    Forgiving Others

    October 29, 2022 Dear God; Good Morning;  Wow, a God Shot this early in the morning? I open the book “God’s Promises for every day” to “Forgiving others. All I can say is, WHAT? For me, it is not so much forgiving others as forgiving myself. I have an extremely hard time forgiving myself for past transgressions. Sometimes, no a lot of times, I don’t think I deserve forgiveness. I know this makes no sense, but I feel responsible for what happened to my biological parents, and I wish I could go back somehow and be there for my mom. As for my father, I am still resentful of him for…

    Health and Recovery

    October 30, 2022 Dear God, good morning. I”m starting to feel better. Thank you for nursing me back to health. Three more days of steroids and rest. The book God’s Promises for every day writes, What to do when you are in doubt about yourself?” I doubt myself all the time, and I second-guess everything I do. Because my self-esteem determines how I feel emotionally. There are days when I feel strong, and I know you have the Holy Spirit lovingly watching over all of us. The Bible says, “So don’t worry, I am with you. Don’t be afraid because I am your God. I will make you strong and…

    Death and Dying

    October 25, 2022 Dear God, good morning. Today’s reading in God’s Promises for every day writes, “What to do when someone close to you dies.” Wow, this one is a painful topic. Death sucks! Last year I lost two friends, Dan and Danny. Dan and I were close, and we talked every other week. Dan was like an older brother to me. We went to karaoke, and Dan’s voice was incredible. Dan and I sang the song “Leather and Lace” by Stevie Nicks and Don … we sang as a duo together. A bunch of us in the fellowship went to the VFW, where they had karaoke, and we were…

    Worrying in the Bible

    October 18, 2022 Good morning, good morning. Today’s reading is about Worrying in the Bible. It writes, ” Jesus said, Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust in me.” John 14:1 I am worried that I will have a hard time quitting cigarettes. I’ve been a smoker since I was fifteen years old, and that’s a very long time. I have COPD, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder, and Emphysema. And I have two nodules on my right lung. I need to see the doctor this week if I can see her because I still physically feel weak, I’m constantly coughing, and mucus in my nasal cavity keeps…

    Fellowship with the Newcomer

    August 23, 2022 Dear God, Good morning;  I got my medicine yesterday. It helps me with my bipolar episodes. Today I got on Tina’s hour on the 319 meeting. It was about helping the newcomer coming into the fellowship. Trust God, clean house and help others is our code. I’ve been a sponsor for many women since being in the fellowship. Fellowshipping is wonderful. Some women need help, and I give them my number. I can be a good listener for the newbie. Women in the fellowship deal with many issues, such as domestic violence, sexual abuse by a family member, homelessness (PTSD) and trauma, and depression. My heart goes…

    Love Rejoices in Truth

     July 28, 2022 Dear God, good morning. Yesterday Gary had me read his Life Recovery Bible. It says in Corinthians, “Love is the Greatest. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude It does not demand its way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Corinthians is my favorite part of the Bible.   It writes, “Love is more than a feeling; it’s choosing to behave in a loving way.” It…

    “The Peace That I Have Found Within”

    How beautiful it is, the peace that I have found within, for life can be difficult, life can be painful, life can be heartbreaking, life can be unapologetic, life can make your knees buckle, but you can stand tall at the end, have faith In Him. I understand there are many of you that have different beliefs than I do, but we are all sitting on the same sinking ship, we just have different views from which we sit, I pray for us all. My faith is strong, and my prayers are continuous, I refuse to let adversity interrupt my spiritual growth, uninterrupted it shall remain, for the clock ticks loudly. Through trial…

    Experience Strength and Hope

    July 12, 2022 Dear God, good morning. My sister Denise called me, telling me how she had died twice, but the EMTs kept her alive. My sister is an addict whose suffering without fellowship. We both listened to the 319 meeting. She liked it. I told Denise she could be dead right now. On the streets, drug dealers are lacing fentanyl with other drugs. I’ve lost most of my sohba friends. There are a few of us still alive. They found my sister unconscious and unresponsive. I’m so sad that happened to her. I told her that she could have been raped, killed, or died. She wants wonderful help. I…

    St.FrancisPrayer Fellowship

    June 17, 2022   Good morning, God. Today’s reading is about you protecting those who come to you for help, or you Jesus go to them to comfort those in pain. In God’s Promises, it writes: “The Lord is good, giving protection in times of trouble. He knows who trusts in him.” Nahum 1-7 Last year I started to believe in you. It wasn’t always that way. I have been running my whole life. I ran from relationships or to them, and I ran the show. I had to be strong when I was sixteen, but I was amid my alcoholism then. I didn’t even think about you, Jesus. I…

      June 11, 2022 Good morning, God. Today I see Fernando. I miss him. He’s gentle, loving, soft-spoken, attentive, and understands my illness. He thoroughly loves me even though I put him through hell. I stayed out all night, lying, hiding my bottle, fighting with him. Today is different, he doesn’t fully trust me, and I don’t blame him. At least we’re talking, and I’m asking for what I want in this marriage and what I need. And he tells me everything will be all right; I trust him with my heart. I love him with all my soul. Love’s grace strikes again. Today’s reading is about love. It took…
