He Knows Nothing

1 Corinthians 8:2 KJV

2. And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.

When I was growing up there are times that I just didn't listen to my parents advice or what I thought you do it or else.  And probably like other children we thought that they lived in another generalization and times have changed. And that things are now different.  So we decided to live life on our terms.

Now my parents would take me to church on Sundays.  But for me it was boring and just could not get my attention.  Now I did join some other children that went to church, but I do have to admit that when we went on a what I guess you could call some kind of retreat, well we just didn't act like what I guess you would say doing things that were not very Christian.

Like most young adults, we would believe that we could not get addicted to alcohol and that we could control it.  For all that thinking turned out for me that I knew nothing. Although I didn't start out as a full blown alcoholic it ended up turning out to be.

Like in my last post I had to make a choice: Choose Life or Choose death.  For if I would have not chosen life I might not be alive today. 

1 Corinthians 8:3 KJV

3. But if any man love God, the same is known of him.

So I decided to join AA and try to get a sober life.  Learning how to live life on life's terms. For me I didn't object the word of God, like others did since they were either atheist or agnostics so they didn't like the word God being mentioned. I guess they have their excuses why they are against God or even the word. But I wasn't there to try to convert people to God, but there to find a solution in quit drinking. For I had determined that I cannot help anyone, unless I found a way to live life's terms and not my own.  So I decided to turn to the Person that created life for He has the knowledge on how to live life in a better way than I could ever imagine.

So also starting my journey in sobriety, I started another journey in find out the true about God.  So I started to attend church.  But there was a problem in so doing it.  Although I believe that the ministers had good intentions in trying to explain God.  They would quote a scripture and preach on it.  But for me there was no back-up in what they were saying.  Although some of the stories they used to preach were somewhat interesting they still were not telling me who God is.

Then one day I was with my dad, who besides being a music teacher was also a minister.  We usually would just talk about what's going on in life or we would talk about music.  But this time it was different we talked about God.  It was though those conversation that I got to know God.  I helped me in my study of the Bible to understand God. So the decision of living life on life terms but to live life on God's terms, is the way to go in life.

I still make mistakes in life, but that alright for I know that God will forgive me, and will put me back on the right track. So in my young adult life where I knew nothing, now I know God and what He has in store for my.

God Bless,
Have a good day,
John T. Begin
