To the still suffering addict.

My compulsive behavior have taken away all self-worth. Yet I wonder was this inherited from birth. Mother was a recovering alcoholic, my father I never knew. Found father figures as I grew. Learned the hard-way how to be strong. During those days it didn't matter, right or wrong. From my teen years until I was twenty one. Did drugs and alcohol in the army until my tour of duty was done. Was a fireman in the big city, lost my job after a few years. Realizing what I had done, brought on tears. Picked myself up got a job with the Veterans Affairs. My addiction,cunning and baffling did not care. Seven years clean and sober. Addiction standing waiting over my shoulder. Obsession is like a revolver, Jesus Christ knows how to solve her. He removed my addictive behavior. Left me The Holy Spirit, for my savior. When it's raining on the outside. I have sunshine on the inside. Have peace, love, and joy in the rain. Sunshine always follow the rain.

Do not let any body turn you around.
Do not let that old demon turn you around.
God is a forgiving God.
God is a loving God.
Each confession blesses the kingdom of God.
Love, Louisa

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL MY FRIEND AND DON'T WORRY ABOUT REVIEWS BECAUSE OUR REVIEWS OF GOOD WORK IS UP IN HEAVEN. THE POSITIVE AND THE GOOD GET SO LITTLE AS WE GIVE SO MUCH. GRACE AND PEACE FOR THIS WILL HELP AND EMCOURAGE MILLIONS.

Bless the Lord!
I love this one line: "He removed my addictive behavior." -- for it is Christ that truly sets us free, free from sin and free from all compulsive behaviors. Families of diseased systems are far more common than you may realize right now. Taking the risk to speak out about your history and your past as you seek to be stronger in the Lord is grace in Him.
I bless the Lord for your continued healing.
