It is just standing there, like a coiled rattler ready to kill.You can’t go back to your old haunts.Stay or go. An addict is powerless in the face of booze and drugs. Strength comes from somewhere else. It comes from the power of the Holy Spirit.
Needing forgiveness, because there were a lot of sins in your past. Needing peace, because you’ve been at war all your life. Needing love, because you hate everybody. Needing strength, because you know how weak you are. Needing happiness, because you’ve been miserable for long.
:-You didn’t want to go to that bar today, but you did. Because you’ve never said no.
Confess to God that you were a sinner, and that you want salvation through Jesus Christ. Your life would change in an instant, a change so overwhelming you’d never believe. The Holy Spirit entering your soul, and the old you dead. A new one would be born, one whose past would be forgiven with your eternity secured.
