10-18-17 TWELVE STEPPING WITH SUPPORT FROM SCRIPTURE

Psalm 39v11-My loved ones and friends stay away, fearing my disease.Even my own family stands at a distance. 


Step 2 -Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

Addiction has an intentional and deliberate plan to get you alone and then isolated. Once in isolation addiction sucks every ounce of love joy and hope out of you. Desperation moves in and we will do things we never thought we would do, that includes lying, stealing and hurting the only people in the world who care for us more than life itself. They distance themselves for self-preservation hiding under the disguise of enabling. We cannot hold it against them because that just adds to the insanity of our own lives. Never stop loving them and if at all possible leave them alone until you find God and find freedom! Scripture teaches us Love tears down all strongholds. Loved ones of those struggling, Love them unconditionally without feeding the addiction.They need you whether you realize that or not. Forget and forgive what they have done no matter how much it hurts. They are weak, broken and lost so you must be there Lighthouse in the storm. Jesus Christ loved and forgave the very people who beat Him and then murdered Him. Right now your loved one is trapped in a self-made prison that has doors that are unlocked they just can't find them. Be patient pray constantly never give up and never lose hope.Your day their day will come! 

Proverbs 17:17 -Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers all wrongs.

Thank you in advance for reading what Summer's dad has to say.
I've got my daughter back

My nightmare began when my beautiful daughter, my baby girl, started taking a drug prescribed by a doctor. I guess after some time the prescription wasn't strong enough to satisfy so she turned to other various drugs. My beautiful daughter was being taken hostage by this terrible demon.

As a father I tied to confront and to fix the issue but I probably made things worse. Soon my daughter hated me and wanted nothing to do with me. It was the worst feeling that I have ever had. It was the most helpless feeling that I have ever experienced. 

My pastor explained that it was a spiritual battle and she would have to hit rock bottom before she would get help. I prayed the hardest prayer, "God do whatever it takes."  I wanted my daughter and my grandchildren back.

Finally I got a call. It was 2:30 in the morning. I was expecting the call to be worse. I was relieved that she was calling from jail, not the hospital. My pastor had told me about Teen Challenge and helped Summer apply. She was quickly accepted.

In two weeks Summer was at Teen Challenge. What I have seen in her life is all my prayers answered and more! Never did I expect the transformation that we have experienced. I have my daughter back, the kids have their mother back and God is at the center of it all.

Since she graduated she's lived with us and is taking classes. This girl is on fire for God and wants to help so many. Thank you to all who support Teen Challenge, you've given me my family back.
