Colossians 2:6 You accepted Christ Jesus as Lord,
so continue to live following him.
There is no gain without pain. Once we have wrestled with the agony of loss of friends and everything belonging to our addictive and compulsive life style we can start living the positive thinking program.
God has a new way of living into which He wants to lead us. There are whole new worlds to conquer, new goals to set and achieve and He will equip us for the journey ahead.
