I am no longer that Slave to alcohol and drugs, they always smiled with me and then at me.



Craving the drink then craving drugs constantly yes I was BIG WILLY ALL THE WAY TO DETOX .I was doing my own will living in flesh. “I can take care of myself.” Started living on the instalment plan halfway houses Treatment centers detoxes theses 3 places took care OF ME for years. When I could not get in to none of them. I would go to the shelters I could always find one of them no matter where I WAS or WHAT CITY.

But now I am no longer in bondage of drugs and alcohol. God has smile on me he has set me free showing me what agape love is. My God is love and love is patient. I am aware of the old man now, no more bondage for me I am a new creation in Christ.

So what is different this time; I trust in the LORD with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding in all my ways I acknowledge Him and He will make my path straight. I think about Proverbs 3:5-6 sometimes when I sign out at the desk, wherever I am going. My God is love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered it keeps no record of wrongs. My God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. He always protects. I can always trust Him (1Cor 13) because my God lets me know that I am in this world but not of this world (John 17:14-16) and there is no temptation that has overtaken me, except such as is common to man but my God is faithful who will not allow me to be tempted beyond what am able, but with that temptation will also make a way of escape that I may be able to bear it (1 Cor 10:13 ). My God says “I know the plans I have for you, they are plans for good and not for evil,” to give me a future and hope in those days (Jer 29:11) when I pray He will listen He will find me when I seek him if I look for him earnestly. THY will, not mine be done AMEN!
