Many of us have made mistakes in our lives. We’ve done things that we regret, and there are certain days when we wake up feeling like everything is hopeless.
The most important thing to remember is that you’re not alone!
There are many people out there who care about you and want to help you get back on the right track. Life may seem tough now but it will only get better from here on out.
All it takes is one decision – a decision that can change your life forever.
Every day, I post a reflection for my readers to read as part of their morning or evening routine so they can reflect and be encouraged by the Word of God each day.

Since most of us are born with an abundance of natural desires, it isn’t strange that we often let these far exceed their intended purpose. When they drive us blindly, or we willfully demand that they supply us with more satisfactions or pleasures than are possible or due us, that is the point at which we depart from the degree of perfection that God wishes for us here on earth. That is the measure of our character defects, or, if you wish, of our sins.TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 65
I was feeling down and depressed. I felt like my life had no meaning or purpose, until one day when a friend from out of town showed up at our door with some pamphlets for A.A., which stands for Alcoholics Anonymous.
She told me that it’s where she found the light in her darkness; I walked into their meeting room filled with cheers as someone else shared his story about how he overcame addiction to alcohol through God-given faith and hope in humanity during this dark time in history.”
I stepped into the lights of A.A.; they’re warmly inviting you onto their path towards recovery right then and there, leaving behind any bad feelings you may have had before entering its doors because now those problems seem so far away.
If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, don’t hesitate to reach out. A.A., Alcoholics Anonymous, can provide help and hope on the road to recovery.
I urge anyone who has been drinking too much for way too long to find a meeting near them today!” The fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous offers relief from life-controlling problems through spiritual guidance and moral support.”
