God’s plan for the world stands up, all his designs are made to last. Psalms 33:11
God’s plans are God’s plans. They don’t change because we change. I don’t know about you, but my life pre-recovery was full of inconsistencies. I couldn’t trust myself, let alone trust anyone else. Trusting others in recovery came slowly for me.
I knew I could trust God. I have always known it, but I choose not to. He was for weak people, and I never saw myself as weak. I knew if I was going to trust Him it needed to be “ALL IN’ I have never been a half-full type person it has always been all or nothing.
Reading the Bible, I realized the promises of God were good and perfect. Two words I had never known in my life. James 1:17 says “Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven….. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle.” I knew if I was going to follow Him I had to change my attitudes, beliefs and, commitments.
I did and here I am 30+ still following Him, still committed to finding, and doing His will on a daily basis in every area of my life. God is good.
Thank you, Jesus, for trusting me and using me in your mission. Teach me how to use the gifts You give me to maximize the reach of Your Kingdom here on Earth.
