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.

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!

Romans 5:8

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. The power of love, wisdom, and self-improvement brings me closer to Jesus. He saved me and I am extremely grateful for being given favor. Now it’s time to pass the message on to others.

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.

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.

James 1:12

Being tested by God helped me build mental strength, courage, wisdom, and an abundance of faith. In the past I would ask why me? Why am I being tested? Can’t I just be left alone? God tests us because it aides in building stronger values and morals. And if you don’t succeed fail forward, any failure can be turned into a success!

Psalm 139:23-24

The old me would say why me? Or Poor me!

Every time God tested me I ran and hid. I didn’t realize that God was testing me to build a stronger version of myself! Now when I am tested self-pity and self-sabotage are a thing of the past. I may not pass every test that is put in front of me, but I try to learn from each experience. Testing me has strengthened my character and faith in my Higher Power. Ultimately when tested if you “fail” fail forward and have faith that God is with you!
