TWELVE STEPPING WITH STRENGTH FROM SCRIPTURE
Psalm 38 - 4 My guilt overwhelms me--it is a burden too heavy to bear. (GODS BIG BOOK)
STEP 5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. (AA Big Book)
When your ready to be truly free of self !
Guilt is a poison along with regret and fear . These three
compadres will keep peace , love , and joy from entering your heart. Self medicating is only numbing them and they are not going anywhere . Step Five is essential and must be completed with honesty ! Their is no faking this one.We are only sick as our secrets!Guilt will steal your Life and put you in an early Grave !
1 John 1:9 God is faithful and reliable. If we confess our sins, he forgives them and cleanses us from everything we've done wrong.
