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.

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 💪

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.
