Battling and Overcoming Drug Addiction According to the Bible

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 00:14:00 +0000

Drug addiction in America has become an unnatural epidemic that affects the mind, and attacks the spirit like a vamp iritic-host. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse – “Most drugs affect the brain's "reward circuit" by flooding it with the chemical messenger dopamine. This reward system controls the body's ability to feel pleasure and motivates a person to repeat behaviors needed to thrive, such as eating and spending time with loved ones. This overstimulation of the reward circuit causes the intensely pleasurable "high" that can lead people to take a drug again and again.” Faith is a very powerful thing, but faith alone cannot battle the addition.Proverbs; 29:1 “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.” Not only does drug abuse destroy the mind, it also destroys the very fabric of the “reward circuit” – which controls every thought process we as humans depend – to function in a rational manner.Proverbs; 29:2 “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” These words speak of prophecy, as the world today has become infiltrated with drugs – it has placed a burden on innocent souls – corrupted by a system ruled by unrelenting hypocrisy.Proverbs; 29:23 “A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.” We as a nation must uphold a higher standard of living – where the process of eradicating drugs from our society must become our main mission. But, unfortunately, man has become corrupted with the profit of drug-making, and our nation of many people is losing the battle-war on drugs. Only those people who seek a higher spiritual order can learn to release themselves from the bondage of drug addiction.Psalms; 5:1 “Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.” “Despite being aware of these harmful outcomes, many people who use drugs continue to take them, which is the nature of addiction.”  A NIH notation – about  the ills of drug addiction.Psalms; 5:5 “The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.”Each and every person will be judged for what they do, and these drug dealers – however they classify their faction – contribute to the ongoing drug dilemma in America.Psalms; 12:1 “Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.” To, people who suffer with drug addition, please be acknowledged – that there are many opportunities available to end a drug addicted situation. Prayer, support groups, and family/church support are true accessible options; only diligent will power – can facilitate first steps – walking the road to live a drug-free life.Resource Help Link: Credit: Hdepot Wikimedia Creative Commons[...]

Born of Yesterday Born of Today

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 01:40:00 +0000

Born of freedom we be of nationalities; the Africans, the Jewish, the unjustifiably named American-Indians, the Aztec Indians, the Spanish-Americans, the Civil War African-Americans, the Indian people of India, the improvised Chinese peoples, and too many other nationalities neglected by the history of prejudice.

Born of freedom we be – great peoples of the world, born of yesteryear, born into the unthinkable circumstance of ignorant darkness. The great spirit of humanity has always been the beacon of light that place our spiritual self in perpetual motion. It is the continuous freedom – the true flight of the phoenix – born of today, born of yesterday.

Nothing new, nothing gained will ever come from fear of our indefinite human evolution. It is an iniquity of power that divides a nation, and left corruptible – will be the very thing that keeps prejudice and elitism alive – living deep and unsubstantiated in the heart of the denier. Born of yesterday we are, born of today is the face of what we as a nation will ultimately become – as we reside in a falsehood of abstract death.

Rou in nostalgie - 'n gevoelloosheid van die dood is die ewige smarte - sing

A million songs our African American brothers and sisters have sung – living proof
living in a misunderstood place, still.

Born of yesterday is where some existing spirits live in the mind of a dead spirit.

We can only be resurrected when the guiltless love we share is manifested, shared, and coordinated by the innocent hands of this dispelled time.

10 Scripture Quotes to Power Your Day in 2017 and Beyond

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 02:48:00 +0000

The Holy Bible and rare scriptural doctrine contains many verses that carry effective forms of inspiration, and when the road we travel seems to wear down our spiritual platform – these words – we turn to in times of duress can set our spirit at continuous peace. Many well-established preachers, pastors and women of faith often use scripture verses as a stage to support their sermons. Becoming a better Christian person is all about spiritual reinforcement, this is the bedrock of stability in striving to live a healthy Christian life. Where do we find the power to sustain our spiritual growth when our spiritual well is depleted? There may be no better place to conduct this task - than in the privacy of your home – while resting in meditation, reading and continuously learning to appreciate the Bible and what it provides. The next passages I have provided are for spiritual support to power your day in 2017 and beyond.1. Psalms; 6:2 “Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.”  2. Psalms; 7:1 “O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:”3. Psalms; 7:8 “The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.” 4. Proverbs; 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.” 5. Proverbs; 25:28 “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.”6. Proverbs; 31:10 “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.”7. Matthew; 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:” 8. Matthew; 28:20 “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” 9. Second – Corinthians; 1:4 “Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” 10. Revelation; 22:17 “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” We become free when we release the burden from our flesh, we are all spiritual creatures, and some will be blinded by the light, and some will see the light.

When Love Is No More

No more heartache for the broken hearted.No more love for when love has departed from the heavy heart.No more love for the persecution of love.No more arguments for the sake of love.No more battling - trying to hold on to love.No more tomorrows where the kiss of lovePassed away like a thief in the night.When love is no moreTo no fault of your ownThe days seem like an eternity of endless night.When love is no more,The lonely tears feel like unkind blessings,The one type of blessing That has seemed to travel so far away.When love is no moreIt is like the husband and wife who hateThe sound of each others heartbeat.When love is no moreWe turn away from each other in sorrowWishing for a better day,A day we know that will never come.Photo Credit: Alfonso Coley allowfullscreen="" class="YOUTUBE-iframe-video" data-thumbnail-src="" frameborder="0" height="266" src="" width="320">YouTube Video: Rod Mckuen -- Seasons In The Sun[...]

Pictures and Memories

Sun, 15 Jul 2012 03:52:00 +0000

Pictures and memories is that we have of you now,
and yes – they will have to do
to appease our lovely desire not forget what is precious.
Pictures and memories are all that are left of you now,
and as your spirit moves between us
we will honor your memory in the proceeding days to come.
Pictures and memories are such a wonderful thing,
a thing sort of like being born more than once or twice.
Love is a fleeting thing for those that never believed in love.
The fleeting moment of this time
expends so much energy,
and yet, keeps everything in its proper perspective.
Pictures and memories constantly remind us of that gentle time
when everything seemed perfect
and would never change –
only by the way of an accident would this embellish the
memory of your smile.
Pictures and memories are all that will never grow old
of your memory, and yet – we all will soon grow old
one day if time permits this to be so.
Your father and mother have collected pictures and memories
in their mind, and they will find the time
to place them in a place where eternity exist
and share the memory of good times as it was meant to be.

A Rite of Passage for Aaron the Befallen Son

Thu, 12 Jul 2012 05:16:00 +0000

The brevity of the moment has come to pass - as my nephew Aaron Coley has now succumbed to a swimming accident that occurred more than two weeks ago – which he would not survive from this tragic accident. My brother is presently torn between the why and why God did this had to happen to his son whom had such a bright and promising future? There is no easy answer to this question on why some people live a long and prosperous life, and why some accidents happen. I wrestled with how to put in writing about my feelings on how I could write anything pertaining to my nephew premature and untimely death. It is a rite of passage that I dedicate these words to my feelings ofdeep sorrow about the enduring brevity of my nephew leaving this earth a little too soon, a little less before the maturity of his life, where his dreams will never come to fruition before this lifetime. Bitter sweet is this moment in time, two days before my fifty second birthday, and six days past my brother forty eighth birthday. I wish that I had more time to spend contented moments with my nephew, but it makes no difference about what I previously wished for, something that could have happened, but never will come to light of this time and place. This is a most bitter sweet moment for the mother, father, and family members, but it is also a time and opportunity for the family to reflect upon the happy times, and also not a time to echo nor reflect upon the negative affect of losing a child at such a tender age.A rite of passage is what all of my family will live with today and tomorrow, and it is up to each and every one of us to bridge the inconsistency of this life, where our well connected family will need to support and love each other unconditionally in this most delicate time. This is the road we travel, the path which leads us into eternity arms of sweet release. As I spoke with my brother about his pain of losing a son, I also let him know that he does not walk alone in his pain. My Brother is very fortunate to have an abundance of family support to walk with him through this troubled time.The call of God has welcomed a new spirit into the arms of the vast universe of Heaven - which we all struggle with the complexity of life and death. Even though many of us may not want to accept this death as premature, we all will have to come to terms with and learn to accept the the reality of this most difficult time.  A long life my nephew will not have, but his spirit will remain within the heart, mind and soul of each family member whom loved him dearly, and traveling through this heart wrenching moment, this death will not separate us, it will indeed make us stronger in our living deeper spirit, more compassionate in our depth of this moment in time, and hpoefully become more loving in our deliberate dense relationships. Friends and family will remember Aaron the befallen son, a star that is part of eternity stars now – the wonderful corridors of light – where our tears are forgiven for the broken hearted.

Where Are The Supermen?

Fri, 06 Jul 2012 03:17:00 +0000

No tears when we are born from this earth,
and yet - the baby cries out for constant love.
But the golden veil responds back from a ferocious death,
and in turn repels the energy of this universe.
In some honest desperation
our wisdom is tested by what we believe
not to be, and in our last desperate act
we always cling to the belief of the impossible.
Between the innocent child whom has no super hero,
it is the stark reality of the belief
of love reverent before his spirit may grow not to die.
The love that keeps us grounded
in this life, is living between
what is here and there.
Where are the supermen who will save my child
from this disparity?
Where are the supermen
who have no idea
how to save my brothers child?
Where are the supermen whom look so wonderful -
but yet know the consequence of this fragile life of this shuddering time?

A Prayer for Aaron W. McMullen Coley

Fri, 06 Jul 2012 00:32:00 +0000

The most paradoxical thing in the world happened to me just before I began to start a new Blogger project Blog relating to family values. Upon retrieving my phone messages two weeks ago – I received an urgent disturbing message from my brother stating that his son Aaron Coley befell to a near death swimming accident, and that he is currently on life support at U Mass Memorial hospital in Massachusetts. One day before I decided to postpone my new Blogger Blog, it occurred to me that I should give my Blog a more defined purpose – pertaining to the subject matter to be included in the Blog, but little did I know that this turn of events would lead me to re-think what my very first Blog article would be about, in addition to what my Blog name would consist of.This turn of events has definitely changed my perspective about the dynamics on what my family values Blog will be about. It has awakened in me a new defining purpose that my Blog will not only be about my family recent turning of unfortunate events, but it will include all facets of family life that shape America today. I cannot intelligently speak about family values from other countries around the world, due to the fact that my birthright rest in the United States, but that may be even more so why this Blog may be a healing place where any person can share their personal stories about family values. It would take a very well traveled person to speak about their other extended family values, and just maybe – this is where my journey begins with this Blog. Maybe this is an opportunity on how we all can make an effort to assert our self in being proactive with our loved ones, instead of being disconnected by feeling remorse for not being a life support in the bad times – which matter the most.Upon very deep and contemplative thought, my wish is for this Blog to be about healing, staying connected with family, learning to love and support your family for the good, bad, and ugly.My constant prayer will be for my nephew to recover from this tragic and unfortunate accident, and to also to be able to live a long and prosperous life. My other prayer will be for the recovery of something lost, something we are all longing for, something that keeps us together as a family, love. This one word carries a lot of weight, but in actuality – it is the glue that keeps a family from falling apart. Hopefully it is the glue that bonds our love deeper into the understanding of family unity. Often times many family members carry the weight of bad feelings, unhealthy grudges – which in turn lead to a conflict between a disconnections in how a family relationship exist. My family has undergone several trials and tribulations throughout the years, and yet – we have become better stewards of our responsibility on being the best family we can be, to help support each other. Do not let tragedy bring your family together under false pretenses, join hands and hearts and love one another unconditionally, it is the glue which keeps the fabric of a family from falling apart.My family Blog is about the ancestry of human evolution. We are all part of a master plan, but in this life - you live, so share your family with the world. If you like to leave a prayer for my nephew, please feel free to do so, and come share your family values, opinions, and feel free to leave your comments on the Tragic Survivor Blog.
