That is a very hard life to bounce back from, what he must have went through, and what others in that industry are still going through. I’m happy for Justin that he found Jesus, and glad to hear that he has support around him. I hope he doesn’t feel any pressure to be on stage, and if he needs to have some down time, that would be perfectly ok to do so. I didn’t realise he was married, so he’s taking on a lot. God’s grace is more than enough for us. Whatever we face, and whoever we are, God is great at pulling us out of our own mess.
I do feel sorry for people in the entertainment industry that need support, but don’t find any. Could someone have been there for Justin? What about Britney Spears and when someone took advantage of her (I don’t know the full story, only what was on the television at the time). Robin Williams (that was sad!)?? The media seems to enjoy publicising the demise of celebrities, but the industry doesn’t seem to help or offer counsel to those who’ve been rejected, or who are being exploited or doing drugs, or whatever. As long as they ‘get the shot’, they are happy. Something wrong there!
I’m grateful though for those in the entertainment industry who do believe in Jesus and are not ashamed to say so, who are also able to support their colleagues when they need it.
I wish Justin well in his new life in Christ, and trust that he will be fulfilled and ever growing towards becoming a beacon for Jesus in his years to come.
