You can’t exist on your story forever!

Whether we acknowledge it or not, we all care what other people think about us and say about us. A couple of weeks ago a comment on one of my posts made me think. The comment was “your story is good but you can’t exist on it forever.” In Exodus 23:1-2 the Bible says “Don’t […]

The A.A. Big Book in Chapter 6 says:“Having made our personal inventory, what shall we do about it? We have been trying to get a new attitude, a new relationship with our Creator, and to discover the obstacles in our path.” All of us, whether in recovery or not are trying to live a better […]

Thought for Today – Archie Boyle

Preparing for Thursday night’s ‘Celebrate Recovery’ in Melbourne I was looking for a folder to put my notes in.
