‘ Only be the strong and very courageous, that thou may observe to do according to all law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou may prosper wherever thou may go. This book of law shall not depart out of my mouth; but thou shall meditate through day and night, that thou may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shall make thy way prosperous, and then thou shall have good success. Joshua 1:7-8 Very good stuff this morning! I feel confident with my conscience contact with God today. I have faith that what is meant to be will be according to his will. For, if I was left to live by my will, I would probably be dead or in prison. I must live this way today. I choose to live this way today. You see, this is the point of this blog, to show those out there that there is another choice you can make. There is another way to live and it is fun, I do laugh a lot, it is interesting, and it can be done. When I was running and gunning, it felt like the only way to keep on living. I felt to stop was to die. I was scared, lost, and confused. Smiling on the outside, but dead inside. Burnt bridges, closed doors, and paid company became all I knew. That has changed! It can change for everyone! I have successfully changed my stars and it all started with me waking up on the beach dope sick and in pain. My soul was cold as ice and lonely! I wanted something different. I chose to live that day. I chose to break the fucking mold on recovery! I chose to do things they said I couldn’t. I chose to give it up to God. The point is I made a choice. Not an easy one to make, but neither was the one I made when I started putting needles in my arm either. It wasn’t easy going in the trap everyday not knowing if I was gonna walk out or be carried. It wasn’t easy graduating Marine Corps boot camp with honors, but you guessed it, I did it! To not make a choice at all is also a choice. I hope one that you never make. Life is good today.So, today I challenge all of you reading this, to make a choice. It doesn’t make a difference what it is as long as it is positive. Stretch and do something different! To those of you out there in the grip of it, I pray today is the day your life changes for the better as mine has! God Bless!
