I so appreciated today's meditation, especially the proverb about alcohol. I have been a member of AA for over 20 years, and it was actually my pathway to deeper Christianity. I was definitely a Christian, even in the throes of my alcoholism--- one of my favorite things to do at night was curl up with the Bible, a bottle of wine and my cigarettes. ( I look back on that picture now and laugh! ) But of course, Christ's call is different upon everyone, and I am so thankful that even in the midst of my sin [drinking not a sin for everyone, but He definitely showed it was for me] Christ was there, reaching out to me, loving me, letting me learn more of Him and His ways. I am so thankful that this was my path, otherwise I might be such a Pharisee today! He has provided for me a beautiful life, complete with dear husband, precious children, and abiding faith; and without my besetting sins, I really think I may have fallen into a life of deeper unrepentant sin (pride) and not ever gotten to know the real Jesus. At any rate, though I don't comment often, I love the daily Bible blog and thank you for your continual ministry to us!

Celebrate Recovery is an amazing program for those who struggle, and we all struggle with something that can get in the way of our relationship with Christ. It has some roots in the 12 alstroemerias of AA but is based on the beatitudes and hence has a stronger Christian base. It helps people with hurts habits and hang ups of all kinds , including addictions, to find the healing and forgiveness that only God can provide.
