These are all new occurrences. As in, 2 days ago I would have sneered at you had you told me this was coming.
I guess that’s why I’m being faced with significant temptation tonight.
Focus on truth is what Pastor instructed. I have spent an inordinate time doing just that. I guess that explains an attack from the enemy. “Wait a minute…he’s giving this a shot. We better sink him right now”
Piss off, satan.
I had a crappy day at work yesterday. It truly sucked. However, my day was awesome. Work problems did not affect my overall mood. I focused on truth. I accepted that I’m a good man with big problems, just like everyone else.
Being positive is very tough for me. Depression and addiction do that to me. BUT, God does not want me to live in fear, negativity and shame.
I am embracing God’s message to me. Recovery is real. Change is real.
Here I come.
