Farther along

Energy to live. I am finding energy to live as I heel. I sure have a lot more than three years ago. It is odd tonight I tried to engage in a conversation of how I have started to have a lot more fun now that I am so much less of a “fun” person than I used to be. I take such little time to celebrate major victories in my life. Like the fact that I made it through a really hard five weeks without wanting a drink or that I no longer desire to watch porn on any level. I used to be really obsessed with sex. Not so much anymore.

It was good to teach on bitterness and anger today. I have learned if I pray the serenity prayer and meditate on it, it is a good antidote to the bitterness and anger. Sometimes I wonder if the people around me think I am a really bitter and angry person. The people who are not a part of CR. The people at CR know I am just engaging my deepest emotions. Not hiding from what lies in me, but talking to God about it. Three years ago, I had a much higher opinion of myself – also a much less accurate one.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the ones I can, and wisdom to know the difference!

One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could touch and bless them. But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering him. When Jesus saw what was happening, he was angry with his disciples. He said to them, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them. – Mark 10:13-16
