What a glorious morning! I slept so well last night. Totally energized this morning. I have worked on my recovery for almost 10 years. The past year once I decided to try to turn my life and my recovery over to the Lord did my recovery take flight. I know that true recovery lays in the tender hands of Jesus Christ. Only through this kind of recovery are glorious mornings like this one possible.
Yesterday, I ran 5 miles for the first time in years. Running has always held a special window into the heavens for me, because of my addictions and my isolation I stopped running years and years ago. That is when I started running from the Lord. Now that my life, is running back to the Lord, I felt a desire to start running again. As I ran, there was a beautiful familiar feeling. The muscle memory were still there, although the muscles aren't yet very strong.
I have found that there are some very simple and true things in my life, now that I am allowing my life to be guided by the Lord. Running, is one of the things that obviously has stood the test of time. There are also new things that I didn't realize I could love, and that point me towards Christ. I love to teach, and I love children.
My life is changing so quickly. I feel a familiar fear to dig my heels in and be afraid. I new stronger feeling keeps me propelling forward into a beautiful new life of happiness, joy, and love.
I want to share my recovery with everyone around me, because the sun always shines here. I believe that if you would be willing to shed off your fear, you could find this happiness too. When you are ready just know that I am here to walk with you on your journey to recovery.
