Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."
We are all powerless over our tendency to do the wrong thing, but we are not powerless to choose how to think.
Instead of going to God’s Word for direction when tough temptations loom, or instead of using the brains He gave us, we often go with our gut, our emotions. Or worse, we fly on autopilot, not giving a second thought to the consequences of our actions.

Isaac Newton stated the rule: "The simplest explanation for some phenomenon is more likely to be accurate than more complicated and convoluted explanations.

Einstein said, "Make  things as simple as possible and no simpler."

Steve Jobs put only one switch on all his devices to turn the device both off and on.

Jesus said, "Come to me......" Mathew 11:28

Christ said, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV)

Celebrate Christ Recovery, is based on the premise that feelings and behaviors are caused by a person's thoughts, not on outside stimuli like people, situations and events. People may not be able to control their external circumstances, but they can change how they think about them and therefore change how they feel and behave (Romans 12:2). The way you feel emanates from how you think. Behind everything you do is a thought. Every behavior is motivated by a belief. Every action is prompted by an attitude. Pay attention to how you THINK, for everything you do flows from the heart. Proverbs 4:20-23.

Emotions are a complex entity governed in part by hormones for both male and female. The Central nervous system (Brain and spinal cord) along with the Endocrine system, control coordinate and regulate every single activity of your body through the reception and transmission of nerve impulses.  When you surrender your life to Jesus Christ, you Intelligently Delegate your life to Christ. (2 Corinthians 9-10) Christ returns that control to you through Reciprocal Innervation, the Holy Spirit. (John 14:16). Christ changes your thinking and changes your life. (Romans 12.2). The results is that we receive the gifts of the spirit, not the least of which is Self Control. (Galatians 5:22-23). This isn't rocket science, this is science and scripture intertwined.

"I am a Surrendered Believer in Jesus Christ with Free Will and I CHOSE Surrender (Intelligent Delegation) in my victory over, “Recreational Chemical Abuse, my weekend, "False Idols."
"I chose DIRECT health assertive Christ Driven Behavior (CDB) instead of DISPLACED behavior in order to regain control over feeling helpless, powerless, trapped and lacking control. I changed my, "Thinking," and God changed my life."

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 .

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17.


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!
