Proverbs 24:27

The foundation of my metaphorical house was built on lies, self-sabotage, judgement, and avoidance. I didn’t love myself when I looked in the mirror. I wasn’t proud with myself. Will I ever? Yes! God willing I am in the process of rebuilding my foundation. One way I was able to stop drinking was through faith and radical acceptance. I am blessed to be given favor by my Higher Power and faith in myself. If you don’t believe you can then you are probably right. If your struggling don’t give up! Today could be the day your life changes for the better! No better day then The National Day of Prayer to start rebuilding your life. Prayer continues to strengthen my relationship with God and others. Thank you to everyone who never gave up on me, and saw something in me I couldn’t see in myself. 馃檹

Proverbs 24:27

I was never pragmatic when making decisions. No planning or preparation needed, there was no time for that. With that thinking I was ill prepared and made decisions based on emotions rather than the facts. I needed to prepare everyday by praying and meditating. I had to make sure my foundation was solid, because if I build my life on a weak or false foundation the entire house will fall down. I have been blessed with favor from God. I was given a second chance to rebuild my life’s foundation based on faith, love, and wisdom.

1 Peter 5:10

I suffered for far to long. I allowed my pain to turn into suffering. Then the suffering turned into self-pity and self-sabotage. I was lost in addiction and I couldn’t find a way out. I use to hear of people finding faith and completing the impossible. Back then I didn’t have much faith, it was hard for me to be an active addict and believe in God simultaneously. I had to remove the alcohol and sugar to simplify my life. About a year and a half into recovery my Higher Power granted me understanding. He restored, supported, and strengthened my belief in Him and for that I am forever grateful.

Philippians 4:6

It’s easier said then done to not worry about anything, but it is possible. I now understand there are areas of my life that I have full power over to fix and change. There are also parts of my life I can’t fix and that’s what I pray on. I ask God to give me the courage to change what I can, serenity to accept things I can’t change and the wisdom to know the difference. I don’t pray for material objects or money. I ask for serenity, courage, wisdom, empathy and understanding. We all have the willpower to change we just need to find our why. Also, don’t forget to say thank you!

Galatians 6:9

Patience does not come easy to me. I’ve always embraced instant gratification and if I didn’t get it I would quit what I was doing. From losing weight to stop drinking I gave up to early. I’ve tried to lose weight and stop drinking before. What is different this time? Why am I finally getting it? This time I have faith in my Higher Power and most importantly faith in myself to continue this arduous, but well worth it path to contentment. Fix what you can and what you can’t fix pray on it and give it to your Higher Power. Don’t give up! Your blessings maybe right around the corner!

Deuteronomy 6:5

The Lord loved me when I didn’t love myself. Everyday I learn to love myself a little more with the help of my Higher Power, prayer and meditation. Prayer is extremely powerful and beneficial when done unselfishly. If you are a person of faith thoughts and prayers DO help, but you need love in your heart to spread the powerful message of faith. In my opinion, those who says “thoughts and prayers” don’t work are typically people who have never experienced the power of prayer. I am living proof that prayer is helpful.

The reason evil exists is so good people can rise above it. Without evil we have no good. We need more love for one another to let the light shine and the darkness fall.

Psalm 94:19

My anxiety, like for many, stems from fear. Fear drove me to not accomplish a plethora of things in life. Now I replace fear with faith. When I’m anxious, depressed, sad, joyful, or content I pray. I pray for more faith and less fear to continue on this journey. May we all have a great week with more faith and less fear!
