January 17,2019 Through The Twelve Steps With Spiritual Truth From Scripture TODAY STEP 3

January 17,2019 Through The Twelve Steps With Spiritual Truth From Scripture TODAY STEP 3


Step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God .


Psalm 55 v 22 Give your burdens to the Lord,
and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.


There is no other higher power that gives you a two thousand page book full of promises . That's right promises and guarantees !It is a contract signed in blood. You heard me , BLOOD! Gods only Son Jesus Christ died to enforce and guarantee those promises . No other higher Power sends you a helper that takes up residence in your heart. Being available 24/7! My higher power (God) is alive and active and He sent His Son to die to give me Forgiveness and freedom. If your life is a mess and you continue to visit the local jail and rehabs then you must have the wrong higher power.Jesus Christ is the Truth The Life The Way!

Psalm 40 v 4 Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.




By Joseph Dickerson/Recovery Connections Network
Psalm 103:3 Who pardons all your iniquities,Who heals all your diseases.
