Addiction

December 5, 2017

Dear chains,

 

I woke up and you were there.  Were you there before, because I don’t remember inviting you into my home?  It seems like I cannot move now without making sure that you are right here with me.  How did that happen?  How did I suddenly allow you to control what I do? 

 

It wasn’t suddenly at all, was it?  I left a crack in the door, and you got a foothold.  While I wasn’t paying attention, you slowly began to take over…now I don’t know how to live without you.  Inch by inch you conquered me, and now I am living in your prison.

I cannot see a way to escape.  I cannot see past satisfying the next craving.  Hooked is such a fitting word, because the struggle to break free only pierces me with searing pain.  Do they not get it that I have to obey you?  They act like I have a choice, but any choice but surrendering to you leaves me hurting. 

 

I guess this is who I am now.  I guess this prison is my life. 

 

Hopelessly,

Bound

………..

 

Dear Bound,

 

There is a way.  It will not be painless, and it will not be easy.  But it will be worth it.  Not only do I have the key that unlocks every chain, but I have the power to destroy every yoke.  There is a truth that sets you free from the lies of your captor.  Do you want it?  Will you let Me help you?  Do you want to be free?

 

Waiting,

Jesus…Deliverer
