Had a very difficult time

Hello everyone,

I did not write since a long time, I had some good and very diifcult time especially the last couple weeks, I'm not feeling very well and I try to lie to my self so many time this week that I feel guilty of it.

Somehow I tried to convince my self to go back to my addiction, but for some reason I was not able to do that.

I'm working on my step 7 and I feel I don't have enough faith, or just I don't believe that god will take away from me all these defect of character.


"Sometimes actually believing that the Lord will follow through in his promises is the hardest roadblock to overcome. It's amazing to me how simple that decision is yet we make it this monumental mountain of an obstacle. The awesome thing is though is once we actually come to believe that the Lord absolutely will follow through on all of His promises, that belief carries over to ALL of His promises, not just the promise at hand. So I would suggest praying for the ability to believe Him.

Also - if you are struggling with one step it usually means you didn't complete/understand/fully embrace the previous step. So if you are struggling with step 7 - I suggest revisiting step 6:-)

Good luck!

"I will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
