You haven’t had a drink in two weeks. You’re focusing on your daily responsibilities and you feel like you’re becoming more successful.
Your thoughts are clear, the world seems brighter, and the people around you don’t bother you as much. But then there’s that one day where it’s just too hard to keep going forward without taking some time for yourself with an alcoholic beverage or two.
I’m not here to tell you what to do-I know that finding peace with alcohol can be difficult-but I want this piece of writing to remind you of how far you’ve come since starting this journey towards sobriety, so if things get tough again tomorrow, remember these words: “just take care of today.”
Daily Reflections December 6
When we developed still more, we discovered the best possible source of emotional stability to be God Himself. We found that dependence upon His perfect justice, forgiveness, and love was healthy, and that it would work where nothing else would. If we really depended upon God, we couldn’t very well play God to our fellows nor would we feel the urge wholly to rely on human protection and care.TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 116
We often rely on human resources to make us happy but when those attempts fail, it is always God who remains by your side.
He will provide you with the love and guidance that’s missing in life so please don’t give up hope!
I want to share a quote from the book, “The Bible” with you. It says that “I have been young and now am old, yet I have not seen anyone as kind as You” (Psalms 92:6).
In this season of life when it seems like all has failed me, my hope is in Jesus Christ who never fails or forsakes those who trust Him.
He will always be there for me through every circumstance because he loves us unconditionally. My happiness can depend on human efforts but only God can provide spiritual nourishment so we need him more than ever!
