Thank the Lord for this day
Same here. Faith is a lot easier when one is sober…
And sobriety is a lot easier when faith is whole!
Yeah. So many of my actions for so many years were a hypocrisy. I guess not drinking gives me more credibility in that regard…
Christian here! Born again on July 21st, 2002. Struggled with alcohol my entire life and know exactly what you mean and how you feel about being the hypocrite and living a double life. Even though I loved God, I would still give into my temptation and get lit. I finally started going to AA again, have a sponsor and attending meetings everyday. It feels much better to live each day and sit in church on Sunday and not feel defeated and guilty. I know God loves me and forgives me but it still is a miserable place to be. (Caving to your flesh, then repenting, then doing it all over again…thousands of times) so glad i am off that rollercoaster!
Yep! Haven’t been doing the greatest job acting like it, though. But God is patient, and I’m thankful for that.
Ph 4 13. I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength.
Yours is a great on also.
It’s a great Christian website. I think you might like it.
I’m Li, going on 13 days clean off meth. Each and everyday counts. A prayer at night and during the day has helped me a lot.
May God bless you with more and more sober days to look forward to.
I’m a Christian. Believe that the Bible is God inspired and true.
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into diverse temptations, knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience.
But let patience have it’s perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
Idk. It’s as simple and complex as that. I think most of the problems we have with religion are linguistic in nature and that’s not the higher power’s problem, but mine. I am a searcher though and find great wisdom in the bible and great peace/strength in my spiritual walk. As a science based person I like to give science the “hows” and the higher power the “whys.” I go to church not out of obligation or habit, but as a student and there I find a resource where I can volunteer to help, the measure of a true human (in Christ) and a sense of closeness to that intangible thing that is both myself and something far greater than everything. I pray and meditate to separate my wanting mind/body from my true self and focus for insight into my flaws through the higher power. Idk if I’m a Christian, but perhaps over time I might be able to live more Christ like and through that find wholeness. Currently reading my way through Hebrews before bed each night. I’ve always been a huge fan of Paul’s works.
A devout christian here. There are several threads specific to this same topic if you search for them. Welcome to TS @PS91!
Im christian too.but I beliv strong this
“The kingdom of God inside you and around you”
Which is so true.
Haven’t been to a church since ages bc the pastors are so so so boring.
But by accident I found out that in my town is an international church. I watched some of their older preaches online and wow, never seen something like this in Germany before. I really like their kind of worshipping.
They have smaller groups where you can get to know each other and they do a lot for the community. I may give this a try.
I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.
For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. Romans 7:18 NIV
Saw this on a shirt while building w the church the other day and it spoke deeply to me.
2 Corinthians 1:4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort where with we ourselves are comforted of God.
Yes it is a great day that God has made. Psalms 118 v24. Every morning my family wakes up angry I remind them of this scripture. I am a Christian, I have been sober for 18 days It feels good to please God. Colossians 1 9-12
