What is the PINK ELEPHANT doing in your Living room??

Why is it so hard to ACKNOWLEDGE the pink elephant in the room?

The dynamics at home are different for everyone but really the toxic problem that is destroying the lives and relationships with those we love is the most difficult to confront. Why are we so afraid to step up and say, " HEY!" Why are we afraid to take the problem head on and set some boundaries to protect our peace, our happiness and our security? Isn't the potential loss from the upset offender less than what we are experiencing now? Yes, like the story of Jonah and the Whale, there was one person's direct disobedience to God that had circumstances that were harming everyone on the ship! All the innocent ones were suffering because Jonah was running from God's WILL! So guess what they did? They threw Jonah overboard to get some peace and sanity back! Guess what? NOW Jonah was God's problem (not theirs!) and God loved Jonah so much he saved his life as a whale came and swallowed him up and spit him out to safety once the misery (in the belly of the whale) did it's magic and led Jonah to repent! Then Jonah obeyed and served God and good things happened after that!

Sometimes we gotta just let go, NOT WATCH, and let GOD deal with some people before they are gonna get it. Pain, loss and sorrow will lead men to repent, not our constant rescuing, fixing, saving, covering up and certainly NOT us pretending the problem is not real! The sooner we confront the sooner a healing can happen, by the grace of GOD! Sometimes, for the one going down, they are in so much DENIAL about an issue they won't comprehend the truth until something BAD happens. That's the only way some people are gonna learn. So step away and let some miracles happen while you hide and pray! Just don't forget, TO PRAY!

Health Recovery is the only way up!

No matter how hard we try to deny it, the fruit is plain to everyone but us sometimes.  The longer we abuse what God has given the sooner our home will not be habitable. 
Sooner or later we will have to move out if we are not being a good steward of our house!  So also, should we abuse our body for years and years it will not last.  With God there is always HOPE!  With help we can get things back in order and getting back on track will breathe new life in what seemed like a hopeless scenario.  In 12 Steps we find help, hope and healing with the comfort of others who are just like us!  With some support we can get this thing trimmed back and some windows replaced and new construction repairs and it will again be filled with warmth and laughter welcoming those who need some restoration too!! Nobody would have thought it possible but MIRACLES happen in 12-Step recovery.  
Say this, "I WANNA LIVE!"       Keep coming back!

God has always set before us Life and Death, Health and Healing and He says "Choose LIFE!"

Do you ever feel like LIFE is "Circling the Drain?"

DO you ever feel like; " My life is circling the drain!?!"
Take a new VIEW!   See life from a different perspective!  We cannot keep doing the same thing and expect a different result!  We will keep getting the same thing if we keep doing what we have always done.    What are the people saying about me?  Ask your HIGHER POWER for guidance and direction.  Be willing to surrender to the process of renewal.  With GOD, ALL things are possible!  I can turn to HIM to be my help in time of trouble a little faster than I used too.  If it's NOT working, then it's something I am doing wrong!!  

Let HIS light shine on the dark secret places you have not yet surrendered and then hold on to your hat!  Its going to rock and you will kick yourself for not surrendering the secret thing far sooner!  Everything is going to be all right!  YOU are going to make it!  One step at a time, work the steps!  It works, if you work it!  Love never fails!

The 8 recovery principles that will work in any defect of character issue!

Study the 12 STEPS and FIND a meeting! We can't do this alone!

•Step 1 - We admitted we were powerless over our addiction (OR COMPULSIONS) - that our lives had become unmanageable

•Step 2 - Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity

•Step 3 - Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God

•Step 4 - Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves

•Step 5 - Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs

•Step 6 - Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character

•Step 7 - Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings

•Step 8 - Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all

•Step 9 - Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others

•Step 10 - Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it

•Step 11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out

•Step 12 - Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other folks like "US", and to practice these principles in all our affairs
