Speak Up!

Psalm 142:2 I pour out my problem to him. I tell him about my trouble.

Real men don’t ask for help! That is what I believed growing up. Real worked hard, played hard and were fine under all circumstances. If something wasn’t right, you fixed it.

That is the attitude I had when I first decided I needed to do something about my drinking. I knew I was an alcoholic and believed changing it was up to me. It had nothing to do with anyone or anything else. Is it any wonder it never worked?

I put all my effort into fixing my drinking problem and ignoring my living problem. Recovery is not just about believing God exists but also believing He cares, is willing to listen to us and to help us recover.

  • Are you convinced God cares about you?
  • Are you ready to talk to Him about your problems?

Anyone who guards what he says guards his life. But anyone who speaks without thinking will be destroyed. Proverbs 13:3

Everyone should be quick to listen. But they should be slow to speak. They should be slow to get angry. James 1:19

Listen to advice and accept what you are taught. In the end you will be wise. Proverbs 19:20

Prayer: Lord help me today to speak honestly and openly to You.
