Psalm 119:71 (KJV) 71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.
|Recently I read, the Associated Press recently reported a story about a lawyer in Las Vegas who showed up in court late to defend his client.
The lawyer was slurring his words and couldn’t seem to tell a straight story. So, the judge ordered a breathalyzer, and he questioned the woman who accompanied the lawyer. The lawyer introduced the woman by one name but when questioned she gave the judge a different name. She also stated that she’d met the lawyer at a bar twenty minutes earlier.
What’s your reaction to this story? Disbelief? Disgust? Anger? The truth is that addiction does not respect class, ethnicity, or gender. We all know people who struggle with addiction: perhaps you, yourself, are struggling.
Truthfully there is a way out: however, it begins with you. Are you ready to make some decisions that will require change? Are you ready to feel worse before you feel better?
Point to ponder- Concerning addiction: You can do it; but do it with God’s help. Do it with connection with others. Do it with professional help if necessary. God loves you right where you are, but he wants better for you. I did it myself 30 years ago, so I know God can do it for you!
