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. 🙏

Word of The Day
courage in pain or adversity.
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!

Word of The Day
assume as a fact; put forward as a basis of argument.
“Putting on God’s armor daily”
My armor consist of love, prayer, & meditation!
Everyday I put on the full armor of God to live a healthier life in 3 aspects of my life. Physical, mental, and spiritual health. I have to fix myself before I can fix others and denounce evil.
I didn’t wait for The Lord, He waited for me until He knew I was ready. I was broken, unnerved, and overflowing with self-pity. God lifted me up and strengthened me when I couldn’t manage life on my own. Now I proudly walk with my shoulders back and head high. Life is good!
“God is my strong fortress”- God kept me safe for years even tho my faith in God was nearly absent. I am so blessed today. I walked thru life angry, disgruntled, and feeling confused. Kind of like roaming the desert for 31 years in a constant state of confusion. I always asked why me? Why did God give me such a self-destructive disease? I was asking the wrong why or looking at it from the wrong perspective. God gave me this disease because God knew I could handle it. We all have the inner strength to pursue greatness, I had to find God and put The Lord first in all my affairs.

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.
