The Journey Continues

Today was the last day of outpatient treatment. It was an uplifting experience. I am grateful for the support of the group and the positive energy that came from it. The challenge continues as I must apply what I've learned to my everyday living. I cannot fall into old habits; I cannot rationalize that I can return to that lifestyle and be happy. I cannot fail myself. The power to change lies and comes from within. The journey continues. Today, I will not drink. When tomorrow comes, I will deal with that.

Now the work continues with building my support mechanisms and realizing that I am NOT alone. There are people who love me and care for me. There are people I love and care about. Positive thoughts and positive change.

"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."
