What does “broken” mean? Today, we discuss the sacrifice of “a broken heart and a contrite spirit”. I’ll also share a bit of my love of horses with you as we talk about the right way to break horses, and how that applies to breaking the cycle of addiction. So take a BREAK and visit us for a few minutes!
Ever feel like C.S. Lewis? “…go to Him (God) when your need is desperate, when all other help is vain, and what do you find? A door slammed in your face, and a sound of bolting and double bolting on the inside. After that, silence… There are no lights in the windows. It might be an EMPTY HOUSE. Was it ever inhabited? It seemed so once.”
Today, we’ll figure out how to fill our empty lives with the things that will allow us to forever banish our demons, and to fill our souls with joy and “…wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures.”
“If there’s no demon within, the demon outside can do us no harm.” –African Proverb
Christ taught that when unclean spirits return to the empty house, they bring even more pain and sorrow. How can we prevent this? Read on and see.
I’ve never really believed in ghosts or hauntings, but for a couple of decades, I experienced a “Haunting of the Empty House at midnight”. Join me as I share my journey out of the darkness of midnight and into the light of Christ.
So…is addiction a choice or a disease? My short answer is a resounding YES! 😉
I found this video an interesting and refreshing juxtaposition of science, psychology, and gospel insights. It may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but I consider it worth sharing as a post here.
Enjoy the show, and feel free to give YOUR opinion at the bottom of this post!
Although you and I think we are mere Muggles, we are of royal birth and have the power to exercise faith to produce miracles for ourselves and those around us! What miracle do you want? The miracle of overcoming addiction? The power is already within you…don’t overthink it, just ask God, knowing that he will give it to you.
This has been the story of my life.
We don’t have to be perfect to approach Christ for his help. Rather, we have to approach Christ NOW for the strength to become perfect.
