Since I have been in Bible-based recovery (May 1989) my life has changed but who I am is basically the same person. Sure I act and react to things differently. My knowledge and understanding of God’s way of living have improved and, I have had to change my mind and my behaviors on many of the things I learned growing up.

I AM A CHILD OF GOD
To all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in his name, John 1:12

I AM A FRIEND OF GOD
I’m no longer calling you servants because servants don’t understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I’ve named you friends because I’ve let you in on everything I’ve heard from the Father. John 15:15

I AM CREATED IN HIS IMAGE
God made man like his Maker. Like God did God make man; Man and maid did he make them. Genesis 1:27

IN HIS SPIRIT I CAN BE WISE AND STRONG
The Holy Spirit, God’s gift, does not want you to be afraid of people, but to be wise and strong, and to love them and enjoy being with them. 2 Timothy 1:7
