First real steps in walking the walk

I had spent a few weeks now without anything, that is any alcohol. I understood exactly who my Lord and Saviour was. Jesus Christ died to set me free from the chains that bound me up for years.

I knew that I had to get the basics right so I prayed every day, read scripture every day and kept away from alcohol. As long as I did these things I knew that Jesus would walk with me.

I had feelings that I never recognised as I had spent most of the last years drunk. I had to learn to hand these over to Jesus and not pick them back up. Everyday seemed long but I knew deep down I belonged to Jesus and that someday I could walk fully in His ways.

I was told about an AA group that was Christian, they spoke openly about Jesus and handing our life over to Him. I ended up with a sponsor called Rab who was a Spirit Filled Christian. he helped me walk the walk.

I decided to leave AA and just go to Church. Most people in the Christian AA meeting went to the same Church as me, I just never knew it, I am still in touch with some of these people today.

I told AA I wasn’t going back to there meetings, they kept phoning me. I was told that if I never kept going to AA I would never keep off Alcohol.

I have been 25 years sober not because of AA but because of my relationship with Jesus Christ. He was the God of my understanding.

After a few months of sobriety I met a man called Paul who was a strong Christian. he opened up the door for me to fully understand the Love of Jesus.

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.
