i have an addict's brain. there is a desperation in me. an emptiness. it feels like it will swallow me up alive.
there are times when i feel so desperate for some kind of comfort. any kind of comfort. i feel so bad, that i would do almost anything to feel better. even a little bit better for just a little while.
i have to have some relief. have to have. i'm so glad i've found it: jesus.
what i really need is love. i need love to feel secure and happy. i've found love. not a human relationship that i could lose through death or divorce, but loving and being loved by someone i can not lose. i've found the source of eternal love: jesus.
what i really need is joy. i need joy to give me strength to bear the difficulties of life. i've found joy. not happiness that may come and go with the ebb and flow of life, but joy like an bubbling fountain in my soul. i've found the source of the fountain of joy: jesus.
what i really need is peace. i need peace to rest my heart and mind. i've found peace. not the peace that only stays when everything is calm in my life, but peace that will never leave me nor forsake me. i've found the peace of god: jesus.
so, when there is a desperation in me. an emptiness. it feels like it will swallow me up alive. and, when i feel desperate for some kind of comfort. any kind of comfort. when i feel so bad, that i would do almost anything to feel better. even a little bit better for just a little while...
i remember that jesus told me that his father was going to send his holy spirit, and that the holy spirit was going to be my comforter, and that the fruit of that spirit would be love, joy, and peace. not a bottle, not a pill, not a needle, not a human relationship. jesus!
i have an addict's brain. i have the same life-destroying human weakness that so many people have. i still have the need. i have the son of god. i have the life-giving supernatural strength that only comes from god. the difference between me, and any other addict is: i've found something to fill up the hole in my soul. jesus! as long as i have jesus, i have what i need: love, joy, and peace!
