Jesus Saves Meth-Heads!

“Some became fools through their rebellious ways and suffered affliction because of their iniquities. They loathed all food and drew near the gates of death.

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He saved them from their distress. He sent out His word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave.

Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for mankind.”

‭‭~ Psalm‬ ‭107:17-21

My friend, are you a tweeker, a user, a meth-head, a crack-head, an alcoholic, a cutter, or hostage in one of many other addictions?

Perhaps you have reached the point where you hate your addiction, you hate yourself and your powerlessness to help yourself, you hate life in general because it has become a dark chamber for self-inflicted torture.

Your addiction, which might have started with someone “innocently” and “kindly” sharing a freebie with you, now controls you and drives you to do disgusting and dehumanizing things to buy your next fix.

My friend, I have no condemnation for you. I know that your captivity is bigger than human wisdom and human power can heal. I do, however, know a Guy. He can set you free, clean you up, heal your body, and rebuild your life.

His name is Jesus. He is one heartfelt cry away from leading you into a new, abundant life! Ask Him to intervene… He will! That is why He came into this world.

“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned… This is the verdict: Light has come into the world…”

‭‭~ John‬ ‭3:17-19‬

Healing for Cutters

People who cut themselves, and use other forms of self-harm, are in dire need of God’s healing.

Cutters don’t need disciplinarians, their pain is already 1,000 times greater than the pain of any possible disciplinary action.

Instead, being soul-wounded and lost deep inside a dark wilderness, they need brave and compassionate people who will venture deep into their dark world.

Upon finding where they are at, and with unconditional and persevering love, then lead them step by step into the realm of healing and light.

If you are a cutter, God is going to send someone to you. He desperately wants you to go from being wounded to being healed, and from being lost to being found, and from languishing in a dark realm to living life in the realm of His Light.

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up…
Do you not see it? I am making a way in the wilderness…”

~ Isaiah 43:18-19

And if God cares enough to know the name of every distant star, He certainly cares 1,000 times more about you… He knows your name! He knows your pain! He is going to rescue you and heal you!

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; His understanding has no limit.”

~ Psalm 147:3-5

Cutters, you are loved to the max by God and by those who love God. You may not feel their love yet, due to your high level of pain and the depth of your darkness, but be patient with God and people. Your healing may be just around the corner.

In my own way, I am very experienced in the realm of pain. I am also very experienced in God’s love and provision for healing. I know what darkness feels like too. But, I also know what God does when we invite Him to help us, welcoming His invasion of our life!

You will not be disappointed! 🙂
