4th Step to ladder of success
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 04 August 2017

Here we are in another mind set as we are learning the power of making decisions to change our behavior and attitude about what is going on in our lives that affect us and others. We see our problem and admit our weaknesses as the number one concern and then we see the power of empowerment to become restored as God forgives us and gives us a new heart, so our motivation is thinking of self and others who love us and want the best for us. This happens because I make a decision to turn every desire over to the Lord and he begins to mold me and make me into His image. I know I am not finished yet, so am taking the fourth step which in on going becoming like my creator God.
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Matthew 7:3-5 Jesus said, "Why worry about a speck in the eye of a brother when you have a board in your own? First get rid of the board then you can see clearly enough to help your brother." This is a story we do not want to accept, for we like to see other people’s problems as greater than our own, until we take an inventory and see reality of who we really are. Weak and helpless in ourselves and want the speck removed that is cause for lack of seeing clearly what is going on. So, we set down and begin to think about our life story. We see that honesty is the key that breaks denial of knowing the truth for we all need help. John 8:32 "And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free."
 
Behaviors change as well as Attitudes-Everything that was wrong begins to change for our behavior and attitude is what God created it to be, to become like our creator.
Healthy-We know longer have to have what we were addicted to but are healthy and feeling good about what is happening.
Generosity-We are always wanting to help others and are willing to give of time and money to make sure life gets better and not worse.
Work/Career-We have a desire now to become responsible and go to work at making sure we stay away from addictions that rob us of peace and goodwill, so become busy in the occupations we are in, not being idle like we were but have an objective now to provide for self and others.
Helping Others-Your seeing thing you never saw before for people are hurting and now you’re seeing clearly how you might bless other rather than be a burden on other. So you are no longer bitter about what others are doing but seeing what you can do to better life for self and others.
Being Responsible-Your seeing who you are want what you can do to be more responsible, for now you have a purpose that is godly not evil.
Being Compassionate-Your total being is one that loves who he is and what he is doing so can’t wait to bless rather than condemn. Your seeing faith, hope and love getting stronger to where you’re an ambassador for Gods kingdom and not the enemies.
Communicating with Others-You have a burning desire now to tell others about the experience your having now that you free of the Load of addictions sins.
Admitting Mistakes-This is the hall mark of my life now knowing I am weak and need help in still accepting I am not perfect but working at it. Conviction is now keeping me in tune with God who I am now trusting to give me power to continue seeking His will and not mine.
Asking for Help-So now help is seen as a blessing for it is as I get help from God I am able to stay free of the lust and temptations to sin and fall back, rather than going on.
Supportive of Family/Friends-Now I see the need for helping and supporting my family and friends, which is turning me on to making me feel good about what I am.

3rd Step on Ladder of Success
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 28 July 2017

The 3rd Step to ladder of success is making sure of our decision to follow and accept the Lord as our savior, as we see the need for changing our wills to Gods will, realizing we have problems that can’t be solved by Doctors or psychologist working with mental health.  It is one thing to admit we have an addiction to sin and another to reach out to the word of God to find the alternative to sin is holiness without which we will never see the Lords fullness. So here we have accepted the fact we are sinners and God loves sinners as they cry out for repentance and mercy and God is then able to restore us to the person He wants us to be as Ambassadors for Him. So here we are at the third step, so we can accept the reality of our imaginations   vividness. It is our creator that wantsto help us become more like Him in every area of our lives.
 
3. We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God. Jesus said in John 14:6 "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man gets to the father except through me." This is a truth that has remained the same since the very beginning of time. Truth does not change and give us many promises that when accepted and applied, change our behavior and attitude about who God is and able to do in our lives.
When we rely on God we begin to trust others and ourselves. It is God that brings satisfaction of knowing the truth of His word.
We give Him then our past, our future, our will, our body, soul & spirit. That is fifteen senses. 5 in the body, soul and spirit and it is then that the spirit with in us takes the responsibility to walk in the truth. We all have faith-hope-reverence, worship and prayers to offer to God. Then. Our souls soar with the presence of God as our imagination-reason-conscience, memory and affection are all centered around the Lord.
As thigs imposable are now possible as we abide in the Lord all things are possible.
I can't
God can
I'll let Him
Proverbs 3:5 & 6
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own
understanding; In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths." To know that you know the truth brings an attitude and behavior that understands, without God we can do absolutely nothing right and wholesome.
 
We Turn over Good to Bad
 
Worries-We are all surround by worries all the time that can make one depressed with a feeling of hopelessness.
Faults-It is so easy to accept faults without being faulty; always saying I’m sorry just out of habit.
Habits-Sin when done becomes a habit and we keep on doing what is not ok thinking it is ok!
Control-Can’t turn loose of others and always wanting or expecting more than what can be done, like a perfectionist.
Anger-To be angry and sin not, is a strong force that keeps one on track when out of control damages is done to self and others
Hurts-are not able to be seen and we keep on hurting ourselves and those we love.
Disappointment-we are seeing our world controlled by people that we are very disappointed with. Disappointments lead one to depression and depression is so common to day.

Step 2 in the 12 Step Ladder of Success
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Sunday, 23 July 2017

We are looking at the Twelve Step ladder to success over addictions that cripple us preventing holiness and purity God wants to create in us as we abide in Him. Last week we look at admitting we have a problem and how to address it now this week we are going to look at step 2 as everyone has a need to be restored to sanity, so we came become what God created us to become.
 
2. We came to believe that God could restore us to sanity.
The insanity is that we continue the same behavior and expect different results.
2 Peter 2: 22 Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit, and a sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud. What  a story of mans condition when we are left to our own way. For the heart of man is sinful and without the help of the Lord, we have no hope of becoming what God wants us to be and that is like Him.
 
Proverbs 23:7 As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. This again needs to be understood so we keep abiding in the vine as John 15 relates to us, then God helps us become restored so we work at what bothers us from being godly.
 
Self-Destructive Behaviors
 
Negative Self Talk- This is so easy for we are born having to be taught to talk and it is natural to be wrong and only God can correct the wrongs in all of us.
Physical Abuse of Self- this is so common in societies around the world as we see tattooing, as something that gives others a picture of who you are that  your proud of and when you're wanting to have them removed it is going to hurt.
Physical Abuse of Others-Look at the terror that is going on around the world. People enjoy hurting others and the Schools have to be on the lookout for bullies.
Verbal Abuse of Others-Just in the United States of America we are seeing Republican and Democrats abusing one another. Verbal abuse is rampant around the world and who cares. It is even happening in the religious circles to where it is doing a good job of destroying the truth of being able to love one another. The phase “Black lives Matter” is hurtful for all lives matter.
Drugs/Alcohol- We are living at a time when it is ok even through Drug is going to kill you, or Alcohol is going to separate you from those you love the most.
Suicidal Thoughts-Here in White Swan on the Yakama Indian Reservation Suicide is way to common. I spent time on Suicide watch while at Green Hill a Reformatory in Chehalis, WA when I worked on Security. We had to be as close at all times; a hands length away, to prevent someone from suicide. Yes, we have class on how to prevent it and yet people commit themselves to end life.
Isolation-Even when you’re around lots of people some feel like they are locked in and can’t escape. Isolation is like living on an Island all by yourself 
Destructive Relationships-We see this in marriage around the world and where prosperity is abundant destructive Behavior is common. People have a hard time being nice and we see it around the world  with ISIS and some other religions.             Gambling-Gambling is a sport and people are always ready to make a fast dollar. We have more casinos going in as people are addicted to the thrill of losing money. We now have Addiction programs to control it fascinations 

Eating Disorders-This is so common for obesity is rampant and people love to try and eat their troubles away and do not get the exercise needed to burn the weight off.
