Be on Your Guard
1 Peter 5:8Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce and would like nothing better than to catch you napping
There is safety in numbers.
Growing up I was not a very sociable person. Not because I didn’t want to be but because I really never learned growing up how to belong. My parents tried encouraging me to join clubs and events to get me to mix with others, but I never really fitted in.
Recovery rescued me. I attended meetings and groups where there were people just like me. People who understood my struggles. Who were patient enough to give me time to discover who I was. Who encouraged me to discover my gifts and abilities and put them to good use.
- What are your gifts and abilities?
- How are you using them to help others?
