Does the thought of eating vomit make you feel sick to your stomach? Would you eat your own vomit? It’s amazing that Dogs will go back to their vomit and eat it. Sounds Gross doesn’t it? Did you know we do the same thing?
“As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness.” – Proverbs 26:11 (NLT)
What is your vomit? Is it a drug you like the feeling of? Is it that sweetroll that keeps getting “stolen.” Is it a lie you tell others to feel good about yourself? My vomit is my sexual desires. I tend to go to them for comfort. When someone vomits, its because something was bad. I vomit each time I eat bug poison. If I didn’t, I would more than likely die. So, why would I go back to it? … Theres the question… Why go back to something you know will make you sick.
“They prove the truth of this proverb: “A Dog returns to its vomit.” and another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”” – 2 Peter 2:22 (NLT)
This is the definition of an addiction. The addition comes in many forms. Some we think are disgusting, alcoholism, meth, sexual, etc. But most of us forget the “smaller” additions.
“If you find honey, eat just enough – too much of it and you will vomit.” – Proverbs 26:16 (NIV)
Did you know honey can be an addition? Yep, food is a curse and a blessing. I love a spoon full of honey because it makes the medicine go down. Did you know honey used correctly can help you with your sinus? Yep that’s true. Did you know if you eat to much honey each day, it leads to diabetes?
If food can be an addition, what else can be an addition for you?
- Social media
- The Gym
- and much more
Anything that takes up your world. Another way to put addition, Idol worship. Your gym time can be you putting yourself as an idol. Did you know the greatest idol we have is ourselves. There is hope tho.
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And god is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” – 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)
Our God is an awesome God. He knows what we will do before we do it. He places things in our way to show us what we are doing. More importantly, He places people. My wife has been my biggest support while going through PTSD. She was there when I choose to forgive the person who hurt me. She was there when I suffered from pain. She has been by my side this whole time. God has put people in our lives to grow us and be there for us. The biggest part if it tho is admitting it and reaching out to those who can help.
If you have any questions on how to reach out to others, feel free to message me. If God is poking you, Stop what you are doing and listen to Him. Serious, stop reading this blog and talk to Him.
