Desire without knowledge is not good—how much more will hasty feet miss the way! (Proverb 19:2, 2011, NIV).
I am 62 years old. Quite often, I wondered about my youth–how things could have been.
Back then, I would get excited about any new skills that I had developed. Public speaking was one.
I remembered a time when a pastor asked me to speak to his church.
At the end of the talk, people came to the altar seeking peace. Because of that one incident, I thought about being a pastor.
At the time, I was on and off pornography. Now, I believe that I did well at the church because I needed peace.
Now, I am grateful that nothing came of that type of work.
Having a sexual addiction, I fear what would have happened to the people I was to serve.
Now, I am retired; or, as my therapist calls it, “Re-fired!” The 2014 year has been the best one of my life.
Sobriety has helped me to see clearly.
Now, my feelings from gratitude are profound.
No-nonsense advice: Get Sober.
YOU ARE WORTH IT!
