at our lowest

when we are at our lowest is when god is able to bring us to be the best we can be. yesterday was an absolutely aweful day. nothing went right (as noted by yesterdays post). but last night i finally told my mom about my addiction. we talked about everything that is goin on in my life other than that too. i felt so much love from her. i realize that my parents were never not there for me, but that i was just never wanting to go to them. it was always awkward to talk to them about anything more than small talk. when i was younger i never talked to them much, since when i was 5-7 my sister was very very sick, so they were constantly consumed by that, so i never established a good conection with my parents. now i am able to see a BLESSING come from my addiction. when we are humble, god can make our weak things strong. i love my parents, and i love my heavenly father. this is suck a turn around from the last 2 weeks where i felt like i just hated everything.

now i also have the BoM on tape, so i will be listening to that a lot, hopefully. its another one of those things that, i should do, but i have a hard time at being consitant at anything.

"I battle with an addictive personality so I get into everything enthusiastically good or bad. God grants me the wisdom to know the difference. I am going through another round of addictive behavour. In the last six months my daughter came clean with an addiction which shocked and surprised me. My wife and I have supported her with the ups and downs and had to show tough love as directed by our Bishop. She too felt the pressure release once she opened up. My daughter is working toward getting her patriarchal blessing. And she is living within the guideline we all agreed upon. Yeah."

"If, through our unrighteous choices, we have lost our footing on that path, we must remember the agency we were given, agency we may choose to exercise again. I speak especially to those overcome by the thick darkness of addiction. If you have fallen into destructive, addictive behaviors, you may feel that you are spiritually in a black hole. As with the real black holes in space, it may seem all but impossible for light to penetrate to where you are. How do you escape? I testify the only way is through the very agency you exercised so valiantly in your premortal life, the agency that the adversary cannot take away without your yielding it to him. "
