Random Praise –

I don’t know about you, but I’M STAYING IN GOD’S WILL!!  I will not compromise His word, bow down or embrace anything that goes against His standards.  So many of you are falling PREY to the enemy trying to get a QUICK RIDE TO THE TOP!  I hear the Lord say, “IT’S my way, or NO WAY!”  Some of you are about to get an EVICTION NOTICE from the Holy Ghost and are about to be escorted out from your KINGDOM PLACE.

I don’t know who this is for but, I hear the Lord say, “I have sent warning after warning for you to DETACH, but you keep ignoring my voice!”  God says you may see the BENEFITS of the connections,  but you will NEVER inherit THE PROMISE, because of DISOBEDIENCE!!!”

Friend Radom –

The word friend means a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard. Another definition is a person who gives assistance, someone who wants things in the other person’s best interest to occur.

Friendship involves listening, sharing, and showing understanding for the other’s likes and dislikes. Friendship takes time, but it makes any relationship. “Therefore walk in the way of the good, and keep to the paths of the just. ” Proverbs 2:20…. We all want friends, for indeed it is a basic human need to want to be with other people…. They are a necessary part of life – In the world in which we live in…there are positive and negative friends we can choose from AND learn from.

Another Biblical example is Jonathan and David. They loved each other’s company and cared immensely for one another. Too many people are fair-weather friends. They are there until a personal difficulty arises. A true friend is with you in good times and hard times. This is the type of relationship that Jonathan and David enjoyed.

” And when he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.” I Samuel 18:1 ” Now Jonathan caused David to vow, because he loved him; for he loved him as he loved his own soul. ” I Samuel 20:17

Appreciate the IMPORTANT people in your life – that’s all

Family Love Random –

We always get things from people without knowing it. Many will deny this but unconsciously we all do. If we love someone for who they are, you may feel a warm glow for just being around them. You love to make them feel good as you believe that they have a perfect personalities etc. You love that feeling so you are there with them. YOU are getting something out of it.  If you love someone for what they give you then you love them for what they give.  However I think everyone agree that first one is or could be more of a substantial relationship.

If I only loved others for what they gave me instead of for who they are then I would have stopped loving loads of people in my life by now, and that’s not the case. They should be loved for who they are but also for how they are with you too. As you get older you don’t waste your time as much on selfish people.

It is hurtful to continue to love that which hurts you so although many continue to love those that are bad for them, I think maturity changes your view and makes you more discriminating with your love.

Family is the toughest one, that you want to love them, but some are just bad, and prove it to you over and over again. That’s just almost too painful when it happens and you just wish you never had any feelings for them at all, but you do.

THAT IS WHERE CHRIST comes into play……… – I can do ALL things through Christ –

Addiction –

I never thought in a million years that I would become a Drug and Alcohol Case Manager – It is a field that you MUST care whole heartedly about the people in addiction. If not – it will NOT work for you and it will surely hinder the people that you are supposed to be helping in the long run!

Although many people struggle with addiction in their lives, not all of them are able to overcome it. Your chances of being successful in becoming healthy and making a full recovery depend on many things, including how driven you are to succeed and live a healthier and better life overall. Having support is definitely one of the most important things that can either make or break a person when it comes to trying to beat addiction. Those who have family and friends that support them through their initial recovery period tend to do much better than those who do not have anyone to be there for them.  I ALWAYS tell my them that in order to avoid a relapse you will want to let everyone who you are close to know about what you are going through so they will be able to help you in any way possible.

Addiction can be tough, which is why you will need to have an action plan that details exactly how you are going to go about overcoming your problems. If you are addicted to drugs for example, detox will not be enough to free you of the stranglehold that they have on you. There is definitely a physical aspect to addiction, but a lot of it is also psychological. Be sure to come up with multiple ways to stay healthy, because it really is a day-to-day process. There is no single miracle cure that will be able to help you overcome your addiction overnight.

Drug courts and mentors and case managers like myself really try our best to help addicts / alcoholics succeed in recovery. However, there are two critical pieces to unraveling the cycles of addiction and therefore to preventing recidivism. Why? Because addiction is a chronic, but treatable, brain disease.

If addiction is left untreated (and treatment is far more complicated than just stopping drinking or using the substance), the individual with the disease is very likely to relapse after their release from jail, and very likely their relapse will lead to more criminal behavior. Not only that, but treatment of this brain disease requires long-term continuing care to insure the necessary re-wiring (healthy brain changes) and trigger prevention tools are in place that will allow an individual to succeed in their recovery.

Many crimes are committed by addicts/alcoholics because of the characteristics of the disease of addiction, namely: cravings, loss of control, tolerance and physical dependence. It is the “insanity” of the brain disease of addiction that causes them to do bad and/or illegal things, like stealing and what this “insanity “is about).

Drug courts provides an alternative to jail or prison time by going after the root of the person’s problem — the reason he/she committed the crime — their addiction (whether that be an addiction to drugs or alcohol). Drug court helps a person get and stay clean and sober and if that person succeeds in drug court, they avoid jail or prison time and a record. Last but not least, people who are involved in addiction need pray and help and it takes a great deal of services from the community, government agencies, support from family and friends to help KEEP THEM SOBER –

Marriage Talk


image

I have a great deal of friends who are happily AND unhappily married!!! However, we indeed have LASTING CONVERSATIONS and just talk for hours at a time – NO – I am not married but I used to be…….and knowing God, hearing God, knowing what you want and how things should be is a good START for any conversational piece…..

We have to stop asking of marriage what God never designed it to give — perfect happiness, conflict-free living, and idolatrous obsession.

Instead, we should be able to appreciate what God designed marriage to provide: partnership, spiritual intimacy and the ability to pursue God — together. So, what do you think is the most common misconception Christians have about marriage?
image

“Finding a ‘soul mate’ — someone who will complete us,” he says. “The problem with looking to another human to complete us is that, spiritually speaking, it’s idolatry. We are to find our fulfillment and purpose in God . . . and if we expect our spouse to be ‘God’ to us, he or she will fail every day. No person can live up to such expectations.”

Everyone has bad days, yells at his or her spouse, or is downright selfish. Despite these imperfections, God created the husband and wife to steer each other in His direction.

When your wife or husband forgives you . . . and accepts you, you SHOULD learn to receive God’s forgiveness and acceptance as well. In that moment, THEY ARE MODELING God , revealing God’s mercy and helping YOU to see with your own eyes a very real spiritual reality. That AGAPE love that Christ himself wants us to exhibit!

While it’s easy to see why God designed an other-centered union for a me-centered world, living that way is a challenge. So when bills pile up, communication breaks down and you’re just plain irritated with your husband or wife,  These reminders to help ease the tension:

  • God created marriage as a loyal partnership between one man and one woman.
  • Marriage is the firmest foundation for building a family.
  • God designed sexual expression to help married couples build intimacy.
  • Marriage mirrors God’s covenant relationship with His people.
