Life is cool

I talk waaaay tooooo much when I am in a good mood and with people I am comfortable with. Goodness, but I need to practice shutting up! But that should not be the first thing I tell you tonight. I should tell you that I have been sober 18 months, and I got to celebrate that at CR today. It was soooooo cool.

A few weeks ago I had a revelation about how I tend to identify more with my struggle than being a believer in Jesus. I am working on the believer in Jesus part. It has been so good over the last few days to feel like I have once again begun celebrating Jesus and being a child of God. I mean it sort of makes me want to dance around my apartment a lot.

There were bouts of struggle today, but not really of complaint. I am kind of surprised. It is interesting for me to work through a negative emotion or thought without complaining. I feel like it is more of me casually observing my feelings and surroundings. Okay, this is where I am at, this is how I feel about it, and this is what reality might be. It is a different way of working through things. I poured on a lot of prayer.

No, what you see was predicted long ago by the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on my servants—men and women alike— and they will prophesy. And I will cause wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below— blood and fire and clouds of smoke. The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red before that great and glorious day of the LORD arrives. But everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.’ – Acts 2:16-21
