And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
One of the most devastating consequences of drug abuse is the loss of hope. Some individuals may lose their jobs, their cars, their valuable possessions and even their homes. However, not everyone that struggles with drug abuse does. The feeling of despair, the growing emotional and spiritual pain that results from addiction can be experienced by those who appear to have it all.
Drug abuse takes us away from our relationship with God. When we place drugs and alcohol ahead of our relationship with God we make idols of these things. The time and energy we put into using and getting drugs became our main focus. For those that have crossed the line into addiction, they may even find that their words, thoughts and actions are dictated by their desire to use rather than by God’s will. In this place of darkness, it is difficult to feel God’s love and comfort. We felt a spiritual emptiness that we attempted to fill with drugs and alcohol, but this only made the emptiness grow. The shame and guilt that accompanied our drug use and our actions while we were high led us deeper into despair.
