God and addiction

Where is God in relation to addiction?  He is there but you are not letting him in.

When I binge, I unconsciously try to remove myself from God.  Or else I’m ignoring him.  Whatever I am doing I am not focusing on him, aware of him,  reaching out to him, open to him.

I am closed to him.  I am trying to fill a hole that needs to be filled with him with something else.  The only thing that will satisfy is him.  So that hole becomes endless when I try to fill it with other things.

Addiction is turning away from the very thing that will truly satisfy.

God can prevent addiction if only you turn to him.
