ADDICTION (No names required)
Watching someone you love in the throes of an addiction can be devastating. It doesn’t just affect that person, it affects everyone. It affects how we come together as family, it affects our co-workers and it affects our children. We are all on this painful journey with them. But we are not by standers. The Bible says in Philippians 4:6, “Don’t’worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”
If you are feeling pain and anguish because someone you love is struggling with an addiction, whether it is alcohol, drugs, pornography or something else, you don’t have to stand by and watch your loved one suffer. Your are not powerless in this situation, because God wants you to come to him with the struggles that cause you pain. Here are three Bible verses you can pray for all those battling an addiction.
Pray for the brokenness and emptiness.
Psalm 147:3 (KJV) “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wonds.”
Pray for freedom and deliverance.
John 8:36 (KJV) “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
Pray for restoration.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV) “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
LOST SOULS, PEOPLE WHO DO NOT KNOW JESUS
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life”
Matthew 25: 31-46 (please read)

If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

PRAISE GOD EVERYDAY: In all the moments of life, we should be quick to praise the Lord and to bless Him at all times. When we have a good day, thank God for it. When the day turns dark and troubling, praise the Lord anyway, for His lovingkindness is fresh every morning and His faithfulness every night. Let’s bless Him every moment today.
That’s why James 1:2 tells us, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials.”

Please pray for my family. We have had many deaths this past year. Along with me having a bad fall that has left me pain and issues limiting my ability to work full time. Bro. Leo was our pastor at Jedburg Baptist as well as our neighbor. I was awoken the other night with him on my mind. So I found this site and listen to a few of his sermons. I was able to go back to sleep peacefully that night. I pray you continue to post them.
Tom, We will be praying for your continued healing and for your family during this season of grief and adjusting. May God comfort you and give you a peace that passes understanding. Remember that He will never leave or forsake you.
