SoberDay 625… It’s Been Hard, But I’ve Made It!!!

It would be easy to say that the last couple of months have been all a bit of a mess, in fact it would be a bit of an understatement, I would say I have been a complete failure, I’ve certainly felt that way, if I’m honest I have felt that way for most of that time.

Jeremiah 29:11-12
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

But the truth is, I’m still living by the grace and strength I have been granted and each day I am still sober is never a failure, no matter what other trials I face, I have resisted any temptation to return to who I was, despite all the voices of deception that echoed around my my mind.

Jeremiah 17:7-8
But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

So today I put all that troubles me at the foot of the cross and give thanks for the strength that has seen me through to today, SoberDay 625 and pray for the strength and grace to keep this journey going.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Verse 1:
What can I give to You
What can I offer to a king
For all the love You’ve shown
For all Your mercy over me

I called Your name
You heard my cry
Out of the grave
And into life
My heart is Yours
My soul is free
Thank You God for saving me

Verse 2:
The rock of salvation
My hope is built on nothing less
Morning by morning
How great is Your faithfulness

You gave Your life upon the cross
You suffered once for all
You made a way
Jesus, in victory You rose 
You made us all Your own
Now we are saved

    Wayne Rebecca and I are so proud of and for you – precious heart God is most definitely with you. You have victory in Jesus’s name and through the power of his blood. No weapon that’s been formed to work against you will prosper. God is on your side. And so are we. We’re praying for your peace sweetheart. Keep the words of faith you have here in your heart and your days will brighten. Whenever you feel like you’re overwhelmed repeat the scripture, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper!” God’s word is a sword and shield and he will defend you from all harm.

    Wonderful to hear! You have come so far and I praise God for being with you every step of the way. May God continue to bless you in the next year.

    It gets easier. Boozer and some drugs 35 years. Clean and sober 11 years, 9 months. Since you are a person of faith you must get the Recovery Bible, annotated for alcoholics and addicts.
