I find myself tongue-tied sometimes when I speak of Jesus. I understand, however, that to love Him is to share Him. And to love others is to want them to experience eternal salvation. I attend AA meetings on a fairly regular basis. I am sometimes frustrated by the “ban” on speaking about a specific higher power. I know what I believe, and I want to share it. I’ve been able to do this one-on-one, but I respect the boundaries of sharing Jesus in the meeting. I can only hope this practice is not angering my Lord and Savior. I read the following blog and wanted to share it with you. Enjoy. Let it motivate you. Let it make you think long and hard.

I am a Christian in recovery following four decades of active addiction. I have a B.S. in Psychology and an M.A. in Theological Studies from Colorado Christian University, and I will be pursuing an M.A. in Divinity at Denver Seminary in May 2021. My focus is on evangelism and apologetics, doctrinal studies, and working with individuals struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues. To me, there is no "higher power" than Jesus Christ, who broke the chain of addiction in my life. I will be seeking a position as a prison chaplain and/an associate or teaching pastor upon completing my MDiv. I am currently looking for a position at a drug and alcohol rehab, where I intend to work during the three-year master's program at Denver Seminary. I believe in the power in the Name of Jesus to break every chain. I believe counseling must include discipline, and discipling must include counseling. View all posts by The Accidental Poet
