Stop being a Stubborn Mule and Let Go let God !

May 31 , 2019 TRANSFORMATION THROUGH SPIRITUAL TRUTH FROM SCRIPTURE AND THE TWELVE STEPS TODAY STEP 3
\

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


Matthew 11 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”


Life begins at Step 3 ! Letting God take control will bring peace in the storms of life. He knows the beginning to the end and he knows whats best for your life. Quit trying to go it alone and figure you have it all figured out because you don't.

Lifted up in Mercy - June 2019 Newsletter

Lifted up in Mercy
     
"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
Revelation 21:4


I am no stranger to the hardships of grief and loss. This is the story of how God met me in my pain, led me out of shame and into the fullness of joy in Him.
I was born in New Hampshire and grew up near the White Mountains. My parents were both believers, but divorced when I was just seven years old. From then until I left home at eighteen I would split time between two households, one week at my mother's, one week at my father's. I was the youngest, and at times I felt lost in the shuffle, and overlooked. Consequently I had freedom to do pretty much whatever I liked, and began to party.
I was in my early twenties when I got pregnant. I was young, and had been taught from an early age the importance of making a living and having a career. Because I had been helping to raise my niece over the past several years I also understood the kind of hard work it took to raise a child. I wasn't
ready to be a mother and I had been deceived by what our society deems acceptable. It was a hard decision, but I chose to end the pregnancy.

We are only as sick as our secrets !

May 30 , 2019 TRANSFORMATION THROUGH SPIRITUAL TRUTH FROM SCRIPTURE AND THE TWELVE STEPS TODAY STEP 4


Step 4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.


Psalm 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.


If you have a heart and head full of junk your life will be cluttered. The good God wants to put into your heart and head wont fit. This is why Step four is so important ! That junk your full of is impacting your life and it could be the number one reason you self medicate. If we recognize and expose the stuff that keeps us awake at night it will lose its power over you. Freeing you to live a life of peace and joy! Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
