I need to know that my protection is trustworthy. I am grateful that I can depend on my protector, my guide, my healer – My Father. These last 60 days, without the assurances I have now would have been like so many cycles in my past – my cycle was:
Challenge to crisis to defeat to pain to withdrawal to recovery and potentially some of these overlapped as one challenge would lead to another challenge – leaving me helpless and hopeless – depression.
My coping mechanism was dysfunctional, and at times completely non-functional. Today, I seek God first and always – no matter where in the cycle I am; I am not afraid to ask God for help or others as I believe He directs.
Christ is the provider of my eternal salvation.
Going to God through Christ and discovering and acknowledging what I am grateful for has been the salvation of my flesh.
"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”~ Matthew 6:34 (The Message)
