The Crafty Fisherman (Satan)

Addictions can drag us down into despair
Satan is a very skilled adversary! He knows our strengths and our weakness's better than we do! He will craft his lures to our specific desires, Some artificial vices that he uses are Alcohol, Drugs, Video games, Pornography. All of which dull our sensitivity to the promptings of the Holy Spirit!  Just as the fly fisherman, Satan want to remove us from the stream(the straight and narrow path). We know that Satan's plan is not to catch and release!
Some people may fall subject to these addictions. When we give into this habit we start to lose our agency! When that happens Lucifer can have a stronger influence in our thoughts, feelings, and even our actions.

Its through our Savior we can be freed
For those who struggle with addiction and my need a helping hand, remember that God loves ALL of his children including YOU! Now as a baby when you are struggling what to you do? You cry! Now we know through out the scriptures they tell us to cry unto the Lord! To me that means speak to him through prayer with all of your thoughts as well as emotions! We know that with the Lords help we can do are things and all things are possible! As you break free of this addiction you will feel closer to our Heavenly Father and recognize his hand in your life more abundantly!
