God Remains In Control

There are time when it seems as if everything is going wrong. Throughout history, nations and individuals have struggled through disasters, hardships, dangers, sorrow and adversity.

Before becoming despondent, however, acknowledge the greatness, glory and constancy of God. He called the word into existence, He created man and has kept vigil over His creation, caring for us through the ages and sheltering us in every disaster.

He is the Creator God who will never abandon His workmanship. Hold onto His promises; place your entire trust and faith in the living Christ and through Him you will survive the dangers and adversities.

He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Col 1:17

-- Yes, even though it seems like no one understands what we are going through, it's such a wrong attitude. First of all, there are scores of others who are currently going through your life of addiction recovery and scores more who lived through it to be victorious. We are NOT alone. God is with us. How do I know? I mean my life is so rough, how do I know He is there? Well, a few days ago we read in our devotions that we need to see the little blessings in life. Count them. Each day try and find one more than the day before. You will eventually begin to see God really is here with us and we need to wake up. He truly is in EVERY part of our lives. He celebrates the victories of passing on a drink and is stroking our face praying for us when we make the wrong choice and pass out from too much to drink. He IS there.

Have you seen Him today? I have!

Grace for Each Moment
