Just for today:
I know that faith in my Higher Power will not calm the storms of life, but it will calm my heart. I will let my faith shelter me in times of trouble.
As we develop faith in our daily lives, we find that our Higher Power supplies us with the strength and guidance that we need.

Hello and God Bless You.
I know that my faith has gotten me to this point and I know that I will continue to strive and survive as long as I keep that faith.
I have had many storms in my life and without the faith that I now possess all of them turned into major disasters. I had no faith no direction no plan no solutions and no answers. I was lost, hopeless, useless, miserable, confused and always HIGH among other things.
That was then.
Today I have come to rely on my faith in God to get me through many situations and just by me taking the time to pray and think things through I avoided a lot of repeat disasters. Now don’t get me wrong I haven’t just turned into a angel over night. I am still a work in progress but the key word is progress. I am making lots of it too. I guess the first 3 times I tried this I was not as ready as I am now. Whatever the case may be I know that I see a major difference in my attitude and the way I have been thinking since I decided to start turning things over to God and praying.
Praying everyday multiple times a day is new for me. In the past the only time I would pray was when my ass was in trouble. “Oh God please get me out of this and I swear I will never do it again” Yeah I hear you laughing so you know what I am talking about. See I have come to realize that those prayers were never answered because I lacked faith. I just used prayer as a get out of Jail or this or that card. I never used it the way it was intended. I now know why none of my prayers seemed to have been answered. I wasn’t clear headed, honest or sincere about any of them. In reality God was answering my prayers I just wasn’t open to receive his answers.
As my faith develops more and more everyday I am becoming a better person. I am able to see clearly what Gods will is for me and I am given the power to carry it out. I have learned not to dwell on the past, its the past. Thanks to my faith in God I have been able to let some of that hurt go. As I said I am still a work in progress. So there is still a lot of ground to cover but at least it has begun. I am learning to stop procrastinating just have the faith that it will be alright and just do it.
Nothing good ever happens overnight. Today I am learning to have patience and not expect everything to happen on my timetable. Its all in the hands of my HP/God and I am cool with that. I cannot believe half the things I am saying and doing today but I see the change and I like it. You know whats crazy though I could have done this years ago….
IF I ONLY HAD FAITH!!
