What is seriously odd about an addict is that they are the only one around them that realizes/ admits they have an addiction. Everyone around them already knows and either is playing along or gives them hell about it or anything in between. For instance, porn addicts leave trails of debris in their histories or how many visits on the cloud or Internet. Also, PIED is a pretty obvious indicator. And who really plays games that much, yes you are not fooling anyone but you. We are actually intelligent- surprise! Everyone knows. This is just one example.
Addicts think they are so smart because they have made a career or lying about it and covering for so long. It is obvious to those of us who have recovered from delusions and are reading truth/thr Bible every day. Does that make us better? Uh, no. We are not delusional. Just makes us aware. I believe people should realize that they are making a choice. Everyone knows. There is no secret or fantasy world that is successful to hide in. Just know that it is a choice to continue in an addiction and help is available all over the place, first in truth and then a million other places nowadays. Getting help is a choice. Hope is there always, the starting point to freedom is admitting what everyone else close to you already knows. No one is fooled. Time to admit it and stop the lie cycle. Hope is everywhere. Just say what we all know and seek truth and help. Those you love want you to get help and be free from that bondage. We already forgave you or would be gone. Forgiveness is prevalent with us and with God, and forgiving yourself is next to freedom. How amazing freedom is. Hope is there. Hope is everywhere.❤
The beauty of this truth is about what encompasses addiction is that truth from God is the way out. There is hope. So, as the formula for addiction is
5. Habitual Choices to do wrong.
This means that the formula for destroying addiction is in everyone’s hands through God: Breaking addictions formula:
1. Humble contrition
2. Worshipping God
3. Obedient holiness (salvation from Jesus Christ)
4. Habitual Choices to do good.
God he Father is the power of love and Jesus Christ is the way to God the Father. Choose Him and be free. God is freedom!❤❤❤
So, ya don’t want any problems? Join the club. The goal in life is not to get through it without anything happening. Not only is that literally impossible but horribly boring and leads to spoiled, self- centered boring immature brats sitting about, wanting to be waited on.
We are alive to serve and worship God.
Trouble comes because God loves us enough to grow and mature us and show us His love for us by caring us through everything. We grow, we mayure, we develop into people who serve and worship God through trouble. Unfortunately there is sin in this world and we are stubborn with pride so learning has to happen through trouble.
The best thing we can do is not avoid trouble but be contrite and learn the lesson quickly and get quickly to serving and worshipping God. ❤
I had my first rapture dream. It was a bunch of us in a building and we were all called to another place and on the news scripture was being fulfilled right there and I called it out. Some believed and some did not. There was a vote to elect some horrible dark-haired person in disguise as a great man and I saw through it because of Scripture and called it out and some believed and some did not. I knew we were going then and told everyone I had a party to get to. Some believed and some did not. And then my alarm went off. Simple but I know it was about the rapture. And I am excited because no matter what happens before that day, there is a day coming we will have n no more of this filthy world and we will be with Jesus in paradise forever.❤
Most nights now, I sleep like a baby.
Tonight I am still awake at 2:30am with my thoughts and songs.
And I made peace with my past yet again.
And I realize that without the devastation, I would not know myself so well. I would not be so strong and realize it fully.
So much more importantly, without the horrible, I never would have known the enor ity of the love of God. I would never have known the vast depth of His comfort. I would have never fully comprehended that if all I ever had in this world was Jesus Christ, I would be perfectly complete.
So, having completed that very precious truth in my brain, I will now go to sleep. Peaceful and full of joy.
God is everything. All is well. No worries. Ever.♥
Trusting God requires contrition/humility that we cannot do it alone. It is the antithesis of pride and self-focus/independence. This is what makes it difficult for people. Rather than giving up control and pride, people will cling kicking and screaming to their problem- real or imagined- and carry it around with them everywhere, whining and worrying about it. It is like a stray dog they refuse to give up on that is eating them out of ouse and home but they refuse to give it up. It isn’t even theirs! And it hates them and bites them all the time. Still they work to keep it. No value at all? No matter, I can handle this.
This is worry. It is irrational. It is stupid. It is foolish and denotes a lack of contrition and trust in God. Trusting in God is to entrust everything to him. Give him the stray dog and let Him tame it or put it down as He deems fit. Be okay with God solving your problems- real or imagined. Give God the ok to work in your life for the best. Then relax and rest in His peace and joy. It is simple. Just do it.😄❤
So, I sang my song this morning (“Take Me Back” from a previous post) at church. Of course, I humbled my heart and prayed before singing. I have not gotten nervous on stage for, oh, 30 years or better except when perforning an original song. With my songs, I have always gotten nervous. I think it is a part of yourself you are sharing with everyone else, putting yourself out there for criticism that always came. And I have never had a supportive spouse that encouraged my songwriting or even bothered to read my songs or hear them. And my husband is very critical so I keep them to myself.
Anywho, today like I said, I prayed. And herein Prooves the Faithfulness of God for He took over. I said “Let’s do this” and we did. And for the first time ever doing my own songs, I was not nervous. I even spoke before and told them the Scripture reference it came from and what it was about.
Many people came up and encouraged me and told me the song God gave me inspired them and they loved it. I am so pleased! God is faithful even when we are not and loves b us so much! He longs to draw close to us and just love n on us. That is why He helps every time we need Him and humbly ask. He is so good!!!😄❤
