April 9.2018 Twelve Stepping With Spiritual Support From Scripture
Psalm 119 v 73 -You made me ! You created me ! now give me sense to follow your commands.
(GODS BIG BOOK)
STEP 3 - Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as revealed in the Bible
The words that ring in my ears the most are , Why is he so thick.Words my father-in-Law spoke to my Wife a few years back.The truth is we are all a little thick when it comes to living life.Addiction is a prime example of being thick.Destroying our bodies with poison and chasing away everyone who really loves us.Losing our ability to keep our jobs unable to support ourselves losing our homes and living under bridges or in the back of a van down by the river.Living right and being sober is the sensible way of spending our time here,but our human nature wants the opposite.We are prideful and stubborn and determined follow after our pleasure seeking ways.Gods Big Book calls it the lusts of the Flesh.Being thick could be Gods Blessing in disguise .Being thick and making mistakes dosen't make us bad people ,so don't let others put that label on you making life even more difficult. It makes us people who lack the sense to do the right thing.Making mistakes and learning from them is what God is teaching us to do and that is the blessing. Gods blessing is designed to develop our trust in Him. It also is developing our character , into His design and purpose He has destined for our lives. Life will get better if we believe ,pray ,and trust GOD AND TRUST THE PROCESS!
Proverbs 10:23-25 Doing wrong is like play to a fool, but a man of understanding has wisdom. What the sinful man is afraid of will come upon him, and what is wanted by the man who is right with God will be given to him. When the storm passes, the sinful man is no more, but the man who is right with God has a place to stand forever.
