In his most recent documentary, singer Justin Bieber opens up his heart to tell how God helped him to get out of his drug addiction.
Through YouTube, Bieber launches a docuserie called “Justin Bieber: Seasons”. There, he revealed how he made a pact with God so he could stay sober from the drugs that were consuming him.
“I was dying”
In the documentary, you can see how he took a break to focus on his health, his wedding with Hailey Baldwin, and the production of his album after 4 years on pause. Right there, he confesses the pact he made with God in order to live.
“I decided to stop drugs because I felt like I was dying, my security were coming into the room at night to check my pulse. People don’t know how serious it got; it was legit crazy scary. I was waking up in the morning and the first thing I was doing is popping pills and smoking a blunt and starting my day. It just got scary,” Bieber revealed in the fifth episode of the series.
«I abused of what God gave me»
Then, he realized that he needed help, God’s help, and with obedience he decided to end his relationship with bad habits and return to the Lord’s path. Besides that, he also decided to receive medical treatment to detoxify his body.
“I basically said to myself ‘God if you’re real, you get me through this season of stopping these pills and stuff and if you do, I’ll do the rest of the work.’ I did that and then I was good from there but I never did the actual work,” he admitted. “I got off the pills but I never went to the root of everything. So then I just kind of circle back around, which most people do,” Bieber said.
“I’ve abused my body in the past and now I’m just in the recovery process trying to make sure I’m taking care of my body and taking care of the vessel that God’s given me,” He added.
Due to that traumatic experience, the singer decided to use his talent to “contribute” to a positive change with other people.
“There’s so many people that have gifts, and an opportunity to make a change, and they end up either losing it or using their gifts for selfish reasons,” he concluded.
