The Eyes of Death
I'm so tired of drugs taking the lives of so many young people. I cannot even begin to count how many funerals we've had in our community over the past 2 years due to drugs and alcohol. I'm praying... I really praying... but the bottom line is that each of these people who are trapped by the demon of addiction must come to a decision themselves that they are done. I wish I could fix them all. I wish I could destroy all the drugs. But it just does not work that way... and I know that if things don't change... and soon... there will be more funerals. The one I sat with today... and the once beautiful young woman I know who has wasted away to barely more than skin stretched on a skeleton because of her use of meth. The promising athlete who lost it all because he could not stop hitting the crack pipe. I could go on and on... but this demonic force of drug addiction is running rampant in Galesburg... and I hate it! I'm tired of staring into the eyes of death that sit in the sunken faces of 20 something year old kids!
Lord... we need an earth shaking revival in Galesburg.
