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.

12 Steps to victory in Jesus
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Monday, 17 July 2017

Last Sunday I had to call the Indian Police as we had someone laying on the front porch of the Church in a red sleeping bag. I went over and woke him up and he was startled and asked where he was I said in front of the Harrah Assembly of God Church. He wanted somewhere to sleep so let him inside the Church and went home and called 911 and they gave me the Indian police. They came out in about 20 minutes. I was in the house across the way and went out to talk to the officers and let them know I was not able to take him anywhere even though he said, you’re a Church, right? You suppose to help. I said, yes, we do and if one comes and listens and obeys the Lord he will never get into your condition of homelessness and drunken stupor. That is the reason I called the police for now they can help you.
The officer said I have seen him before in worse situations. I also talked to him about accept the Lord and letting the Lord help him in becoming a blessing. Then the officer put in the t he Patrol Car and I talk to him through the window, assuring him we want to help and he needs to come back when sober. I’m not drunk, he said.
I am concern for all on our Reservation regardless of skin color and want all to become a blessing and not a curse, to where they have to be ashamed of what they are doing. Alcoholism is a major problem and I would like all to know God created us to be able to have control of what we eat, drink and do with our lives. We do not have to be under the burden of alcohol, drugs, gambling or any other sins that would defeat us to where we can’t be what God created us to be.
Let’s look at the oldest recover program in history so we can repair the damages of sins addictions.
Having worked in jail ministry since 1955 when those who were arrested of being drunk went into a drunk tank and as a young teen ager I was with an older gentleman talking to them. One of the areas we started with, was we have to accept where we are, and how helpless we are, for in here we are powerless and the offices have the power. We have come to the place where we are unmanageable. We have lost the ability to make good choices and are separated from family and friends and regret in now we are locked up.
