All things are possible if we come to believe.....

Today I have faith

all things are real
when issues arise
I must face what I feel
I know today
that I can no longer hide
in a bottle
from the pain
of a
torn or hurt pride
In fact,
I've learned to stand
firm and stout
Since having a big ego
Eases God Out!

You see, I came to believe

When I admitted
to being
out of control
I accepted defeat to my
Today I can live happy
great support
from my friends in
and the principles I've
been taught

Since, I came to believe

I believe today
that with God in my life
I can overcome
my pain
my suffering and strife
And if, by chance
I want to pick up
a glass
my God gently
tells me
"this, too, shall pass!"

Because, I came to believe

God is my friend
who gives me what I need.
Guidance, encouragement
and the
Strength to Succeed.
I can let go of my past!
And no longer
feel odd!
Because in recovery
I have

Any addition Miriam is a hard thing to deal with, the beginning of recovery is admitting to it, then it is one step at a time and with God's giudance anything is possible. Thank you for sharing with us.

Miriam, a healing starts the day a person admits they have an alcohol problem and with them accepting God's guidance...they've hit a home run. A wonderful poem of healing and faith.

Hi Mimi:

Powerful. Personal. Wonderful. Clearly, you are in sync with your alternative lifestyle and it feels so good; huh? Right on! You transcended your former identity. You transcended your former self. And your work -- all of it -- remains adored.

A true journey to recovery. Always remember your higher power when life's struggles become overwhelming. The journey may not be easy at times, but, this is the journey that heals instead of destroys.
God Bless
