This photo says so much about who I am in my life today. When I first entered detox in 2007, I would get on my knees and awkwardly say, “God help me not use today. Help me to stay in treatment”.
I’m so humbled and grateful to God for saving from from a life filled with shame, self hate and remorse.
I’ve been used and abused.
I’ve done things I can’t believe I did.
I’ve been the aggressor.
I’ve been filled with hate.
But God has been so faithful to me. He has provided every step of the way. He has taught me how to see myself as clean and worthy. He has brought amazing women into my life. Women that have showed me what it means to be a godly woman, wife and mother.
Prayer, my friend, is one of the most powerful tools you can have.
Pray out loud.
Pray under your breath.
Pray with friends.
And in everything give thanks.
