Romans 8:2 (AMP) “..the law of the Spirit of Life which is in Christ Jesus, the law of my new being, has freed me from the law of sin and death.”
Life of an addict: 2 hurt is my purpose I’m blinded by pleasure, I’m constantly searchin…. The flick of a Bic lighter gives a flash of satisfaction but when I don’t have one I use matches; same cycle round and round we go; let’s go again I aint learned yet I don’t care I feel worthless; I’m adddicted at it again this siccness gots me wishing I never existed; I’m a patient I’m a physician patiently waitin 4 my prescription; another blast from this rig, pipe, drank, line, pill, or syringe; it’s all the same thang…..LIFE OF AN ADDICT
DOING THIS IS BENEFICIAL, EFFECTIVE, AND THERAPEUTIC 4 ME!
There are many times where the lowest points in your life are actually launching pads to God’s greatest promotion in your life. It was so for Joseph in the Bible!
If Joseph had not been betrayed by his brothers, he would not have been sold as a slave. If he had not been sold as a slave, he would not have been in Potiphar’s house. If he was not in Potiphar’s house, he would not have been thrown into an Egyptian prison meant specifically for the king’s prisoners. If he was not in that specific prison, he would not have interpreted the dreams of Pharaoh’s officers. If he had not interpreted their dreams, he would not have been summoned to interpret Pharaoh’s dream two years later. If he had not interpreted Pharaoh’s dream, Pharaoh would not have promoted Joseph to become his prime minister over the entire Egyptian empire!
God’s presence with Joseph and His unmerited favor caused Joseph to be promoted from the pit to the palace, from the dunghill to Capitol Hill, from the outhouse to the White House. So stop looking at your circumstances and stop allowing them to discourage you. The same Lord who was with Joseph is with you right now. You cannot fail! You can expect to see success beyond your present circumstances because of His unearned favor!
At the moment I’m in the dark with my arms stretched out reachin for somethin to touch feelin around; searchin for a glimpse of light a hint of life; any notice of motion; my eyes adjusting in the dark slowly exposin the shadows that aim to take my peace and distort my reality like a dream…..
