Psalms 69:20 They have broken my heart by saying evil things about me. It has left me helpless. I looked for pity, but I didn’t find any. I looked for someone to comfort me, but I didn’t find anyone.
The heart is the center of human spirit. Our emotions, thoughts, motivations, courage and actions are all heart driven.
I don’t know about you but the only thing that drove my spirit during my addiction was my ‘drug of choice.’ Mines was alcohol and my life revolved around the next drink.
Coming into recovery I had to learn to feel differently, to think differently and to act differently.
The Twelve Steps and the Bible taught me and continue to teach me who I really am. They taught me my strengths and weaknesses and showed me how to live a positive and productive life.
-Have you decided to live differently?
What The Bible Says
Here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life–your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life–and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.
It shouldn’t surprise us when his servants masquerade as servants of God. Satan does it all the time, dressing up as a beautiful angel of light.
Easy street is a dead-end street. Those who live there make their bellies their gods; belches are their praise; all they can think of is their appetites. But there’s far more to life for us. We’re citizens of high heaven! We’re waiting the arrival of the Savior, the Master, Jesus Christ, who will transform our earthy bodies into glorious bodies like his own. He’ll make us beautiful and whole with the same powerful skill by which he is putting everything as it should be, under and around him.
