Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer your prayers and requests to God. Then, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. This peace will control the way you think and feel.
If we confess our sins to God, He can always be trusted to forgive us and take our sins away.
We are tempted by our own desires that drag us off and trap us. Our desires make us sin, and when sin is finished with us, it leaves us dead.
If you obey every law except one, you are guilty of breaking them all. God paid a great price for you. So use your body to honor God.
Philippians 4:6-7 ~ 1 John 1:9 ~ James 1:14-15 ~ James 2:10 ~ 1 Corinthians 6:20
Coping is not control. Many of us believe that as long as we cope with our problems we are in control of them.
Our coping mechanisms will eventually become our controllers if we don’t change them.
Eventually, when our coping mechanisms stop working we realize we are out of control, need to take responsibility for our bad choices and turn to God for help in doing so.
Step Two: I believe God exists, that he cares about me
and He can help me to regain control of my life.
