Today was another day. In some aspects, other aspects pretty much status quo. For some reason the money issues are still here. The foreclosure still looms. The job search didn't result in anything new. There is one bright spot that does feel pretty good.........I did not want to, nor did I drink today.

I suppose at some point that mantra will become secondary..........or maybe it will just become part of who I am. One thing I do know is that it feels much better not doing it than doing it. Regrets are slowly turning into what may become wisdom...that will probably take a lifetime, but the journey continues. I cannot change what has transpired before. It still causes me grief, but that too lessens each day. So as one part of who I am grows, another part diminishes.......which I regard as a positive.

Things WILL get better!!

Let the Lord Medicate your pain.    
"Oh how I know the daily pain that you are walking through. The daily job search, the bills, the family pressures, the foreclosure, the feeling of desperation and depression, feeling like a failure, and on and on.
" Oh, Lord, I am grateful for the few bright spots that I have in my life. Please guide me and help me overcome all of my problems and weaknesses. I need thy strong arm in my life. I have done my best. Now I need thee to show thy mercy in my behalf. I also pray for patience while these things are worked out. May thy Holy Spirit bring peace to my soul and grant me, Heavenly Father, the faith and courage to go forward and do what is necessary to bring about success in all of my righteous desires and undertakings. In the name of my Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

This is my prayer for you brother. Steady as she goes and one day at a time."

"Are you battling a demon of addiction—tobacco or drugs, or the pernicious contemporary plague of ography? Whatever other steps you may need to take to resolve these concerns, come first to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Trust in heaven’s promises. In that regard Alma's testimony is my testimony: "I do know," he says, "that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions."
