2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
The whole Bible is inspired by God. It is trustworthy and we should read it and apply it to our lives. It is our standard for testing everything else that claims to be true. It is our safeguard against false teaching, our source of guidance for how we should live.
God wants to teach us His promises and equip us to live for Him. How much time do you spend in God’s Word? Develop a plan for reading His Word daily, meditating on it and applying it.

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT SHARING OUR EXPERIENCE. STRENGTH AND HOPE
WE ARE GOD’S MESSENGERS You are my witnesses and my servants, chosen to know and to believe me and to understand that I alone am God. There is no other God; there never was and never will be. I am the Lord, and there is no other Savior. Isaiah 43:10-11
AS GOD’S MESSENGERS WE SHOULD BE BOLD If anyone publicly denies me, I will openly deny him before my Father in heaven.Matthew 10:33
THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL HELP US BE BOLD The Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power to testify about me with great effect. Acts 1:8
God has showered down upon us the richness of His grace—for how well He understands us and knows what is best for us at all times. In him lie hidden all the mighty, untapped treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Ephesians 1:8 ~ Colossians 2:3
All who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. And so we should not be like cringing, fearful slaves, but we should behave like God’s very own children, adopted into the bosom of his family, and calling to him, “Father, Father.” Romans 8:14-15
I have a strong belief that most people fail in the process of recovery because they don’t plan not to. Many of us think simply going through the motions of the Twelve Steps is going to keep us sober, It won’t! In Living Life Recovery, we have a slogan that says ‘Recovery is about learning to live life. Living life is more than just recovery.’
Outside of the Twelve Steps and meetings, what else are you doing about changing your life?
Psalms 32:11Good people, rejoice and be very happy in the LORD. All you who want to do right, rejoice!
I’ve come to change everything, turn everything right-side up. “It’s time to change your ways! Turn to face God so he can wipe away your sins, pour out showers of blessing to refresh you. 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. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
