God is our mighty fortress, always ready to help in times of trouble. (Psa 46:1)
I was born in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland.
I now live in Melbourne Australia with my wife Karen and my three children Duncan (23) Mitchell (22) and Ashleigh (18).
I am a recovered alcoholic. recovered through the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit living in and working through me.
My life mission is to help people suffering from addiction to discover personal relationship with Jesus Christ so they to can experience what it means to be truly sober.
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. Ephesians 5:21-23
Building and rebuilding relationships is one of the most important tasks we will be required to carry out in recovery. Learning to love my wife (who has been in Church all of her life) was one of the most difficult parts of the recovery process for me. Thankfully when God gives us a task He also equips us to carry it out.
Only Christ offers true healing. Our job is to share His message of healing power through speaking the truth and living according to His principles.
Recovery requires truth. Hurts can’t be healed, habits can’t changed and hang-ups can’t be helped unless we get honest, fess up to them and trust God to overcome them.
“The Lord is a mighty rock, and he never does wrong. God can always be trusted to bring justice.” (Deut 32:4)
Jesus Christ the One true Higher Power
After he finished the sacrifice for sins, the Son took his honored place high in the heavens right alongside God, far higher than any angel in rank and rule. Did God ever say to an angel, “You’re my Son; today I celebrate you” or “I’m his Father, he’s my Son”? When he presents his honored Son to the world, he says, “All angels must worship him.” (Heb 1:3-6)
“How much longer will you enjoy being stupid fools?” (Prv 1:22)
Now is the time for CHANGE!
“You would not learn”
“You refused to respect the Lord.” (Prv 1:29)
Many people choose to live by their own rules, giving in to their own sinful impulses without considering God’s will. Recovery is a process, not a ‘Quick Fix’ of seeking God’s will and applying it to daily living.
We have had more than our fill of the scoffing of the proud and the contempt of the arrogant. (Psa 123:4)
Recovery takes time and perseverance. When we first begin others may doubt our ability to change and live differently. But, when we continue going to meetings, learning the talk and walking the walk it may not only change their mind but also challenge them to look at their own way of living.
“Trusting the Lord means safety.” Prv 29:25
We need faith to reach out and grasp the opportunities God presents us. He shows us grace and goodness by providing chances for us to exercise faith. http://ht.ly/lu3AR
