"UNDER THE INFLUENCE"

 

Out of fifty-one years on this earth, I was under the influence for twenty-three of those years, I will not lie to you, I was in love with intoxication. In the beginning we went out a few times, you know, a period of feeling each other out so to speak. I was fourteen at the time, a bit young for any relationship so we kept our secret liaisons to ourselves. As time progressed I began to mature and our relationship was beginning to evolve, we were becoming. Intoxication was my first and I shall never forget her, our intimacy was so intoxicating that I wanted nothing more than to be with her, nothing! For the first two or three years our relationship was awesome, we started seeing each other on a daily basis, and it was not long before we moved in together. Living with intoxication can be overwhelming at times, it can be tiresome, it can be mentally and physically draining, it not only can, but it will! As the years progressed we were on and off, she would move out, or should I say, I threw her out! I threw her out many times, but I always begged her to come back home, and her reply was always the same, "If you want me back, then come and get me!" And I always did. The world can be exciting, intoxicating, stimulating, provocative, and alluring, but buyer beware. The intoxicating effects that are of this world will try to entice you, but do not be tempted by the short-lived state of euphoria, for the crash is not worth an eternity of? As I write you absorb, so I write with the Lord in me, so he can be in you. The intoxicating effects that the Lord and his scriptures give you will be like no other, there will be no need for you to reach for higher heights, for your climb will be over.

"Look up at the heavens and see; gaze at the clouds so high above you."

Job 35:5
