hmm might be a good thread
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." (Psalm 19:1)

Yeah was also going to mention Dave Mustaine. Megadeth just happens to be my favourite band so that was extra cool for me, oh and the bass player Dave Ellefson is also a Christian now.
Mustaine became a Christian after a long period of doing drugs and alcohol. After trying everything possible he said it was his relationship with Christ that helped him get clean.
The amazing thing is that even after being an alcoholic, today he is able to have a social drink and not go overboard. This is no doubt testimony to the power of God and what He is able to do.
For those interested, you can read his story in his book titled Mustaine here: https://www.amazon.com/Mustaine-Heavy-M ... s=mustaine
My dad got drunk at weekends but ok during the week. Functioning alcoholic.
So I dont think its a 'God gets the glory' moment cos you can still drink moderately. Once the root cause is taken away, alcohol can be no longer a problem for some
Dave said he had tried everything else, and it was only once he had a relationship with God was he able to stop and then drink moderately. Many of his friends even said that he will never be able to have a social drink again, it's an all or nothing scenario. Well they were wrong.
I should of said I dont necessarily think its a 'God gets the glory' moment tho it could be.
