“Everything is permissible for me”–but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”–but I will not be mastered by anything.” 1 Corinthians 6:12
I don’t want to be held captive anymore.
Help me to love you more than pleasure or the illusions of painlessness.
I no longer want to cower in fear that my addiction will overtake me. Instead, I want you to be my greatest love.
I no longer want immediate satisfaction that dissipates in no time at all, but I want something lasting.
Addiction, is an empty well and I have found it wanting more.
I turn away from these destructive idols I have built up, and ask that the surpassing riches of knowing you would satisfy.
Set me free, and then use me to bring freedom to others.
In your name,
