Yes, the journey continues and it is all about living life one day at a time. The only true thing different about living the journey today and living it before recovery is not living any longer in denial. Denial is a big area. In it one doesn’t face the reality of life within him and he also keeps trying to stuff/hide what does creep to the surface.
This morning I am experiencing lots of emotional struggles. I recognize them as Satan’s ploys and have given them to God to handle. He has made it abundantly clear to follow His Light in this even when darkness wants to overshadow all of it.
I got a call last night that my oldest living brother fell from the back of his boat yesterday and broke his pelvis. He is in the hospital in Boise so I’m headed there this morning. I know he will be in a fit because he hates those places, but….
This week is the wrap-up for the on-line training I’m doing in support of one of our recovery groups. It is the one for abuse. It is beautifully done. I wish men weren’t so stubborn about their own abuse for those who have experienced it. We could be so much healthier if this weren’t the case. Yet, as we begin this fall, I do pray the men God is nudging will take the step to seek His healing. This curriculum is superb and God has a path to His Light when we only know Satan’s darkness in this area we have kept in denial all of our life. It is time for the Light to penetrate this darkness.
“Let Your Light so shine before men, that they may see Your Good works, and glorify your Father which in in heaven.” Matthew 5:16.
