I wrote this three weeks ago in the woods with a pen and paper. I had no intention of publishing it but today as I re-read the words, I realized it is still the cry of my heart.

Same ol’ story, same ol’ hurt, a heart full of disappointment, a heart that needs to be poured out so the Great Physician, My Shelter, can fill it back up.

So my pencil touches the page, the sun shines on my back, the wind blows through my hair and I write…

Addiction & drunkenness & sin & debauchery…kills. It is just not satisfied to hurt or maim, it is set to destroy a person, their family, their relationship. Slowly deteriorates, slowly toward death.

Satan uses this tool to entrap and hold captive the sout that stands the most to win souls to Christ. This addiction sucks life out of someone. Within this there is o room for The Lord, no room for Glory, only darkness reigns.


She slams away at the wedge.


Determined to slice it, a big round from a tree cut in the woods. Relentless she hits it until atlas she declares “I HAVE SLAYED THE WOOD”

This is the determination with which the addict must be determined to be free.


Audaciously determined to hit the wedge until the chains of addiction fall away. You can’t stop part way, thinking that it is close enough just to beat the wedge into the stump, you have to continue until you have slayed the beast.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have been given from God, and that you are not your own? 1 Cor 6:19
