As I was driving this morning Tom Ford by Jay-Z played on the radio. As I thought about the words, I don’t pop molly, my mind drifted to my pot head days. I used to smoke to cope with depression. At some point I could not enjoy anything without it. I needed it to eat, to sleep, to stop crying, to deal with stress, to celebrate, to be happy, basically to live. There was a point where I wanted to stop but it still took another year to completely quit. Now I get high off Jesus. I experience a greater high from praising. Substances poison the soul and body. It’s a temporary fix that is deadly. Praise heals the soul and body. If you suffer from substance abuse and want a way out, I challenge you to quit and try praise. If you don’t know where to begin, talk to God. He will show you how. Even if you don’t want to praise, just quit. Get help and a good support system. Don’t pop!
