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!"

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
