Getting Victory For An Addiction


I know of someone with a very powerful addiction.

It was eating him up like a “big time infection…”


His wife didn’t know what to do.  She was at her “wits end…”

No matter what she tried…  The troubles began…


At church… It didn’t seem to matter how much he cried...

Everything the pastor offered...  He already tried.


He couldn’t find an escape.  He felt trapped within...

How was he going to overcome this habitual sin?


He was raised as a Christian...  As a young man...

But the problems he was now facing,..

He couldn’t understand…


He met others at church with similar “obsessions…”

As he began to listen to their many confessions…


The power he was seeking to overcome this “thing.”

Was not enough.  He had tried just about “everything.”


He wondered and had thought this whole thing out.

Is this was being a God-fearing person is all about?


As this addiction seemed to be pulling him down…

He reached out for help.  And a friend was found.


He cried out to Jesus with a desperate plea….

“Lord Jesus…  Have mercy on a sinner like me.”


As the days went by, he confessed his every sin...

And felt the blood of Jesus cleanse him within.


The victory that he needs and desperately sought.

Is already his.  It has been blood bought…


Amen!  Hallelujah!  Victory in Jesus is his indeed...

For Jesus has supplied his every need!


This victory can be yours too! 

Won’t you give Jesus a chance!

He alone can change your every circumstance!


He has the power! By the blood of the lamb...

He’s reaching out to you! 

 Won’t you take his hand?

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
