If you Can’t See that you Have Guilt & Shame…then you will not overcome Guilt & Shame.
The hardest part about being a believer in Jesus with all the guilt trips religion passes on to the people is to accept myself just as God made me. Imperfect. If my life is manageable then I am at peace. But I will not be perfect as long as I am in the flesh. The closer I get to perfection the more false pride and judgement rear their ugly heads.

Update-Wow I called this one in 2020. Now in 2022 nearly December I have used up much of my prepper food and stuff. “Waste not the oil and the wine.” Perhaps I was not the only one whose small business has been crashed by 50% or more $$.
Why is it time to get our houses in order? And what does that mean anyway.

False Pride is One of my Dominate Temptations of that I confess.
If Staying Sober is what you need to learn today…do not read this article. I have many many other articles on how to stay sober. I have been sober since 2006. That’s 14 years or so.
