    God and the Last Step to Faith

    August 24, 2022 Dear God I am frustrated with getting close to You and letting You in. God. I am so close to surrendering to You, to completely letting You in. Being my friend, my confidant, my support, loving me like no human can. I want You in my life, God. To hold me during those oh-so-dark times that I go through too many times. I am so close to God. You are so there for me. It’s not even a whole step I have to make, a half a step or even less. I keep reaching out to You, but it seems I keep missing You. I need You…

    Surrender Your Will

    August 22, 2022 Dear God, good morning. Today’s reading of the Life Recovery Pray Devotional book discusses “Making God Laugh.” It writes, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” I have always been a control freak to protect myself from people. My plans I turn over to you, Jesus. I turn my addiction to alcohol over to you, sweet Jesus. I have not done a very good job making plans in my life. The same book writes, “Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3 We have a saying in our fellowship, “I can’t, He can, I will let him.” Turning my…

    July 15, 2022 Good morning, Dear God. It’s my niece’s birthday, and I can’t believe she’s twenty—seven years old. Where did the time go? Happy birthday Yasmina (baby-gir). I was telling you about my introduction to the fellowship Jesus. My second meeting was at a lecture hall at Harvard University. As I entered the hall, I noticed only men were in the meeting. I saw that these men talked about their lovers. I thought they were compassionate and so loving regarding their wives. So I thought, Wow, men have feelings? Then they had a break during the meeting. Many were gay, and I didn’t know it was a men’s gay…

    Recovery and the Holy Spirit

    June 1, 2022 Good morning, Dear God. We need to go food shopping. Then at eight-thirty, I read Terri my dear God’s letter, and we move to recovery issues about my resentments list. It seems that my resentment list is getting larger. My first resentment was against Santa Claus, and I also put him on my list. Today the Holy Spirit helps in my recovery. Today’s reading writes, “Jesus is your “Security” today in my life. I truly believe that you, Jesus, changed my soul to be graceful, loving, kind, speak the truth, and have love for everyone that’s touched my heart. And for those who drive eighty miles an…
