Abandoned Children Left Behind!

The Vicious cycle of Addictions! 
And how to break it!

Matthew 19:14, 
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

     A drunken or addicted parent is absent from their children’s lives whenever they're under the influence of their drugs or alcohol. This is neglect and abandonment, which is child abuse and reckless endangerment, which results in their children growing up the equivalent of orphans and suffering tremendous emotional damage, trauma, and insecurity. This insecurity in turn, usually leads these children to use drugs and alcohol themselves to escape from the pain of deep emotional scars, the reality and emptiness of growing up orphaned and void of Loving and caring parents. Many of these children who are forced to raise themselves without supervision or guidance, turn to drugs and alcohol at an early age, and tend to grow up, (if they grow up at all), with every type of dysfunction imaginable. For all practical purposes, most of these children never fully mature or grow up mentally, emotionally, or spiritually without some type of divine intervention. And yes, that divine intervention is available, as God can, and will, and desires to, reach down and touch any of us who might fall into these unfortunate and painful circumstances, when we cry out to Him for help. Whether still in our childhood, or well into our adulthood, at any age, no matter what our backgrounds or circumstances might be, all that is required of us to be changed and saved, is a desire to change the road we’re on, a sincere willingness to turn our lives and wills over to God, and to repent, to have Faith in, and to believe in and accept His Son Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. In return, He promises us Eternal life with Him, Salvation. He introduces us to His Truth and promises us a brand new life filled with joy and peace, set free from the bondage of the sin that’s been keeping us in the darkness of addictions. He promises to keep us Saved and Sober!
