A New Day Dawns

I had no idea how significant this day was going to be. At first it seemed just the same. OH no another day of this chaos. I had arranged to be picked up by Lynette to go to Church. I felt so ashamed and guilty that I never wanted to go.

I tried to go back to sleep.

I couldn’t.

Them a whisper in my mind, ‘get up go to church and tell them you are an alcoholic.’ I knew this still small voice was God. I went and got washed, dressed. My lift arrived.

I sat in the car.

Lynette asked ‘how are you today?’

I replied ‘I think I am an alcoholic.’ She replied ‘That’s great Ritchie (that was my name when I was drinking. That’s a story I have still to come to!!!). You should speak to Avril.’

I spoke to Avril who shouted ‘ Praise Jesus I have been praying for this day!!!! I’ve known for years. Try and not drink today and I will take you to a meeting tonight’.

I went to the AA meeting. I heard people telling others about the same pain I had. A slogan on the wall said ‘You need never drink again.’ I never did drink again.

AA taught me how to take a day at a time as well as supported me through the first few weeks. I am forever grateful that Avril took me there and Jesus had a plan in place when I screamed out for help.

The only problem was after a few weeks people from AA told me to leave the Church.

I loved Jesus and knew he had finally called me out of my Egypt. I would never leave Him. Not this time.

About cleavinghearts

I go to church in Troon Scotland. I want to see men from every nation rise up in Christ and be who they are called to be. I am interested in men getting together to praise and just do men's things. I also want to see women rise above their pain and turmoil so they are free to follow Jesus without the hindrances of their past.

  1. Yes I found the same Cleavinghearts with G.A, it was all about self but not so originally, The 12 Steps were written by a Christian Pastor but Bill came along and wanted to make it more people friendly so he deleted Jesus and replaced Him with a god of our own understanding.

    So yes you are so right Cleavinghearts, Jesus is the only way to overcome Addiction, it has been over 25 years since I was delivered by Jesus but I was tempted by Satan when walking passed a Hotel about 4 years after but I asked Jesus to help me keep walking and He did and I have no interest in gambling today.

    Christian Love Always – Anne.
