>B.C. "Life Verses"

>On my other blog, www.crossfocused.blogspot.com I’ve been writing this month each day from the appropriate chapter of Proverbs. This is a good discipline for me, if no one else.

Tonight I was getting a sneak peak at chapter 23, and came across what I’ve often referred to as my pre-salvation life verses.


To anyone who has struggled with alcohol and alcoholism (Yes, I am an alcoholic; the only drug that I was ever addicted to back in the day…I recognize some might pooh-pooh and say I need to ‘claim the victory’ of being a new creation and thus no longer in bondage to alcohol…yeah, right…I’m so paranoid I won’t take medicine with alcohol as an ingredient!)…

Anyway, Proverbs 23.29-35 is spot-on-descriptive of my life from about the age of 14 until I got saved at 26.

Thank You, Lord!
