Human Trafficking…

It actually amazes me that people still believe human/sex trafficking doesn’t exist! It is REAL folks and it not just the female gender that gets kidnapped. There are plenty of young boys being kidnapped as well. And it IS happening closer to you than you think.

Yes Lord, hear our prayers…please!!!

Human trafficking…
is so real today…
but many people don’t realize…
for their lives aren’t affected this way.
They have not had a loss…
cause their child has not been taken…
but many are suffering daily…
so let us not be mistaken.
Human trafficking is a problem…

The Alphabet Post Challenge ~ Wow!

I am totally in awe of how well my challenge has been accepted! I am humbled and honored. Honestly, I truly felt as if no one would tackle it. And I knew, if someone did, no one would be crazy like I was to do a post for each letter...but each one of you took… Continue reading The Alphabet Post Challenge ~ Wow!

Step 1: We admitted we were powerless and our lives had become unmanageable

Realize my life had become unmanageable…yep! I remember that feeling, as well as the vicious cycle of saying I quit, look again, shame, guilt, feeling unloved and unworthy and then fall again and repeat.

You can’t do it on your own! Reach out! Get help! Find someone to be accountable to! A real relationship with God is the only way I found freedom!

Beauty from Ashes.

As I went through this step, it’s easy to forget how crazy life was in addiction when your out of it, but it was good for me to reflect on it.  One of the questions that stood out to me was 6 months before you became sober how did you lie about, hide or minimized your addiction. I used to lie a lot to get what I felt I needed. I would manipulate and I would hide the fact I was acting out by getting around the filters on my computer.  When one is caught in addiction you will do anything to get your next high and who cares about anyone else. Addiction causes you to do things that you would not do when sober.

A Non-Conforming Light

Joe, the creator of The Light Of The World Award, speaks very loudly in this devotional. The history behind this lighthouse is cool but his points on how it relates to our walk with God are spot on!

Lighthouse Devotions by JR

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. -The Apostle Paul (Romans 12:2)

In one of my previous/favorite devotions titled A Conforming Light,” I was inspired by the Fastnet Rock Lighthouse to reiterate what the Apostle Paul taught the believers in Rome, Corinth, and Ephesus; He reminded them, and us, that the church is called to conform to the person/character of our Savior, Jesus Christ. In this devotion, it was the Sullivan Island Lighthouse a.k.a. the Charleston Light (pictured above) that inspired me to remind us that we are NOT to conform to the ways of this world. 

The Charleston Light was built in 1960 on Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina. It measures 140 feet tall and is constructed of steel with an aluminum…
