The Good Shepherd
Psalm 1:1-2 How well God must like you– you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon, you don’t slink along Dead-End Road, you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College. Instead, you thrill to God’s Word, you chew on Scripture day and night.
When we first discovered alcohol and drugs we found a ‘friend’ to help us face up to life’s problems. It wasn’t long before that ‘friend’ became our biggest problem. To begin with, alcohol and drugs made our lives bearable, full and satisfying. Then we learned all we were left with was heartache and headaches.
It can be a shock to the system when we first discover an unfriendly foe we have supported, liked and treated generously. It can be a slap in the face, a hit where it hurts, a kick in the teeth. But, it is important to be woken to the truth. To reach a ‘turning point’ and discover that through recovery life’s problems can be faced without the use of alcohol and drugs. Relationship with Jesus Christ is our Way to discover and enjoying freedom.
I will delight in the Lord! Enjoy the freedom which is only found when I love in harmony with Him as my One True Higher Power. We are all God’s children! #Turn #Reach #Discover
