A recovery prayer 10/1

“God take my will and my life. Guide me in my recovery. Show me how to live.”

I remember hearing this prayer said many times at recovery meetings. But one fine day it hit me in a whole new light.

I believe that is why they say “keep coming” or “more will be revealed.” My perception and understanding of things is constantly changing and becoming more clear.

The part of this prayer that really hit me…was “show me how to live.”

I was hit with the beauty and the humility that “I” the great “I am” doesn’t even know how to live properly without a higher energy force, a source of spirit…without god in my life.

When I get in concert with or harmony with this energy…then I am living the way I was intended.

I have lived with the obsession and compulsion of relying on drugs and booze to make me feel better…which was literally a “dead” end.

And I have lived life in recovery ; learning the ways to rely on a higher power to feel better.

This way is much nicer.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!

  1. As the heart opens it ‘listens’ so much more clearly. We just have to make that decision to love ourselves and take a step towards it. Great post Danielle, I can hear your words but ‘feel’ so much more between them. I’ll never know that journey in experiencing it, a whole other way of being, but I can ‘feel’ its pain…and the heart it opened because of it ❤️🙏🏽
