This post is intended for me, but hopefully it helps you too. I am the prodigal child returned and I have some baggage to shake off which will get easier with time. I will get through it with Christ and Scripture. I may add more to this, but I’ll settle for this for now.
James 4: 7 :Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
James 1:12 “Blessed is the one who endures trials, because when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life that God[d] has promised to those who love him.”
Proverbs 25:28 “A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls”.
Galations 5:1 “For freedom, Christ set us free. Stand firm, then, and don’t submit again to a yoke of slavery.”
I’ll probably edit this later, but am using it as a quick reference.
