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.

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!

Even though we are sinners God still loves us. He sacrificed his only Son for our sins. I am not perfect and I am a sinner, but I can always do more to sin less and praise more.

Psalm 23:4

For 20 years I walked through life in darkness because I chose to. I didn’t fully embrace faith and God. I would tippy toe into faith when I needed it, and only when I needed it. I’ve now learned I have to embrace my faith daily. Whether I am on good times or bad times my faith is stronger today because I have tried living life on my own and it has brought me to the darkest places. Now the light shines daily. Even when times get tough and the darkness looks near my faith in God let’s the light shine. My Higher Power teaches me to look for good even in the worst situations. I am confident that I can overcome the darkness and evil with my faith. I am so blessed for a second chance. 751 days strong 馃挭

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.

John 13:14

This passage taught me that in order to gain respect you have to show positive actions. What I say and what I do should be symbiotic, and less hypocritical. Washing the feet of others humbles me to The Lord. It proves nothing is beneath me in this world and I do it with love and Gods Will, no my will.

Successful leaders lead from the front. They also lead by example. I ask God Daily to help me lead from the front not the back, and lead with love not hate.
