HOPE is always a good thing...

On Jesus's birthday (april 6th) I wanted to recognize his grace in helping me get past the 50 day mark...
nothing but the mercy and grace of God has ennabled me to get to this point.

I do what I can to eat healthy, exercise, read/pray, be honest/open, be unashamed, connect with others (family/friends). (NO TV for me.. just a membership)

There are many aspects of my life that still need attention & god has been whispering those to me line upon line... but I'm just stunned and humbled that God has seen fit to grant me 50+ days of sobriety.

I've been thinkng a lot of the scripture..
"and they waxed stronger and stronger in humility."

it seems like the more and more that I realize that I of myself ultimately CANNOT MANAGE my life... and that I desperately NEED God's grace.. that the more recovery I am blessed with. I love where my life is going.. and I love God so much for his miraculous hand in my life lately.

I've been viewing everyday as DAY #1.. but it's nice to see some success, Thanks to God.


"Way to go! Sounds like you've got some good stuff going. Keep it up!"

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "
