Addiction is a widespread issue in our society. We’re all prone to developing addictions, because we’re all tempted to seek fulfillment in someone or something else besides God. The list of what we can become addicted to is long: food, sex, gambling, alcohol, shopping, cigarettes, work, the Internet, etc.
I used to silently judge people who got drunk, smugly taking pride in the fact that I barely drank any alcohol at all. But then I realized that I had just as much of a problem with compulsively eating chocolate. None of us is immune to falling into addictive behavior. We all have to choose, day by day, to devote ourselves more to God than to anything or anyone else.
Angels, who are God’s messengers, are valuable allies to have in the fight against addiction. That’s why I’m writing a series on angels and addiction for About.com, covering such addictions as pornography, food, and alcohol and other drugs. Hope you find the articles helpful! And if God or one of his angels have helped you recover from an addiction, please send me your miracle story or angel story to post on the site to inspire others.
Thanks, and Blessings,
