Recovery From Self


Today I will talk about my recovery in faith and love through Christ my Lord. For so long I felt a hole in my heart. One that I tried to fill with many worldly things. Men, drugs, shopping, whatever made a temporary happiness. I was 18-20 when I first fell to drug abuse. I mean fell to the ugly depths of hell. I came to Jesus on hands and knees to save me, crying my heart out for his healing over me, so that I could live a life I was meant to live.

My prayers were answered! He took away the taste of that drug, and I have never went back to it. That was a miracle! A few years later, I found my husband and had a child, then another, then another... 3 in all, close in ages. My hole was being filled, or at least my heart was growing.

But 2 years ago, I started taking pain meds, and eventually found myself addicted. It filled the hole that still remained. But, it wasn't filling it. It made it grow. I have always been a spiritual person, but I was very naive to many things. I needed help. I went to treatment.

There I found what I was truly missing. GOD'S LOVE! Its always been there, but I didn't know how to receive it. The power that God grants me is truly amazing. The gifts he has placed in my arms, and the miracle's he blesses me with each day. I have to share this, because this is what I must always remember, and never let go of. And share with others who may feel empty!

I now know the power that God is Love and I am worthy of his love. I feel deeper and see pain in others that I never saw before. I trust that each day has been given to me and it is a gift. I haven't been always been good to myself. But, Jesus does love me, and he shows me that. I hand my days over to him each morning, and whatever happens in that day I am able to get through it because he is with me. He does not let harm come to me.

Through this journey of spiritual awareness I have had some enlightening encounters that I look forward to sharing. I am grateful for every angel, guide, and message that I receive from my heavenly father. God is GReat! And I look forward to more posts that entail my journey of light and peace. God Bless
