Just seeing how all the group members are growing. Physically and Spiritually. A good work out, good meal, scripture and prayer, sleep and repeat!
All the time God is good. Can't believe that I just found this group. This is awesome! Here is a little bit about myself. I've been sober for almost 9yrs. It's by the grace of God that I am able to be here typing this today and not in prison serving 85% of a 17 year sentence. There was a time when I was heavy into meth. Crazy thing about it is that in the beginning we just used it as a pre work out. Over time it got out of control to the point I was counterfeiting checks to support my habit and life style. I ended up being charged with 6 felony cases and over 17 felony counts. While sitting in county jail for 3 months I realized that I could not fight this alone any longer. I surrendered to the Lord and here I am today. God is who gave me a second chance and didn't allow me to go to prison and that's a fact. Glad to be a part of this group!!!!
That is exactly what God had to have happen to me to get me to surrender. I got on my knees in that cell and gave my will over to the care of God. Unlike all the previous time when I would try to bargain (imagine trying to bargain with God) I would say if you let me out I'll follow you. But this time I didn't care if I was out I wanted spiritual freedom. He didn't open the doors to the cell like he did with Peter but I felt the chains of addiction fall off. If you view my pics my tattoo says "my chains are gone I've been set free". Best version of amazing Grace song. My life has been nothing but blessings since 2009. I am expecting a new baby girl April 1st and I need to raise her right and not like this secular humanism world way. Jesus is one step recovery. I don't knock the 12 steps they are good for building spiritual principle if you wasn't raised that way but Jesus is the only one who can break the chains. I love when they say it's a disease because that means it's definitely something our saviour can heal. Glad to have you in the group!
All the time.
Jesus is the reason for the season and I wanted to wish all of you an amazing CHRISTMAS!!!
May God Bless you with love, peace and happiness and may he place a hedge of protection over all your families.
Be blessed in Christ.
Amazing brother! AMEN!
I am so glad to see 46 members here. Jesus is alive
