My Jesus Box

Thank you, hero, for your timely counsel to me! I have tried many things to overcome the fear, anger, hurt, sorrow, worry, and shame that comes with living with an addict. Your advice to have a Jesus Box has been life-changing for me. I poured out my heart in prayer and asked him to hold these things for me. Every day, when faced with doubt, I say to myself, "Jesus is carrying that for me." I thank God in all my prayers for the box that Jesus is holding for me.


My Box is now a TRUNK! :-D    
"So glad that you found this recovery tool helpful. It is amazing! Our Savior, his atonement, this beautiful endowment of love and sacrifice. Always there for us, anytime, anywhere. We just have to accept the gift.
That is why I call the 12 steps the "Atonement in Action Award"!
Love to you Sister and I am so glad you have found hope and healing with other Sisters who have walked a similar path.
Prayers and Love,"

"I need not define your specific problem to help you overcome it. It doesn’t matter what it is. If it violates the commandments of the Lord, it comes from Satan, and the Lord can overcome all of Satan’s influence through your application of righteous principles. Please understand that the way back is not as hard as it seems to you now. Satan wants you to think that it is impossible. That is not true. The Savior gave His life so that you can completely overcome the challenges you face. "
