One Day At A Time

The most important line in this song is, “It started with a couple of beers…”

No one decides to become an alcoholic.

It happens.

Why can some drink, even heavily, and not become addicted?

Beats me.

All I know is my first drink (that was my choice) was at age 11 or 12. A few years later I was hooked.

I hate alcohol as only an alcoholic (or someone who has lost a loved one to a drunk driver) can.

I don’t know if Joe Walsh’s Higher Power is Jesus. I hope and pray so.

But the song shares truth, and truth is truth regardless of who says (or sings) it.

I urge you to listen to all the words, even if the style isn’t your cup of tea.

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
