No Time

Recently I found out that my step dad of nine years was a serial child molester and a rapest. My sister finally came home from 7 years of prostitution n drugs and confessed all. My brother fell off the wagon, drank to stupidity and wreck his truck in which he should have died in. My husband left me. I'm homeless, kids are with there dad's for the summer and I'm all alone.
I've been an alchoholic for 8 years and I've been sober for nearly three months now n I think about drinking everyday but then I think... THERE'S JUST NO TIME. life is short, and bad things just keep happening one after another. I don't even get to time to feel bad about the first issue because another just keeps coming. Life will be over soon anyways and compared to eternity, this amount of time here on earth is like a few seconds. Bishop says we begged for these bad things to happen to us so we can become like our heavenly father. Imagine if you were given a few seconds of life and in that life you were expected to learn as much as you can thru trials and tribulations so you can return... you would probably shove as much as you can in a few seconds and beg for more. Ofcourse not knowing how hard it would be or choosing these trials and tribulations with a different, more positive mindset. I don't feel like I have time to feel sorry for my self anymore. I just want live life without suffering. I feel that my suffering comes from not giving up. It's easy to die, but living is the challenge. It's easy to drink, but staying sober is more miserable. To weigh the cost against the benefits and to wilingly choose the more harder thing to do just sucks. But there's no time. like in a race, you start life pacing yourself. Toward the end, you must pick up the pace or you'll be left behind and lose.

"Just as the landfill requires dedicated work and attention, laboriously applying layer after layer of fill to reclaim the low-lying ground, our lives also require the same vigilance, continually applying layer after layer of the healing gift of repentance.…Our Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ, feel sorrow when we choose to remain in sin, when the gift of repentance made possible through the Atonement can clean, reclaim, and sanctify our lives. When we gratefully accept and use this precious gift, we can enjoy the beauty and usefulness of our lives... "
