Love Makes All Things New

Mark Bedillion

 

Love and faith will produce positive results. Unhealthy fears and lack of faith will produce negative results. Unfortunately, some parts of our world teach us to fear and challenge our faith. The 12 steps resulting in our spiritual awakening conquers the fears present in our world.

We use many destructive behaviors to escape our fears and lack of faith; alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, food etc. We must unlearn all the negative thought patterns that are causing our self-destructive behaviors. Love and faith eliminate all fear. We cannot love with faith and fear at the same time. We need to learn to think and act from a perspective of love and faith...then, we can be at peace with ourselves, our Higher Power, and others. We learn how through the 12 steps.
