Chronicles of a Completely Unperfect Mom

Psalm 109

Filed under: Following God's Path,Quitting Smoking — Mom @ 10:15 pm

To help me find my way back to God, I recently purchased a Bible that contains 5 minute Bible studies throughout the book.  Given my recent struggles to quit smoking, a study on freedom from addiction caught my eye.

“I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they shake their heads.” Psalm 109:25

This verse rings very true of many addictions and definitely leaped off the page to me.  Smoking is a dirty, nasty habit, and many people are quick to chastise smokers as though we don’t know it’s not healthy.  Even those who are “trying to help” tend to do so in a negative way.

“Help me O Lord my God; save me in accordance with your love.” Psalm 109:26

I know that quitting smoking is something I want to quit.  I also know how easy it is to find a feeble excuse to falter.  I pray that the Lord will be with me and help me through this.

  2. I am sure that this journey of quitting is tough. I can’t imagine. I will admit that I am questioning my own addiction to food…and while I’m trying to watch what I eat I find the battle to be a hard one. Thinking of you as we each battle the things that hold us down.
