Are You Consumed By Your Husband's Alcohol Consumption?
Do the words in the above graphic resonate with you? Have you found yourself playing detective day in and day out? Are you constantly trying to catch your husband in a lie? Was he really where he said he was? Is that alcohol I smell on his breath? Did his phone really die or did he turn it off? The list goes on and on.
How to Help Your Addicted Loved One
When your loved one has an addiction it can feel like you're helpless. You're not. As Christians we know prayer changes things! God hears us and provides healing. Healing may come in the form of providing you peace of mind, deliverance for your loved one, or strength to face the challenges. Ultimately, we know we can trust Him and His will for our life and the life of our loved one. If you feel like everything is out of your control - Pray!
