Yesterday was an old friend of mines birthday. I believe he would have been 54.
He suffered from alcoholism and committed suicide about nine years ago. He looked successful on the outside. He had a high- influence job, lots of success and fairly handsome. Inside he was tormented with lies. We all have heard the lies of Satan, “ your not good enough, you can’t do it, so don’t try, no one like you anyway…. etc. I believe the only way to squash the lies is to fill ourselves with the word of GOD.
It is difficult to help our friends and family that suffer with alcoholism or other mental illnesses. We can always pray for them. God does hear and answer our prayers. We can remind them of the promises of God. We can also encourage them to get professional help.
If you catch yourself believing Satan’s lies…replace those thoughts immediately with the Truth of Gods word!!!
Proverbs 23:7 “As a man thinkith in his heart, so shall he be.”
John 3:16 “ God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
Be fit and be blessed,
