I am convinced that my Turning Point facilitator was put into my life by God to show me the way of Jesus and the importance of His Word. I was inspired deeply. Turning Point is the most positive thing I have ever completed in my life.
I can't even begin to tell you how much better my life has become since I have become aware of the upward path to developing Christian character found in those precious verses contained in 2 Peter 1:3-11. Just being able to see those eight Christian traits in black and white helped me to apply them in my everyday life. The Word of God being alive in me-mind, body and soul-is a direct result of Turning Point.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to have taken Turning Point and so blessed to have learned how to apply what I've learned in my life. I guess that I can sum up where I am in life with a scripture. It is Proverbs 21:21. It says, "Anyone who wants to be godly and loving finds life, success and honor."(NIRV) Thank you, Father God, for the miracles that you have worked in my life! I have my family back in my life as a direct result of the life changes I've made with the encouragement I received from Turning Point. I have dealt with my life-controlling problem and am clean and sober. I have quit smoking cigarettes. I have stopped cursing. I have changed who I am. I may not be who I want to be. I may not be who I could be. But I thank Father God every day for not being who I used to be. I am truly a work in progress. So to answer the question of where am I in life... I'm in a much better place. In closing, I am a firm believer and a living example of Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
