“Without the possibility of choice and the exercise of choice one is not a person but a member, an instrument, a thing.”
~ Archibald MacLeish ~
Spirituality involves the freedom to change. Growth requires a variety of choices. My past addiction was a life of slavery because it removed my creative choice and left me obsessing about drugs and alcohol. My life, conversation, and thoughts revolved around the bottle, and I was oblivious to the true meaning of life.
My freedom to experience the spiritual power of God’s creativity was lost in the mindless craving for drugs. In this sense, drug addiction is slavery.
Today I am free to see God’s world in people, places, and things. Now I make the choice to live, love, and laugh.
I am growing in my awareness of Your multifaceted love for me.
