I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.
( Roman 7:18)
Realized I am not God. I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.
( 8 principles based on the beatitudes by Pastor Rick Warren )
We Admitted that we were powerless over our gambling, that our lives had become unmanageable.”

Principle 1 Prayer
Dear GOD, Your Word tells me that I cannot heal my hurts, hang ups and habits by just saying that they are not there.
Help me! Parts of my life, or all of my life, is out of control.
I now know that I cannot “fix” myself.it seems the harder I try to do the right thing the more I struggle.
Lord, I want to step out of my denial into the truth.
I pray for you to show me the way. In Your Son’s name I pray, AMEN.
