One More Time

One more time


One more time means saying "Yes" again.
Yes to getting back on the bike again after falling down
Yes to doing something when I'm afraid
Yes to my marriage when we've seen more bad and ugly rather than good
Yes says, "I'm gonna find the good."

For the addict friend "One more time" could mean a choice between life and death.
Yes for an addict could mean "This one last hit."

But One more time for an addict is like playing Russian Roulette.
It's like pulling the trigger of a loaded gun,
putting it up to your head,
and hoping the bullet doesn't enter the chamber.



Every time you pull the trigger and take the drug, you are taking a chance with your life.
But since nothing bad happens, you pull the trigger again.

One More Time could mean the difference between "it destroyed your brain and you no longer function normally,"

OR "You've just OD'd and you're dead."

Or your family member

Or your friend

Or someone that just simply mattered.

LISTEN, You may think you have control over it but you DON'T!
It controls YOU!
Each and every time
Deeper and further off the path of Truth.

Saying "Yes" means your saying "No" to something.

Look at what you've said, "No," to.
No to Your family
No to Your precious kids

No to life
With Each and Every time you steal, manipulate, lie...

All for the next high
Is it worth it?

You've just sold your soul...
For a rock
Or powder
Or a drink
Or liquid in a freaking spoon

The insanity of it!

You've been Duped, Deceived, Snowed, Tricked, Trapped...

You are SELLING yourself for something that is DESTROYING you, little by little...
With every shot
Every snort
Every puff
Every single hit.

It's time to stop the madness
Get off the ride
and
To live again
LOOK It's hard. It's REALLY hard.

But it can be done.

Surround yourself with people that will help you sort out the good yes's and the bad yes's. 
You need a voice in your ear that will help you decipher the two.

To say...

Yes to life and no to destruction
Yes to peace and no to chaos
Yes to healing and no to perpetual sickness
Yes to hope and no to despair
Yes to redemption and reconciliation

This Yes, Oh THIS Yes...
means you are saying Yes to Jesus.

He is Life and Peace and Healing and Hope and offers Redemption and Reconciliation.

Cry out to the Lord today and say,
Yes to Jesus.



He will give you the strength you need for the road to recovery.



Much Love and Peace,
Julie
