Most people have some kind of an addiction. Webster says an ADDICTION is the habit of activity, often injurious. Sometimes we call it a craving, fixation, a hang-up, obsession, or even a sweet tooth. However, it is dependence or enslavement to something that is difficult to break the chains of bondage. My personal obsession or addiction is my sweet tooth. I cannot go one day without chocolate in some form, cookie, cake, ice cream, candy, or pudding. This is not a healthy lifestyle for me personally. Is it a sin? No, but I want to lose weight and it’s hard to do with the choices I make. Diabetes runs in my family and I don’t want to suffer from this illness. I allow chocolate to control my emotions which confirms no self-control. The most important thing that I tend to forget is my body is the temple of God. My desire is to keep God’s temple as healthy as I can by making good choices and demonstrating self-control. Thank you, Lord, for helping me battle my addiction. I pray that whatever your addiction may be that you will surrender it to God. With God all things are possible. 🙏
God Is A Chain Breaker!
