Celebrities are known widely of their craft or talent by way of media or marketing.
These classified as beautiful, mega-talented people marvel and entertain us with their talents of acting, instrument playing, magic trick performances, riding a surfboard, hitting, kicking or throwing a ball, writing, or just about anything that can be done above the general abilities of the average person.
But celebrities are not immune to the struggles of life.
Beauty, talent and riches don't give them a life that's demon-free.
Celebrities might have it worse than when they face a difficulty or are faced with a life-changing event. Their lives are much more transparent than ours. They don't have the privacy we have- whatever can be found out negative gets plastered all over the media for the world to see. Plus they are pressured to stay on top of their game, never look aged, and keep producing and performing to afford their lifestyle and fame. With the cameras flashing and fans screaming and money and all that's associated with being a celebrity, I'm sure it's easy to acquire a sense of power and importance and self sufficiency. And, once that happens, more is wanted in order to keep the image of success before the public.
But people are all born the same. Strip away the stuff and celebrities struggle with the same things
all people struggle with. However, perhaps celebrities struggle to a higher degree because they can easily afford many things they desire. Their prison has thicker, taller walls and bars.
This list of celebrities didn't win with substance abuse. Each had successful careers with undoubtedly continued success in their futures had they lived. But they couldn't break free from
the internal struggles which kept them unable to break from drugs and alcohol.
God can take you just as you are. All you have to do is reach out and ask for help and receive it.
So scroll through the many videos till you see a familiar face or name and listen to them tell their story.
Remember, God loves you regardless of your star quality and is patiently waiting for you to call
upon Him. He's willing and able to change your life, turn your struggles around and fill the void you're longing to have filled which only He can fill. The first step is admitting your inadequate to
face your demons without help. Ask. Believe, Receive. And the journey begins on a different road.
The road isn't easy, but don't give in to the lie that it's impossible. God is a big and mighty God if
you hook up with Him, your constant helper, the Holy Spirit, will be at your disposal 24/7.
If you want it, God's willing to give you the help to change your life around for the better. There are bright days in the forecast if you will reach out.
And speaking of a celebrity, it's my belief Miss Lindsay Lohan's life could change for the better,
or at least be out of the tabloid headlines and courts because of her drug and or alcohol abuse.
I wonder if she's content being in and out of the courts and substance treatment centers?
I'd like to see and hear her testimony of her life change when it happens.
Until next time, I'm on the straight and narrow road, and enjoying the journey with my Guide
leading the way.
