Preaching the Gospel, Preparing a People
It’s a tough road on either side we are traveling. Your “Nurture with Patience” describe perfectly how the sufferer so often doesn’t even know what they are feeling or what they need in many given moments and that the floodgates are always on call...
thank you Lewis. I know for me - if it affects my conscious then I have to do what is necessary. I have baking soda in my laundry supplies for my hard water and don't use it for baking (i'm not a baker either!) so it has no significance here or doesn't need to be thrown out. When I am truly in the spirituality of these days and this Feast, each day I take a small broken piece of matzo and place it on my tongue and breathe in all that it represents to me in that very moment. sometimes it brings me to tears, and it always fills me with God's Spirit. "There is a way that seems right to a man and that way does end in death."
Love it Robert!
You dun good
Mr Walker -
Thank you so much for this article and connection of the 12 Steps and God's Word and truth. I come to this article over and over and over, and also have been so blessed to share with many 12 steppers over the years!
The 12 Step way of life is so much more than physical sobriety or abstinence. It is such a powerful tool for daily self-examination, seeking God's courage and mercy, asking for God's cleansing and His wisdom, and for being in service to others.
As they say in recovery - Trust God. Clean House. Help Others.
May we all immerse ourselves wholeheartedly in our own housecleaning - daily.
You have so touched my heart in its deepest place. I thank you for your courage and service in sharing. May I be strengthened by your example of faith and perseverance in whatever trial is set before me.
Deuteronomy 31:6 The Message (MSG)
“Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you.”
brings such judgement, sometimes so blindly.
what's more important? the stuff? or the stuff I'm made of :)

yes. love does overcome bitterness. and it’s a daily job.
