Following Jesus

None of us intentionally set out to do the wrong thing. We do what we believe is right. Unfortunately, sometimes it isn’t. I first made a decision to recover from addiction in 1987. I entered rehab, I attended A.A. I learned and applied the Twelve Steps according to […]

Appetite – What The Bible Says

Don’t go and stuff yourself! That would be just the same as cutting your throat. Wise men and fools alike spend their lives scratching for food and never seem to get enough. Both have the same problem, yet the poor man who is wise lives a far better life. […]

A Change of Appetite

Matthew 5:6 God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they will be satisfied. We cannot live on yesterdays intake. Nor will we survive very long on an unhealthy diet. Hamburgers, fish, and chips will satisfy our hunger but they bloat the stomach and dull our […]

Proverbs 16:18 If you are proud, you will be destroyed. If you are proud, you will fall. With humility comes wisdom and with wisdom comes honor. Before coming to The Salvation Army Bridge Program I was also in rehab in Rockingham in Western Australia. Where I learned all […]

We are all familiar with the question. As kids we were often in trouble, trying to find acceptable answers to the question. Out of our comfort zones as we attempted to justify wrong decisions and actions. In 1 Kings 19: we read of Elijah running away from an […]

Talk to God then Listen

There are more troubles all around me than I can count. My sins have caught up with me, and I can’t see any longer. My sins are more than the hairs of my head. I have lost all hope. Psalm 40:12 Sin creates a barrier between us and […]

What do you see in your future with God?

Psalms 41:4 I said, “Lord, show me your favor. Heal me. I have sinned against you.” Pouring our heart out to God opens up the way to forgiveness. Forgiveness opens up the way to change. Personal experience of God’s pardon in my life helped me to seriously consider […]

About Encouragement, Comfort and Fellowship

Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from His love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. Don’t […]
