addiction-an uphill battle…

wondering if you know…

battling with self injury or any type of addiction is…

an uphill battle

in the dark

w/rough terrain

stumbling, falling

getting back up

requires incredible determination

a little encouragement daily

God is capable and willing to deliver us…HE is also…at times…interested in seeing us fight the thing out, and believe that it will be worth it when we reach the top…if you know somesome struggling with this, and you know they are a new believer…

Showing them their failures and scripture to back that up is not helping…encourage them to keep trying, admit that the climb is tough, remind them that God has not given up on them, and HE is not sick of them and their falling…HE loves them, and is teaching them more of who HE is and who they are to HIM…

Look what HE taught Joshua and the Isrealites in Joshua 9-10….amazing they found their selves in a place, due to someone elses sin…and stumbling and mumbling they did…and the Glory of God they saw!

Be Real-Hold out Hope

A dear friend tagged me with this on FB, and i am honored that altho she has never met me, she gets me.  i used to shoot drugs into my arms before knowing Jesus, watching the blood run down my arm made me feel alive in a twisted way, altho feeling so very dead….actually i was dead, but now i am alive in Christ.  i know many cutters, and i understand what they get from it.  Could we as the body, just stop and remember what we are all saved from….? Could we love and accept them as the beautiful creations that they are, and write love on their arms….and then wrap them in it, show some patience….God will do the changing, and we do the loving….hold out Hope…Thank you Jesus for holding out hope to me.
