Courage to change the things I can

Life has handed us numerous opportunities on a silver platter covered in the finest gift wrapping paper with a nice bow tie and a bright red cherry on top of it to boot. The problem is that these opportunities reside inside an ugly, torn up cardboard box labeled as “Problems”.

The only way out is through.

I heard that at a meeting a very long time ago and it stuck. It means the only way I can get out of a situation is by living through it. As an alcoholic I always try to go around or turn back from problems.

My life has changed because I have “gone through” several scary and difficult problems in my life without running away. It was always hard and prompted me to pray everyday, several times a day.

Trust me, prayer works.

Don’t think so? Try it.
