Overcoming addiction through Christ: I’m not an expert in this field, but I consulted a dear sister in Christ, Michelle Savage, who has overcome her addiction through faith in the name of Jesus Christ and is now a counselor in a program that helps addicts break free from their chains. In the video, I talk about addiction as a form of idolatry that stands between the addict and God and damages our relationships with others. God provides a way of escape through Jesus Christ, but sometimes family members and self stand in the way. Michelle shared a few Scriptures that help her fight her battles and I close with some hopeful statements for anyone caught in the throes of addiction.

Christian hope differs from hope as we use it in everyday language. The type of hope we normally speak of is wishful thinking or fantasy. Christian hope is distinct insofar as it is confident a better future awaits. Christian hope transforms our lives as we set our sights on this better future, live our lives so that we may obtain it, recognize that our lives all unfold in different ways, and realize the path forward will have obstacles. God is faithful, and so we believe Christian hope is not in vain.
