It feels good to know that I have not allowed disobedience and carelessness to make me ineffective in my purpose as a Christian by not going gambling. Gambling is a sin for me. It is a tough pill to swallow, but for me it is true. I completely understand that fact. I do not want others to feel condemned because of my choice of words. I do wish that my decision might free someone else from their addiction. Restraining myself when faced with the decision to obey the prompting of the Holy Spirit is only part of my responsibility to be free of addiction. Whether it is addiction to alcohol or to going to the casino. The Word says that I do not have a spirit of fear or timidity, but of love, power, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7.) I can enjoy a sound mind when I refuse the invitation to go gambling.
I am still afraid for the world to see what I am reflecting in the rest of my life. Does that make any sense to anyone else. Time has gotten away from me again. I will try to come back on my lunch break or something.
