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. 🙏

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!

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 💪

John 5:39

I have a plethora of self-help books. About 1 year ago I started reading the Bible, now I don’t really need the self help books. The Bible is a one stop shop for me to learn and grow. On this day 2 years ago my life changed dramatically and I am so blessed for the continuing transformation. 🙏

Mark 11:24

Belief is a powerful mindset to have. Even when we don’t believe in ourselves God infuses faith in us to be better and do better, with guidance from our Higher Power our potential is limitless.

Daily Bible Quote

I’ve always believed in treating others the way I’d like to be treated and helping others when I can. The only problem was when I was in active addiction I didn’t treat myself well at all and I was taking care of myself. Self-pity and self-sabotage engulfed me daily. I had to find faith in God until I could find the faith within me to overcome my short comings.

Striving to become a better version of myself!

Daily Bible Quote

Fear fueled my addiction for over a decade. I feared everything and I didn’t have a healthy relationship with God. Now that I have God in my life it gives me the fortitude to keep moving forward despite any challenges put in front of me.

I am blessed and grateful to have God in my life. He had faith in me when I had zero faith in myself.
