So what do we do in the midst of the storms?
- We pull in our life boats and keep them secure until we really need them.
- We toss over the unneccessary cargo. In other words, Let go and Let God.
- We lower our anchor, meaning we dig deep into our faith and hold on to His hand.
As long as I've had faith, I've had hope. But there are times when "neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and the storm continued raging" that I felt as if my hope was lost. Finally when I came to Al-Anon, my spirit settled down and I began to regain some order and sanity in my thinking and my life that allowed me to again believe I have every reason to hope for myself and my addict.
As I go into this week of thanks, I will be sure to take time to reflect on just what God has done for me in the past year.
He restored me to sanity and continues to give me Hope.
