How’s Your Footing?

How’s your footing?..


Sometimes we find ourselves on rocky, cluttered, or unstable paths as we try to walk. 


When we encounter these challenges, we usually become a bit more wary of each step and sometimes consider changing our path. 


We don’t necessarily need to change the goal or the destination, but…


Perhaps change the way we are trying to get there. 

We can and will encounter some unstable paths in our Spiritual walk as well. 


It’s in those times we can look to the Holy Spirit to guide us and set us on a clear and more stable path instead of trying to seek an easier, softer way on our own. 


How do you find firm footing spiritually?..


Check your experience… 


“Established on such a footing we became less and less interested in ourselves, our little plans and designs.” Big Book pg 63 


Lord, let us look to You to establish our footing when we find ourselves on shaky ground, AMEN. 


“You cleared the ground under me so my footing was firm.” 2 Samuel 22:37 


Have a blessed day y’all!

How is my prayer life?

Am I praying enough? Am I praying ”the right way”? Am I praying for what I want, or for what I actually need? For me, I used to pray ”scripted” prayers. I didn’t really pray from my heart. Today, I try to have an ongoing conversation with God all day long. For me, I feel more connected to the presence of the Holy Spirit when I just ”talk” to God. For me, it feels more relational. That relationship than helps me to have more meaningful relationships with the people in my life, and with those I come across each day!

It’s an Inside Job!

As long as we do OUR part willingly….


People who are living with grace, joy, and peace have that happy glow about them. 


What I have learned is that they get this glow from the happiness that exists inside of them. 


It’s not from winning the lottery or being a millionaire, or even having those material things that we feel at times we just have to have. 


Yes, those things bring a different kind of happiness. 


It’s from knowing that, no matter what, they are covered, protected, and blessed by God. 


His Holy Spirit lives in each of us and that is how He is able to bless us abundantly. 


Our part is to merely seek and do His will on a daily basis. In living our faith in a way that others can see, we are allowing God to work through us to help others. 


Are you doing your part?… 


Check your experience. … . 


“We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.” Big Book pg 83 


Lord, thank You for the abundance of blessings in our lives. Please continue to let our hearts see that happiness comes from the Holy Spirit living in each of us, AMEN. 


“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8

What lil’ “g” gods do you worship?

Foreign gods of today…


What do you worship? 


Believe it or not, some folks blindly serve another god in the form of money, work, or material possession. 


Heck, some of us might even worship another human; like a movie star, or athlete, or even obsess on a personal relationship. 


Now don’t get me wrong, it’s great to have nice things and healthy personal relationships, but are we allowing those things and persons to become our gods? 


Do we spend a large amount of time focusing our thoughts, energies, and efforts attempting to please or serve them? 


I am a firm believer in the spiritual principle that your heart exists where your thoughts reside…


Check your experience…


“God either is or He isn’t. What was our choice to be?” Big Book pg. 53


Lord, let us focus our thoughts on Your will and not fall into false worship of the people, places, and things around us, AMEN. 


 “The Lord alone led him; no foreign god was with him.” Deuteronomy 32:12

A crowd level view of hands raised from the spectating crowd interspersed by colorful spotlights and a smokey atmosphere

It’s Just a Moment in Time

If you are going through hell…keep on going… 


Back in Sacramento, years ago, ol’ Dick B. used to say in the AA meetings,..

 “Don’t turn a bad moment into a bad day.” 


I have held onto that thought over the years and found that when I am in times of stress or struggle, this thought gets me through it. 


While some situations last longer than a moment, 


I have learned that I am not facing it alone and that when I turn my troubles and fears over to the Lord, not only does my day go better, but also, the situation usually resolves itself and leaves me in a better place as a result. 

Are you allowing bad moments to become bad days? … 


Check your experience….


“In this book, you read again and again that faith did for us what we could not do for ourselves.” Big Book pgs 70-71 


Lord, what times of uncertainty, stress, or struggle come, remind my heart that You are with me and I can turn it over to Your care and not let it ruin my whole day, AMEN. 


“I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine.” 1 Peter 1:6-7 


Have a blessed day Y’all! 

What if you had a person who coached and mentored you in building a better life?

Power – Aid

Power Aid… 


Power is the thing that we all crave and seek in one another. 


The problem is our minds get twisted by the illusions of the material world and lead us to seek the wrong type of power. 


We have the willpower that is part of our human makeup. 


It will never go away, but we can learn to harness our willpower and align it with a Power greater than ourselves. 


Hopefully, we have learned that the best Power to align our will with is the power of God, and not some worldly-based perceived power in another person, place, or thing? 

What is your power source?..


Check your experience. …. 


“We had to find a power by which we could live, and it had to be a Power greater than ourselves.” Big Book pg 45 


Lord, thank You for our free will and the blessing and promise from Your word of the grace, abundance, and eternal life we gain from aligning our will with Yours, AMEN. 


 “…not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts” Zechariah 4:6

A True Source of Power

Using the correct power source … 


Human beings are amazing creatures. 


When we want something we usually and naturally use our own power to provide the correct effort to gain it. 


On occasion when that fails, we apply more of our own power through effort and self-will to make it happen. 


Sometimes it does and sometimes it does not happen. 

Over the years I have learned by experience that the problem is not our lack of power. 


The problem is our lack of using the right Power source to make sure we are seeking the correct thing for us. 


Just because it’s new and shiny does not necessarily mean we have to have it right now. 

Just because the guy on TV tells us we need it to make our lives better does not mean that it’s the truth. 


Tap into the power of God and watch a new world of possibility, abundance, and grace open up for you! ..


Check your experience. … 


“But where and how were we to find this Power?” Big Book pg 45 


Lord let Your power lead, guide, and direct our thoughts, will, actions, and words, AMEN. 


“With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine.” Ephesians 3:20

“F” Words!

Work is one of them 4 letter words…..


Work seems to be a heavy word. 


There are things in life we must do that we don’t necessarily enjoy that require work. 


From simple things like laundry to complex things like car maintenance (well… it’s very complex for me!) the work required may not be enjoyable but we know it’s needed. 


On the other hand, each of us possess talents and skills that we enjoy and because of our passions for them, it doesn’t feel like work. 


What is your passion or talent that you gain enjoyment and satisfaction from doing? 


These are just a part of the many gifts God has given us. …


Check your experience…. 


“It works, if we have the proper attitude and work at it.” Big Book pg 86 


Lord let our hearts be reminded that while most work is necessary, we do have talents and gifts that bring us pleasure in some of our work, AMEN. 


Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:37-38

Got Faith?

Got faith?..


Except for electricians and engineers, can we absolutely and completely explain why the light comes on when we touch the switch? 


We have faith from our experience that it will. 


 The same thing with starting our computers and cars, we can’t entirely explain it but we have faith from our experience that it will work. 


Now, what about God? 


I can’t speak for you but through my life experiences and His grace and Word, I know my faith is based on a real and loving God. 


How about you?..


Check your experience…


“We finally saw that faith in some kind of God was a part of our make-up, just as much as the feeling we have for a friend.” Big Book pg. 55


Lord, let us grow our faith through daily contact with You through prayer and Your Word, AMEN. 


“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see…” Hebrews 11:1
