Selling It

Selling It

It is been suggested we “pray with a feather” for prayer should never be hard work. Additionally, when engaged in prayer we should not concern ourselves with phrasing or providing long explanations. The longer the explanation or “set up” the more obvious we are trying to “sell it.” Now in truth, who are we really trying to sell, God or ourselves? “Guilty with an explanation your Honor.” God already knows our heart and mind, all the issues of our life for He is closer than breath, nearer than hands and feet. Remember, His love is unconditional, grace freely given regardless of our transgressions, impossible to earn. Though there may and probably will be secular consequences for our past ill-conceived actions and words, we are forgiven in spirit as soon as we earnestly ask, our real task then to demonstrate forgiveness in action, to others but most importantly to ourselves. So, we pray simply, honestly, quietly from the heart, for when we do, we receive openly and in great measure, forgiveness manifest, for that is the promise.

Silk sheets or city streets, Park Avenue or park bench, addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer of lives. My name is Vincent Lee Jones and I have been in recovery since September 1985. My professional career began when I was nearly 20 years in recovery and was asked to work pro bono with at risk students at Huntington Beach High School. At the time I had developed a reputation within the at large recovery community as an effective communicator and was known to some of the faculty. After the death of two students from prescription drugs I was asked to start working with at risk students, which I did for nearly 5 years. Word of mouth lead to offers of compensated freelance Facilitator and Director positions with numerous local treatment facilities in the ensuing years. As a retired Building Contractor/Designer, working in conjunction with a treatment facility, I created a construction program utilizing a workforce comprised almost exclusively of people new or returning to recovery, helping them to not only learn a trade and start making a living but since many of them had relapsed numerous times, to begin truly building a foundation with real aftercare to live free of active addiction. This program changed many lives. In my 30+ years in recovery I have worked with thousands of individuals from all walks of life, teenagers to the retired, famous to infamous, prosperous to those living hand to mouth, adamant atheists to those embracing strong Religious beliefs; suffering from all manner of intoxicant and behavior-based addictions as well as those who love and care about them, both as a member in recovery Fellowships and as a treatment professional. I can be contacted at 714-366-1725. I write and publish daily a recovery based nondenominational spiritually based blog at with accompanying videos that can be found as well on YouTube and LinkedIn at Vincent Lee Jones.
