Having identified the people, I have harmed, I will now go and make restitution to them. Unless to do is going to cause them or other pain or suffering.

All those who flee to him to save them can take new courage…………….. This certain hope of being saved is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. Hebrews 6:18-19 TLB

Through alcohol and other mind-altering substances, I thought I had discovered a way to avoid facing up to myself and I thought I was tough. Aggression became my second nature. Later in my drinking, the target of my resentment and aggression became other people, circumstances, and other events in my life that became. Drinking, drugging, and staying away from those close to me became my norm.  I thought “If they don’t know where I am and what I am doing it won’t affect them.” How wrong was I? This was mainly in my teenage years and early 20’s.

Then it happened! A life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ.  I found the Salvation Army Bridge Programme in South Australia and anchored my life in Him. I faced the facts about myself, my circumstances, my resentment, and my aggression, and with His help repaired the relationships in my life from which the hurt and the pain were stopping me from living the life He has prepared for me.

PRAYER: God I need something. I NEED YOU!
