February 27 CHP 103 v 2,3 TWELVE STEPPING WITH STRENGTH FROM THE PSALMS
Bless the Lord ,O my soul , and forget not all His benefits : Who forgives all your iniquities,
WHO HEALS ALL YOUR DISEASES (GODS BIG BOOK)
STEP 5 Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs (AA BIG BOOK)
In order to have all your diseases healed there will be conditions we must meet in order to receive freedom from the disease of addiction. Bill W figured this one out and He created the twelve steps . Many argue saying this is not a spiritual thing but they are wrong it is a spiritual battle with self and without Gods cleansing and forgiveness you will remain trapped in addiction. In order to fix something in your life you first have to recognize their is a problem. Believing and admitting open the door to God and he begins to close the doors of pride and shame. The more you work on you the freer you will become ! No one else can forgive you and without that forgiveness you will remain bound up in shame and addiction. God made us to live a life of joy but along the pathway of this life stuff is gonna happen that will take away that natural joy and our spirits become sick. Pride will replace that natural joy and we become blinded and unable to find the joy we lost . Next time you are at a playground and you see the children running yelling and playing that is a natural God given joy because they have free spirits unburdened by the worlds troubles and trials . Now find the child who is not playing , you know the one sitting by themselves not playing sad staring into outer space. They have lost there joy and there hearts and spirits are sick due to the worlds trials and troubles.They need healing and so do we .
John 16:24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.

|TAKE ACTION: Help get the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act passed Monday with just one phone call!|
Thanks to your help and support, theComprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA) passed unanimously through the Judiciary Committee. Let’s make sure politics do not get in the way as this bill comes up for a Senate vote this Monday, February 29. We need you to call your senator!
Join us Monday for a national call-in dayto urge your senator to vote YES to CARA.
Feel free to use this sample phone script:
"CARA provides important tools for treatment and recovery in the fight against heroin and opiate addiction. It would provide funds for an evidence-based opioid and heroin treatment and intervention demonstration, authorize the creation of a national youth recovery initiative, and provide funds to non-profits in order to create communities of recovery. These are crucial steps to controlling this epidemic and would benefit every state in the nation, including [STATE]. Please have Senator/Representative XXXX vote for this important legislation.”
Plus, if you haven’t already, please help us reach our goal of 10,000 signatures to have CARA passed. Sign our petition to ensure that this legislation receives the attention and support that it deserves.

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ - Matthew 22:37 - 39 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew22:37-39&version=NIV
