He’ll take away your desire to hallucinate on LSD, psilocybin, mescaline, and DMT. He’ll take away your desire to be drunk out of your skull or stoned out of your mind. He’ll take away your desire to be barbiturate-addled, speeding, and/or low on downers. He’ll take away your desire to roll on molly. He’ll replace the desire with a hunger to be bonkered out in the Spirit, receiving sober visions from the Lord, soberly drunk with joy in Christ, filled with God’s peace, or empowered by God’s zeal!

If you give it all to Him, Jesus will bring calm and peace to you.

If you give it all to Him, Jesus will help you to love people. Even the person in your life who once seemed unlovable, unforgivable, and unredeemable, whether they love you back or not in the way you want them to love you! And in addition, Jesus will help you to see how beloved you are by the God of the Universe!
If you give it all to Him, Jesus will help you to be content with what you’ve got! He’ll change your desires!

The sunsets, the conversations, the music, the adventures, the tasty food, the hot coffee, the sloppy kisses, the hugs, the naps, the amazing films, and all the other moments of beautiful life and love that He’s put right in front of you. He’ll help you to enjoy the enjoyable in a way that you’ve never enjoyed it before, without putting anything at the center of your life in a way that is abusive, compulsive, codependent, unhealthy or toxic!
