"Addiction's a tough enemy to defeat. I think of it as a monster. If I feed it, it will always want more and more, so now I'm letting it starve to death in a corner. But it's always there." (a Hollywood actress after years of rehab; taken from a website in 2010)

Every day we can make the choice to either feed or starve the monster. There is hope!


Feed the Right Wolf.....    
"The wolf we feed will be the one to survive..... This applies to addiction, despair, discouragement, jealousy, hatred, and also to faith, courage, strength, hope, testimony......We choose!!"

"I agree. Satan's first step is to make us think we have no choice. Isn't interesting how the "war in heaven" with Satan was over agency....nothing really has changed!"

"Nothing is beyond [Christ’s] redeeming reach or His encircling empathy. Therefore, we should not complain about our own life’s not being a rose garden when we remember who wore the crown of thorns! Having bled at every pore, how red His raiment must have been in Gethsemane, how crimson that cloak! No wonder, when Christ comes in power and glory, that He will come in reminding red attire, signifying not only the winepress of wrath, but also to bring to our remembrance how He suffered for each of us in Gethsemane and on Calvary!"
