John 14:3

My aunt passed away last week. She was only 47 years old. She didn't die from natural causes. She died because of addiction- addiction to alcohol. What breaks my heart is that she didn't overcome and let her drinking problem beat her. It took over her life. What started out as as little bit became more and more and finally way too much. I loved her. I cannot believe she is gone. I can clearly picture her in front of me right now. To me, what I find most sad is that she could have accomplished so much more in this life had she not had an addiction. She was a beautiful lady with a heart that longed to do good. However, God could have used her in more powerful ways if only she had said no to the devil. Through this dark hour my heart is very heavy for my uncle and cousins. They lost their wife/mom and even though she hurt them because of her disease, they loved her. Satan did not win this battle because I believe my aunt is in heaven rejoicing with Jesus. Through all this I have learned that addiction is strong, but you can't let it beat you. God's plans are so much higher than that. My aunt will be missed and was loved by my family.

John 14:2-4 (New International Version,
2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Your sister in Christ,
