Description

Alcoholism, drug abuse, pornography, gambling---these are obvious forms of addiction, but it doesn't stop there! Where do your weaknessses come from? How do you feed them? Why do you ignore them? When will God just remove them? If you are attempting to undersatand your own addiction or someone else's, then realize first that this is not a black and white issue. Everybody has a weakness and at the root of most (if not all) of these is selfishness. For those of us addicted to alcohol and/or drugs, forgetting our worst behaviors is way too convenient. It's called denial. For an addict, realizing the ugly truth that is our life can either be the first step toward recovery or the last leap into a dark depression. Choosing to fill our emptiness with anythinng besides a real relationship with God is our most common and damning decision. I've even been mad at God for not taking my addiction from me faster. Imagine that--- an impatient addict! Learning to trust, to lean on God's Love, receiving His Love through others and then returning that same love really is the true meaning of life. So simple, so perfect, so beautiful, so real...so why do we struggle so hard to understand it?Refuse to trade anymore of tomorrow's dreams for today's self-indulgence.
