"Come to me, all those who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." Mathew 11:28

All hurts, habits and hangups serve an emotional purpose. People don't engage in compulsive behaviors randomly! There is always a reason and always a reward. The quick fix or mood changer of drugs is a displaced way to regain control over intolerably helpless feelings. But there are other ways of regaining control.........

Addiction is a displaced  behavior used to regain control over an emotional state (we feel helpless, trapped, powerless) with a displaced behavior (HHH). Regain control with a direct healthy behavior that will empower you and there is no addiction!

When we have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ we learn to Delegate (surrender) control to God (2 Cor. 12: 9-10) and God will reciprocate by empowering you with the Holy Spirit (John 14:16), that will enable you to regain control with direct healthy behavior, with new transformed thinking (Romans 12:2), motivation, purpose and values or fruits of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). (Note self-control is one of those fruits or values!).

Jesus Christ has been teaching behavior therapy for over 2000 years. Christ teaches that in order to regain control over helpless circumstances, delegate control to Christ. Christ will show us the difference between the quick fix or mood changer of displaced behavior and how to regain control of our emotions with direct healthy behavior.

Christ Driven Behavior (CDB), is  a way off the treadmill of corrupted thinking, with renewed thinking (romans 12:2), a life time mentor (John 14:16) and self-control (Gal. 5:22-23).

Change your thinking and change your life.

"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!
