This journey of an addict and their family is one of hope on a road of hopelessness and despair. For decades families have faced the horrors and challenges of a loved one that has faced an addiction. Today we are facing an even more intense battle against heroin. Is there hope we can provide these lost souls who struggle each day? Is there hope for the family that are affected by these addictions? Let’s get those in trouble out of the environment they are drowning in and mentor them on how to burn bright again.
If you ever heard Natalie Grant’s song “Burn Bright” you would hear lyrics of a caring relative expressing the effects of someone they love bogged down by drugs and not living up to their potential. If you know someone hooked on heroin or has some other addiction it can be confusing and frustrating on how to handle them. You want to help but you can’t enable them. You want to learn to trust them again but you’ve been so hurt that your scars are inches thick.
There is hope! Try some of the steps I have personally implemented in my life experiences:
It’s on ongoing battle to deal with addictions. Life is unpredictable, uncontrollable and stressful. We have to give hope to these lost and weary people in our lives. They have potential, a flame that the devil is trying to extinguish, but we must not let them drown in their environment. We have to deliver them to safety and a future.
