I’m hopelessly addicted! I’ve got to come out and tell everyone that. It started about 4 years ago and it’s getting worse and worse. I have talked to Pam about it and even my children. The problem is now I’ve contaminated them. They’re addicted too. We just can’t get enough of this. We’re hopelessly addicted. It’s something that we can’t get out of our system and the truth is…I don’t want to…
Yep…I’ve admitted it! It’s out in the open! I’m an addict. Hopelessly, wonderfully, inexorably and joyfully a missions addict. You know it’s been said that whatever you can’t get enough of is your god. I wish I could tell you that I’ve always had this desire. I haven’t. I caught the bug (the fever), whatever you want to call and Katy and Kandace have too. We are still recovering from Mexico and Texas last week, but it’s a good tired. We have Vacation Bible School
each night this week and so this tired 43-year-old “ain’t as young as he used to be.” I don’t bounce back as fast as I once did, but it’s a good tired! 🙂
I was thinking about addiction. Am I addicted to Jesus? Well let’s see:
Could I live without reading my Bible for 3 days?
Could I live without praying for 3 days?
Could I live without going to church for 3 months?
Could I live without talking to my Brothers and Sisters in Christ for 3 weeks?
Let me think about other addictions?
Could I do without my computer for 3 days? I’m having a problem with mine now and I’m trying to think (when can I give it up to get it in the shop and be without it for 3 days).
Could I go without my cell phone for 3 days? No scratch that…3 hours? Hmm…scratch that…3 minutes?

Boy…I know I’m “hoeing close to the corn” aren’t I? Well, sadly, I must admit that I think I’m addicted to many other things more deeply than to my Savior. I’m ashamed to say it, but it’s the truth. I say I love Jesus, but my actions often show something much different. I’m sorry Lord. Please forgive me. You are worthy of my best and often I give you leftovers. When I think of the amount of time I’ve wasted on that last list, it humbles me. I desire to do better and with God’s help I will.
It is true…whatever we can’t get enough of is our god. God help me to make it YOU!
