Hello and God Bless You

I like to write about things that I am going through whether it be good or bad. I post my feelings, thoughts and even situations that occur during the day. Lately the Just For Today and I have been in sync so I have been posting my thoughts based on that. I have been at such peace these last couple of days and I have to thank God for it all.

I am grateful today for the presence of God in my life. I have a new found faith that is working for me and I am excited about it. I am pleased with the progress that I am making in my recovery since I have come to believe that God will get me through all the obstacles that I face in my daily routine. I now know that God cares for me and will guide me through the roughest of times as well as when times are good. Everything I do God has a hand in. I truly feel that when I speak to him he hears me and answers me. My subconscious thoughts is where he contacts me and I know this to be true. When I get that gut feeling that I am doing something right or wrong I know that that is God guiding me.

For a very long time I didn’t believe in God. I had no faith that anyone was looking out for me but me. I used to say if there was a God how could he let me go through all of this pain and misery. I blamed everything that was my fault on God. I even developed a resentment towards my mother for forcing me as a child to go to church and Sunday school. Little did I know I would come around and come to rely on his strength as a adult. (Adult only by age)

Today I have gratitude. I am learning to be humble and show humility. I am not as STUBBORN LOL well the jury might still be out on that one. I am learning to be open to suggestions and take advice without judging the people who are trying to offer it. I am learning how to live finally. I am finally getting some guidance on how I am supposed to live my life. I always did things my way and always got what I always got, nothing but trouble. I am learning to get out of my own way and let God show me his will for me and I am learning how to carry that will out. Everyday is a learning experience that I am grateful for.

It really does get better. I am an example of that. I know that as long as I continue to build my spirituality and keep my faith, do the footwork and stay connected with my home group, sponsor, network and my online network (which by the way has grown tremendously lately) I will be alright.
I would like to thank everyone and I mean everyone who has helped me to stay grounded. I love all of you.

    I am so BLESSED with how peaceful you are coming across : )
    Acknowledging the One who created us as our HP is never going to disappoint us.
    I am learning a process of acceptance, of my illness and struggle with suicide and the horrifying depths of hopelessness and painful emotions that come at me like a rushing river. It happened yesterday as I was driving home from an AA mtg. I immediately followed the prompting of praying to GOD/my HP…”GOD, I accept today that I have an illness that overcomes my heart and mind with thoughts of suicide and an ocean of hopeless, painful emotions, and I turn it all over to You, that You will save me and heal me, and use me for Your Kingdom, Power and Glory!!!” By the time I got home, 20 minutes later, I felt like it had never happened. I was encouraged and strengthened and made it out of the house, to an evening AA mtg. After seeing my psychiatrist today, who was very thorough in asking about my progress these past 3 months, he let me know that he sees that I am making progress. He still wants me to consider joining a PTSD program. I will turn this over to GOD/my HP, and if that is necessary, I will go.
    Love and Prayers for ya<3
