In this edition I talk about Jesus first public teaching "The Beatitudes" in The Sermon on the Mount. A lesson that I was able to use to make the changes I needed in my own life. 


While thinking about putting this newsletter together, with everything going on in the world, I felt God tugging on my heart, reminding me about being powerless over things in life. So let us look at The Beatitudes in Matthew 5:3-12 and see the blessing they have.


When I entered into the House of Correction back in April of 2008, I was not in a good way and angry at the world. I was totally in denial that I had a problem with drinking, gambling, and many bad habits. I thought I was done and had no future in life. I was a broken man, only calling out to God to take my life, as I no longer wanted to live.


Somehow, God found a way of placing a Bible in my hands - not any Bible, a “Celebrate Recovery” Bible. That is when I found the message of blessings God had for me through “The Beatitudes” and a road to my recovery in eight simple principles. So I want to share with you the message Jesus gave through the Beatitudes.


The Beatitudes, taught by Jesus to all his disciples, are so simple yet so meaningful that we need to take time to sit and reflect upon them.
