      Being sober is not so easy in our society, creativeone59, but it is truth. We cannot hear the word of God when we are intoxicated.

      It is so imperative that we live, think, and do all things with soberness of mind. Without this quality, we can really get ourselves in a whole heap of trouble -mentally, physically, and spiritually.

      AMEN Creativeone. "We must always pray with the soberness of mind and with and honest heart. " AMEN!

      Sobriety is practiced by all Christians. God cannot speak, lead, guide, teach or help us if we are not in the right spiritual condition.

      Thank you for this sobering message from the Lord.

      Forever His,

    working
