August 3 Chapter 11 v 2 TWELVE STEPPING WITH STRENGTH FROM THE PSALMS
The wicked are stringing their bows and fitting their arrows on the bowstrings .
They shoot from the shadows at those whose hearts are right .
STEP 5 - Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Sometimes in our lives others will be jealous of our success . Especially when we get sober ! We will discover if we are truly honest in working step 5 that our past relationships were with people we dont even like .We were hanging with them because misery loves company and most times they would turn us on as long as we did the same. Reaching the breaking point in our addictive lives and realizing we gotta get out before its too late is something we should not share with the ones we use with . Can you hear them now , we are a team , I cant do this without you ,I will die out here you cant leave me. What we have to realize is unless you want die with them you gotta turn your back and walk away and never look back . They will do everything they can to manipulate and keep you trapped . The Psalm is so right on with this and you will experience this in all areas of life . Some people become consumed with envy and jealously ,when that is not dealt with it becomes hate and that can be very dangerous too yourself and others.Never be the reason for someones relapse and always wish the best for people because in the long run we reap what we sow or what goes around comes around .
James 3 ,14- 15 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.
