Mick is a person in the world. He has a lot of vices. Heavy drinking and excessive cursing are big problems for Mick. His drinking is out of control. Mick almost hit a pedestrian last week behind the wheel driving drunk. He does believe in Jesus Christ though.
This is Mick’s car. It is looking dirty …
Mick has decided he is better than this. He is taking a stand. Mick is going to stop cursing for a full week. Mick had a few slip ups with profanity – but it was a rather successful week overall. Next week Mick might raise the bar.
Mick feels pretty good about going a week without cursing too much at all. Mick says “it’s like going to the gym – but a different type of workout”. This week Mick is cutting out music with heavy cursing. That makes sense. It is easier not to curse if you aren’t listening to curse music all the time.
Mick is stacking some wins. Mick decides to take on a dragon. Mick drinks 5 beers a day. If he could only get down to 2. That would be a major victory!
Mick is making those 2 beers stretch. He has reduced his alcohol intake from 5 beers a day down to 2! That’s a huge win for Mick. The dragon isn’t slayed yet – but it is staggering.
Mick notices fringe benefits with his new attitude. Reducing alcohol is cutting out calories. This week Mick goes a step forward with his diet. Most days Mick has a full size candy bar. This week he tries 5 hershey kisses per day instead. Mick did the math. He is eliminating around 700 calories a day just by reducing some beer and candy!
More sober time for Mick means more time for getting woke. Mick hasn’t read a book in forever. He picks up a copy of Lucifer Dethroned by William Schnoebelen because he saw it suggested in a Virtuous Dreams article 🙂
Mick is stunned at what he reads in Lucifer Dethroned. Mick learns more from this book than all movies he’s ever watched in his life combined. He never really read scripture much. Mick decides he’s going to read the King James Version Bible (KJV) for himself.
Mick is now reading the KJV Bible for himself. He even download it to his iPod. Mick is watching YouTube channels like Chris LaSala, Jonathan Kleck, Richie From Boston, Now You See TV, James and Lea DiNonno, Raymond Carrington, etc. He is learning about the pagan holidays and pagan goddesses. Mick even knows what the Thelema is now. He is amazed how few people know these things.
Mick is paying close attention to the red words in the KJV. The red words are the words of Lord Jesus in scripture. A few particular verses stand out today. Like this one …
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. – Matthew 7:21-23 KJV
And this one …
While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.
Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. – Matthew 12:46-50
Mick’s car is looking cleaner. He finds it challenging to keep it clean!
Don’t we all Mick. Don’t we all.
