Understand the basics

John 3:11-12 Listen carefully. I’m speaking sober truth to you. I speak only of what I know by experience; I give witness only to what I have seen with my own eyes. There is nothing secondhand here, no hearsay. Yet instead of facing the evidence and accepting it, […]

Progress not perfection

The A.A. Big Book says, “Many of us exclaimed, “What an order! I can’t go through with it.” Do not be discouraged. No one among us has been able to maintain anything like perfect adherence to these principles. We are not saints. The point is, that we are […]

Stop blaming God

Sometimes we may ask God. Why? Why did You allow me to become an addict? Why did You allow my marriage to fall apart? Why did you allow me to lose my job, family etc. If you are tempted to put the blame on Him, ask yourself these […]

It is important to express gratitude

When we reject God and His plan for our lives we live in spiritual darkness. When we come to our senses and ask God for His forgiveness and deliverance he helps us escape the darkness and shines His light through us. 1. We should always express gratitude to […]

Hide and seek! God always wins …

There are millions of people who are playing the frustrating game of hide and go seek with God. On a daily basis there are many who spend a considerable amount of time trying to either hide illicit actions from him or trying to evade service on his behalf. […]

Meditate on God’s purpose for you

Meditation means to contemplate or reflect on something. In recovery we need to take time to meditate on God’s Word and the principles of recovery. By doing so we will learn God’s purpose (will for us) and the direction He wants us to go in. Joshua 1:8 Always […]

One God and One Mediator

There is one God and one mediator so that human beings can reach God. That way is through Christ Jesus, who is himself human. Listen, people! The Lord our God is the only Lord. A mediator is not needed when there is only one side, and God is […]
