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.

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.

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.

Psalm 94:19

My anxiety, like for many, stems from fear. Fear drove me to not accomplish a plethora of things in life. Now I replace fear with faith. When I’m anxious, depressed, sad, joyful, or content I pray. I pray for more faith and less fear to continue on this journey. May we all have a great week with more faith and less fear!
