This weekend I had the pleasure of attending The Miracles Beyond Measure Convention in Ocean City Maryland. I must give thanks to my Higher Power for his Grace & Mercy for sparing an addict like me. I am forever grateful.
This was my 3rd convention and my 2nd time in OC. I was amazed and in awe of the unity, love and companionship that I was blessed to be a part of. The main speakers were phenomenal and carried a clear message. The workshops were equally amazing and I left each meeting feeling spiritually refreshed.
The theme of this convention along with the speakers helped me to realize how much of a miracle WE all truly are. It helped to reinforce my belief that I am somebody and that I can be anything that I want to be. I can do anything that I put my mind to. Nothing is beyond my grasp or out of my reach.
This gathering of recovering addicts was proof positive that addicts do recover. To see so many people happy and in recovery all together in one place was outstanding. The message of hope and the promise of freedom from active addiction was alive and in full force. To see so many new comers and old timers alike at times was overwhelming and I found myself brought to tears with my feelings of gratitude.
Miracles Beyond Measure is a fitting name for the recovery process. To me it means that
As long as I stay in position and continue to place my recovery as priority 1, my life will continue to change beyond my wildest imagination. That I cannot even begin to fathom the blessings that are in store.
I left Maryland feeling brand new. I have been restored to a point of having that hunger and urgency and am looking forward to doing my part in carrying the life saving message…
That an addict, any addict.
Can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use and find a NEW way to live.
Peace and Blessings
