming much loss and heartbreak during this journey the most recent is the loss of my first born son Nick on June 20, 2017 at the young age of 22 from a TRAGIC car accident All while this great loss going on staying CLEAN and SOBER. That is STRENGTH through Faith in Gods plans for my life.
During the journey of getting my life back, some of the top issues are finacial stress. I have now been at my current waitress job close to 2 years. This is my very first job i have held down this long in my adult life being clean and sober. Not without great challanges, i walk 2 miles to work and home every day in sun,rain,snow, ice, flash floods and tornadoes. I am so GRATEFUL for my job i show up no matter what. It has been a very humbling experience to say the least all happening without a license and car for over 3 years. I know my purpose is more than being a waitress at a greasy spoon so, I am now reaching out to ask for guidance, financial support and help in my next steps to reach my God given purpose. Which God has reveled through my sobriety.
I have been blessed to live in a step up home with a women who has helped guide me in budgeting and healing from survival living habits. I have recenlty started paying monthly rent for the 1st time on my own as an adult, as well as starting a bank account.
Recently the house i live in gave me notice that they are selling the home and i have to move out by end of April 2018. I have just gotten to a place to be able to work, save money and pay my bills, So this is a little scary.
I still do not have my license reinstated because of all the fines i accumliated during my active addiction. I can also not get a car untill i get my license and fines taken care of.
I Now have 3 months to come up with the money to pay off the rest of my fines which is close to $3000 AND come up with enough money to be able to move out and get my VERY OWN first house to rent and live in which will be close to $2000. With God i know this will happen because HE has opened so many doors during this process. I hope to also be able to creat a space in the new home so my 14 year old daughter can then possibly live with me, if the courts feel i am ready.
So starting this fundraiser while i am working diligently ,i am prayerfully asking for any help you would be willing give to reach my goals.
Since being clean and sober i have had many people reach out to ask HOW i did it, knowing how bad into addiction i was and where i am today. With my testimony i have been able to speak into several peoples lives and they have choosen to also get clean and follow Gods plan for there life. I KNOW GOD WANTS TO USE ME IN A BIG WAY! So i am asking for help to get me to my NEXT.
The scripture Mark 11;22-25 was recenlty highlighted to me trhough a friend and it spoke volumes to me. So please join with me in prayer to see GOD move mountains!
