Month: January 2014

Day 14, January 14, 2014

Thought : God has located all the secret places in our lives. We cannot hide them, even by shutting God out. He can break any barrier of resistance we erect and enter locked-up places in our lives. God  can heal our isolation and unravel the problems of our […]

Day 13 – January 13, 2014

Thought:The road to winning is failure. Very few people get it right the first time. But failure need not be final. After knowing the disaster of defeat and the fury of failure most of us want to succeed, and are willing to go to any lengths to achieve […]

Day 12 – January 12, 2014

Thought: “Lock the door.” Jesus said. Shut out the world and unlock the door to God by separating yourself from everything else. This is an invitation to intimate relationship with God. Psalm 91:1-6 describes something of the unique positioning of a believer who obeys God. It is the […]

Day 11, January 11 2014

Thought: The willingness to share or stories, without holding back from the truth is one of the main contributions to the success of our meetings and recovery. Sharing encourages understanding, interest, support and fellowship. We feel better once we have been able to share our experience, strength and […]

Day 10 – January 10, 2014

Thought: In John 9 a poor blind beggar was despised and after accepting the healing ministry of Jesus found himself expelled from Jewish society. In that situation, Jesus stepped into the gap and provided compassionate friendship. He invited the man to believe in His ability to heal the […]

Day 9 – January 9, 2014

Thought: Sometimes when we struggle in recovery we feel that nobody really cares or understands what we are going through. Nothing could be further from the truth. Everyone who enters recovery connects with at least one other person in recovery. Usually someone who has had a similar experience […]

Day 8 – January 8, 2014

Thought: Only those who are prepared to cut their links with the past and venture into future self-denial and application of the steps  will qualify in reaching the goal. Having begun to walk the walk we must now decide daily to endure. We cannot allow ourselves to be […]

God’s plan for you

If God does have a plan for you how do you know what it is and whether you are following it? When I walk into the thick of trouble,  keep me alive in the angry turmoil. ………   Finish what you started in me, God. Your love is eternal—don’t quit on me […]

Day 7 – January 7, 214

Thought: When we decide to let God have His way with us revolutionary things happen. As they do they can cause us fear and sometimes make us want to run away and return to the familiarity of our addictions and compulsions.  In the scripture below Jonah clearly heard […]

Day 6 – January 6, 2014

Today’s devotion is dedicated to Wayne (Mouse) Perry, who was tragically stabbed in Melbourne as he slept at his squat down by the Yarra. R.I.P: Wayne, we will miss you.. Thought: The Bible tells us not to worry about the lies people tell about us. Because God protects […]
