Addiction does not discriminate nor define you. The chains can be broken and you can be set free. You do not have to see the whole staircase, you just have to take the first step. Matthew 11:28 “Come to ME, all you are weary and burdened and I will give you rest” Jesus aches for our pain and is ready to heal if we let him into our hearts.
