Left behind-Bondage-A real friend

A Real friend, Being Left Behind In Life.
Outreach Community Counsel By Michelle Stokes.

Being left behind in life, as long as you are in bondage to any type of drug, any type of fornication, any type of anything that God says is a sin, it is leaving you behind. Think of all the money spent. cigarettes, blunts, papers. Tobacco. worst then that when we speak crack, meth, pills, cocaine how much money alone are you loosing? not to mind you we won’t even speak about your life, or your soul.

A friend to me is someone who loves me, and says girl, you know your butt looks big, maybe we should go to the gym or go work out. I know you got that right! High five! We high five each other, and we take off. She and I we have fun, we work out together. Hey girl we don’t need to be getting drunk like that out in public, why? Because girl men take advantage of ladies, and we are not tramps! We love our self. We are just going to have one or two and go home. Why?, He looks fine? Girl ewl! You been drinking to much you need to come back in the morning, I bet you don’t say the same thing. Man girl, thank you, so much!! You saved my life!! I am so glad you didn’t let me sleep with that guy! No problem girl! I hope you got my back like that too! I love you! Yeah me too! I love you girl. We have to look out for each other, we are all we have. I have always been the good voice in the crowd, Even when I sinned, I spoke right and wrong. I am the one who promoted the lesser evil, in this conversation. We need to go home. I am that type of friend, it is who I am, and have been for so long. Only I don’t hang out at the clubs anymore. Neither do I promote fornication, but that indeed, is another subject.

So many years, I did this for many of my friends. I was the sober one. Now don’t get me wrong, I loved and love weed and until this day, I still love weed, but honestly it smells nasty, that loud smell gives me a headache. Weed isn’t even the same anymore. Besides I know better. I know I shouldn’t be smoking, I quit. I stopped, I quit, I picked it back up, Why because I wanted to, no other reason. I have lots of excuses though!, but nobody should hear them. I will not speak them. I did them because I wanted to plain and simple. I do not smoke weed or do any drugs, again this is old (former) thoughts.

This is just truth I liked it. Some people have a lot worst drug problems then me, I use to say, although I have tried other drugs also. Trust me when I say, I know that does not make me any better then you. Because regardless of the drug, I am an addict, I would tell you guys. You laughed at me. Girl you’re ok, it’s ok to drink as long as you don’t drink to much. You can get high, don’t worry about it . You guys sorry, it is a lie. and I been saying it for many years. You can’t do these things. I see the fullness of it all now.

Being left behind in life, as long as you are in bondage to any type of drug, any type of fornication, any type of anything that God says is a sin, it is leaving you behind. Think of all the money spent. cigarettes, blunts, papers. Tobacco. worst then that when we speak crack, meth, pills, cocaine how much money alone are you loosing? not to mind you we won’t even speak about your life, or your soul.

So how much money did you loose last night in the bars? How many dollars went to a stripper? Are you going to keep putting money in the slot machines? are these things Godly? Man, a good sign is, if it isn’t helping you go forward, or is it holding you backwards. if it is not helping you advance in life. It is a hindrance. It is a stumbling block, and it must be gotten rid of. I know we don’t want to hear these messages. Whether you believe in God the truth is, addictions keep you down and held back, so do all things sin, and this is what I speak on. I offer counsel to go forward.

Romans 6:23 is a very powerful scripture to go read. The price of sin is death and Jesus Christ came in LIFE. Things of this world can keep us in bondage. Bondage is also another way to word, “being left behind.” When we consider the money spent on such things. You can see why a lot of things in this world are called sin, not to mention even our souls, and our lives also. These are just a few of the things we will discuss in Outreach Community Counsel.

I am reaching out to the community, just as I did and do for my friends. I am offering biblical counsel. Bible reading, studies and prayer to any individual who is truly tired of struggling against the daily battles of life on their own. I wish I could say, I was a perfect person in the past, but the truth is that is not how it happened. What I am is a Woman who loves God and through God I was and am able to overcome all things. One of my goals is aiming for perfection and I am looking for people with like mind goals, that we can achieve together. Life is a good goal to achieve. Lets achieve it together!

I reach out to the community praying that anyone, like the former me, is out there and needs help and you do not know how to move forward. It is easy to fall backwards. Even harder to come out of it, but with God all things are possible. Through Christ we can do all things. The Word strengthens and heals. It is also easier to move forward, If you have someone who can relate to your struggles.

It is a cold lonely world trying to overcome things on your own. I have learned the best way to overcome is through God. Many are not aware of how to even achieve such things. This is where I come in. Let someone who has walked down that road before help you walk down a different road. because the path of bondage is painful, it hurts, and with no comforter it can be a sad thing this is for certain. Let us work together to walk down the Narrow path. The path of life. I pray many out there who are fighting this battle realize you are not alone, and if you are looking for a help meet, to help you. Let Outreach Community Counsel be the friend that leads you to a better path. I pray these words be a blessing to many and that this testimony fall in the right hands of someone like the former me and that the things we say and do help you in this life time, in Jesus name Amen!
