EMPOWERING Quotes

Thursday, May 12, 2011

The ways we find to numb our aches, our longings, and our pain are not benign.
They are malignant. They entangle themselves in our souls like a cancer,
and once attached, become addictions that are both cruel and relentless.

Though we seek them out for a little relief from the sorrows of life,
addictions turn on us and imprison us in chains that separate us
from the heart of God and others as well.

It is a lonely prison of our own making,
each chain forged in the fire of our indulgent choice.

~ John & Stasi Eldredge
