Form your purpose by asking for counsel, then carry it out using all the help you can get. A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. I know, God, that mere mortals can’t run their own lives, That men and women don’t have what it takes to take charge of life. So correct us, God, as you see best. Don’t lose your temper. That would be the end of us.
Jesus has already won the war over our addictions by His sacrifice on the cross but the battle rages. When you know what you don’t know don’t be afraid to ask for advice.
