The closest I’ve ever been to a black bear cub and mother and they were, more afraid of us, than we were of them. Go in this time of the year and keep focused on the most important thing and that’s keeping your relationship and heart right with the Father. Tomorrow is never promised for anyone, one thing I’ve learned in life is to do my best to always stay humble. I’ve also learned to stay focused on several goals, instead of idols if I become too addicted I have to quit and make the Father more important once again. I fight addictions just like most but until we learn to fight them all, this includes any addiction not just drugs. People can be addicted to anything they put more energy into instead of the Father. I’m not here to point fingers cause I still fight against eating and overeating certain foods with chemicals, and if you don’t believe that’s some kind of drugs that are added to make us more addicted or sick or both. I think that we all struggle with this because it involves the cross we all carry that is our flesh.
The flesh is involved when someone is addicted to something, and they feel emotional when the thing is taken away. Pray for your family to overcome these addictions, and I will pray for you, will you pray for me? I’ve felt this way about sugar before, just as much, if not more than for a cigarette, it was because I used sugar as a crutch instead of Christ all the way through. I did fast the second two days of quitting but gave in to sugar. I can proudly say that was months ago so I’ve been cigarette free since the end of august. The Lord helped majorly, but often time like me we lean on other habits that can cause damage to our health, spiritually, physically, and mentally. Keep fighting, the devil will come at you with small addictions, to try and drag you back down, the same road. You can do this, and so can I. I plead the blood of Jesus over everyone reading these words.
