James 5:16

When I was younger and ignorant I would pray for God to give me things. Give me money give me success give me health and a new body. It was all about giving to ME. What a selfish way to pray. Now I have let go of fox hole prayers. Now I pray selflessly thanking God for giving me another day at life another opportunity to grow and learn. I ask God that he gives me the wisdom, empathy, love, and fortitude I need to go about day helping others by first helping myself.

Striving to become a better version of myself!

I am in recovery from alcohol for a little over 1 year now. I want to inspire and give hope to people who feel hopeless and lost in this disease. There is a way out, it is not easy, but it's worth it! Come see my journey.

  1. I can really relate to what you are saying. I also use to pray for worldly things but I have learned to trust God and pray that He uses me to better myself and help others. Thank you for sharing.!
