As I mentioned before, I have been a church goer my entire life and have practiced Christianity in many different forms, so I would be appalled if my little blog were to lead someone towards religiosity. I believe that this bondage is perhaps the worst of all because it masquerades as a form of righteousness, but it is an impostor.
Richard Foster opened by eyes to the spiritual disciplines and helped me to begin my journey towards freedom. I recommend his book, “Celebration of Discipline” for any addict that wants to learn how to pray. Come as you are, and begin this journey to healing. You will feel like a hypocrite at first as you vacillate between your times of prayer and meditation while still giving in to your addiction on the side. But we have already established that we are helpless and God knows the kind of creatures that we are. Remember, he was there when this thing started. He can calculate the exact moment of this debilitating habit’s conception, when we were very small and innocent. How far we have walked away from God and from his goodness! Let him guide you back.
