Only One Reason-Came to Believe Pg 97

Posted by Dayzed on October 24, 2015 at 11:40 AM

I believe we are all sober and alive for only one reason: God has a job for us to do. I have also come to believe that I must please God first, myself second, and everybody else third. When I can live and feel that way -- and it isn't all day every day -- things seem to work out. When I try to run the show, everything goes to hell.

I know most folks have a problem with putting themselves second in this equation, but truthfully... if we aren't physically, mentally, and spiritually fit, what use are we to anyone else? I must clean out my own backyard before I can even pretend to help another clean out his. I must have that experience under my belt.... that profound spiritual awakening... of the educational variety or those that take time... but I must have that spiritual awakening before I can help another. At least, that's what I believe. MDK
