Why Do People Drink As They Do?

i had forgotten that i had received the poem that follows, yet then in a moment in time most all of it was brought to mind once again.

The poem was written back in the 70's for a next door neighbor who had a drinking problem.

Why do people drink as they do?
Could be a man, a woman, or even you.

"Never give up", you hear it said all the time,
Keep looking and searching for what's mine.

Yet, how long to endure that grueling pace?
With no friend, no love, to find it's rightful place.

And so eyes fill with tears, as one's heart seems to bleed,
Yet drinking doesn't help in that time of need.

So why then revert to that old yet new?
That fickle friend whose head you unscrew.

For it could be that in that darkest hour,
That the GOD above would grant you the power?

The power of love, the power of caring,
And then in this temporal life, something well worth sharing.

Not exactly word for word as it was back then, and Thankfully i had been delivered from being a "party drunk fool" prior to that time!

For it was simply revealed to me one day that it was best to stay sober and drink nothing but "iceberg cocktails(water over ice)" as others played the "fool". Sadly, those "fools" who would suffer through the 'day after' with no recollection of the so-called "good times" the night before(thankfully such so-called "good times" no longer have their portion in The Life i received)!

Soon after receiving that revelation, and in a time of great trials, i shouted out loud: 

"HELP, if there is a "GOD", HELP"!

And in that instant i experienced A Miracle! For "GOD revealed HIMself unto me" even as i shouted out The Words i received,  "GOD! if you are a GOD, YOU're a GOD of TRUTH! For a lie never existed and never will, so i need to abide in The TRUTH"(francis 1:1-2)

Such were the first Revelations i received from The ONE WHOM i would come to REALize IS The ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD(SPIRIT) and FATHER(CREATOR) of ALL! HE WHO IS The FATHER and GOD of The Messiah and His brethren! (John 17:3, John 20:17)

However, HE had not yet led me to HIS Son The Messiah. 

Yet approx 6 years later HE DID lead me to "HIS Only Begotten Son", and then The Messiah returned me unto The ONE i had known only as GOD, yet then REALized that HE WAS, IS, and ALWAYS WILL BE "Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT)"! (John 3:16; 6:44; 14:6)

Yes! Thankfully "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT! (John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23)

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(TRUTH/SPIRIT)! (John 20:17)

And it is needful to REALize that The Messiah received both His Life and His Teachings from "Our FATHER and GOD", and that liken unto The Messiah so also have His brethren REALized, "i can do nothing of My own self"....... (John 5:19,30; 7:18; 8:28-29; 12:49-50; 14:6,10,23-24)

And Thankfully The Life and The Teachings which The Messiah received from "Our FATHER and GOD" revealed "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"! (John 14:6)

That "Narrow Way" that IS "FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"....... (Matthew 7:14, Luke 22:42)

And once again: Liken unto The Messiah, so also have His brethren REALized "i can do nothing of my own self"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)

So it is we "cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"! (Luke 18:7,John 20:17

Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:

FATHER Help!    

HE DID!       and HE does.......

So Thankfully, "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17;5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER (TRUTH, SPIRIT, CREATOR, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)! (John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18)
