Dealing with Doubts

Inspired by: Life on purpose for men, by J.M. Farro
  
When the (evil) spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. Jesus asked the boy’s father, “ How long he has been  like this?” “From childhood “, he answered. “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.”
“If you can?’” Jesus said. “Everything is possible to those who believes.”
Immediately the boys father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
---Mark 9:20-24---

Challenge:
What have we been listening to lately? Are we listening to conversation of unbelief, worldly television, or negative music? Make sure that we also listen to the Word of God as much as possible. We should fill our empty time with His Word rather than the world’s choices. Let’s do this to increase our faith.

Prayer:
Lord, I want so much to have a perfect faith, but sometimes or rather most of the time I must confess that I struggle with doubt. During such times I want to ask You to help me overcome my unbelief. Increase my faith daily, and teach me to do my part so that I can cooperate with You for the perfecting of my faith. Thank you for giving me faith I need to receive all that You have for me! 



Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...!

Drug Rehab Treatment

Seriously, drug addiction is really a hard to treat. The whole family should be in one accord to face this thing when it happens to one their family member. Having one of the family in this situation is quite frustrating and disappointing, plus the negative emotional  effect it gives to the family.

My uncle, who's been a good person was a victim of drug addiction. He was then at his third year in university taking up aeronautics courses, but when he got the addiction, he dropped all his subjects and quit school, marries the drug lady whose been his drug supplier (sad to say that the lady has been into a lot of guys before my uncle, so she had a child then before my beloved uncle came). Now, uncle is working at an airport as a janitor instead of having  a higher position. It sad, right?!

I rather suggest that, when we know that someone we love is in bondage of this drug addiction thing-y, we should not tolerate them instead bring them to a treatment center nearest your place or bring them to a benzodiazepines detox addiction treatment so that they can have their life again, and not only that if others who knows him/her and in the same situation as him/her will be encourage to do the same because of the good thing that happens to him in spite of everything.

There is hope still!
