Blessed Father, I have heard the command of Jesus to wait for the promise. I thank You for what has already been fulfilled in me. But my soul longs for the full possession, the fullness of the blessings of Christ. Teach me to wait on You. Teach me, each day, as I draw near to You, to wait for the Spirit. In the sacrifice of my own wisdom and my own will, may I learn to lie humbly before You so that Your Spirit may work with power. Teach me that as my life of self is laid before You day by day, the holy life will rise in power, and my worship will be in spirit and in truth. Amen.

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
