Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation. Matthew 12:45
This brings me back to our addiction. As I struggle so hard to get back on track with my quit, I understand now why. What im understanding from this verse is once you're freed and delivered from something and go back, it becomes harder to find that freedom again because then the spirit (of addiction) in our case have found "friends" to throw his fits with him. I find myself smoking way more since I relapsed I see that as im feeding nico and his friends now! HOWEVER there's hope! We just have to make it up in our minds, hearts and total being that we will live for NOPE and keep them away from our face! Yes, it may seem harder to go forward and easier to give in (speaking for myself) but you can do it! Things may surface that didnt happen in the previous quits for example the withdrawal symptoms may be alot stronger headaches, depression, and overall feeling like crap. but that takes me back to this verse we have to fight harder because we are now dealing with more spirits rooting from our addiction. As I've said before THERE'S HOPE! Dont allow nico or any of his new found friends depression, sadness, gulit, pain, low self esteem and whatever else he decide to throw your way make you feel hopeless or weak in this YOU'RE NOT and that's his goal to keep you in bondage! You are worth more and deserve LIFE! The enemy come to steal, kill, and destroy! Steal our joy and freedom, kill our self worth and destroy our bodies! This takes me back to the love yourself group alot of us have a hard time seeing ourselves for what we're really worth and that group is very helpful! When you love someone you want to see them live right? I know I do! So its time we feel that way about ourselves. Love yourself and claim your life! I love each and every one of you and though this road is hard for me I find hope in your success that help me see that I can do it too! So no matter how hard it gets dont be like me continue to push forward there's always someone watching you, looking up to you, and finding hope in you dont let them or YOU for that matter down! I hope I encouraged someone this morning!
