The dilemma of those affected by drug abuse appears to be growing. There seems to be a need to escape the precious life you have been given. I know life is not always satisfying. I know life has many trials and tribulations whether or not you hold to a belief in Jesus. You were so convinced that if I made more money and had some fame, this would be life’s answer and it came, but you are still unhappy.
You look in the mirror wondering when is the pain and dissatisfying nagging going to end? When does the wealth and fame bring me the satisfaction I desire? The reality is, that it will not. Why? Because you are created being. Created beings are here on purpose and not by accident. Created beings provide a function for the one who created them. When the function for its creation is not manifested there is a schism. The schism results in the creature’s retaliation.
You in essence are fighting with yourself. You did not ask to be here and yet exist. You did not ask for the destination of having to be born and then having to die. You did not ask for many things that you are experiencing in this life. All you have to go on is your intellect and experience. Intellect and experience does not equal happiness. So why are drugs so attractive? They provide a patch. A door that leads to a destination that will ultimately be the fate of all, so why is drugs a problem?
The destination called death leads to another door called heaven or hell. The existence of the door called hell is the motivation of why I write. It is the central theme of my blog and the purpose for which I extend a helping hand or shout things like “I love you” and desire your happiness and ultimate satisfaction in heaven. Listen. Jesus is not the white guy you see with blonde hair and blue eyes on paintings. He is not the one you see in children’s books wrestling dinosaurs. He is not the one hanging on the cross around the necks of actresses, sports figures, porn stars, and musicians. He is not a bumper sticker on the back of a car driving reckless. He is not lightening or clouds in the sky. He is risen, alive and in heaven.
You need to speak with your creator. You need to ask him why you are here and when he answers, obey his instructions. He leads to green pastures and he offers peace that passes understanding. Call on the name of Jesus. He hears those who call. He is the only door that releases you from the schism.
