Doctor Who Almost Lost Everything To Fentanyl Addiction Now Helps Others In Recovery.

“I know what it’s like to put drugs ahead of everything else—ahead of your profession, ahead of your family. It was awful."
After having been through it all, Follette has no regrets. “Whatever happened to get me to where I am today, it was worth it," he said. "I look at it as God doing for me what I couldn’t do for myself.”

Doctors are not God.  The word, "Doctor," means, "Teacher." Doctors have to learn first in order to teach. "My grace is sufficient for you for their is power in weakness." (2 Cor. 12:9-10). If you are willing to humble yourself and surrender control to God, He will empower you with a mentor the Holy Spirit (John 14:16). "You will not be conformed to this word but transformed with new thinking." (Romans 12:2). You will learn the values of the Holy Spirit, not the least of which is self control. (Gal. 5:22-23)

The main navigational tools in life are values and purpose. Life is not easy, fair or painless. God’s ultimate goal for your life on Earth is not comfort but character development. God wants you to grow up spiritually and become like Christ. Becoming like Christ does not mean losing your personality or becoming a mindless clone. Character is putting the values of Christ into habit.


Change your thinking and change your life.

Quick Navigation:

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
