I made it early to church today and stayed for all three hours. It was the first time going to all three meetings in a long time. I forgot that we switched schedules and I even went to an hour of the other ward to;-)

I am going to attend an SA meeting tonight. I have been looking back at myself an realizes just how far away from the gospel I have gotten over the last 6 years.

Recovery has become a part of my life now. It is a positive work I can accomplish daily. It use to be purely shame but now I see it differently. It is a part of my life. It is a work that creates opportunities for service and a chance to get closer to my father in heaven.

Have a great night everyone.


Great to hear    
"hey man, congrats on going to church - that's a great step. hopefully you experienced love and acceptance from them, I always have. Keep up the good decisions and be patient. Remember that recovery is like planting and nourishing a seed and will take time, effort, hope, and patience. Good luck!"

Thank you!    
"I appreciate the kind words. Yes one step at a time and keep making good decisions. They were nice and it was good to be there. It's tough in some ways and great in others. No matter what though its where I need to be."

"The excuse is given that it is hard to avoid, that it is right at our fingertips and there is no escape. Suppose a storm is raging and the winds howl and the snow swirls about you. You find yourself unable to stop it. But you can dress properly and seek shelter, and the storm will have no effect upon you. Likewise, even though the Internet is saturated with material, you do not have to watch it. You can retreat to the shelter of the gospel and its teaching of cleanliness and virtue and purity of life. "
