My prayers go to all those who are suffering from the horrible disease of addiction. I have been in recovery for 9 1/2 years, my husband the same. My sister in law celebrates her 15 year recovery from Heroin. None of us thought this was possible, but we realized that we could not do it on our own. Once you let that go, you can begin to heal. I just wanted to say that it gets better the further away you get from it. One day at a time. Ask for help, and keep asking! Keep praying! He's always by your side! Everyone suffering and in recovery you are always in my prayers. Kashmir358

The Lord Is Thy Keeper

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help [cometh] from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord [is] thy keeper: the Lord [is] thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth,
and even for evermore.

- Psalms 121: 1-8

ThankGod I'm still alive.God's with me and he must have a plan.God never wants his child to continue to live/die in addiction.That's MYchoice.No matter how I say "I just can't stop".Man is given choices by God, God never expects us to go thruour pain alone.He is there for us and expects us to be for one another as long as we don't put ourselves in harms way.I know my loved ones feel harmed,hurt and pain I have caused.With serious counseling I need toget to the root of why I feel PAIN anduse drugs to escape. CONTINUES>>>NEXT ENTRYI can't look to God for healing if I don't cultivate my relationship with God and build my spirituality on a sincere,everyday basis.I need a recovery program to stick with NO MATTER WHAT.Recovery programs DO WORK butwith vigilence,honesty and FAITH.I know that they guarantee recovery if I follow suggestions and the path of other recovering addicts.Often families lose faith and hope,and are tired of being hurt,so they distance themselves as far aspossible.Tough love.Enabelers may be the only persons the feel still love them.It may helpthe addict,but addicts only feelabandonment, dispare,hopelessness.We don't love ourselves.Without my parents tolerating mefor many years,and I have only skimmed the surface here,I don't know where I would be.NA and GOD will not enable but continue to always be there until I can finally see for myself as well as my loved ones that it's ok to be an active part of my life, SOBER! I am only able to speak on what I have experienced and what has worked for me in the past.Recovery programs work if you stay with it. So why do I continue to use? I do not follow my own advice and knowledge.Like I don't want to quit,but there's NO successful addicts.Period.Please pray for me for answers to why I continue to do this.I know how to get recovery so what is my problem??

Dear God-

Please send your angels to Christine. Help her to find the peace and recovery that I want for myself.

Please send your angels to everyone who has been touched by this terrible disease. Help all of us to have gratitude for the gift of this day. Grant me strength as I go out from here to do your bidding. Thank you for all you have given me.

Prayers and Affirmations from the Writings of Paramahansa Yogananda

"I am submerged in eternal light. It permeates every particle of my being. I am living in that light. The Divine Spirit fills me within and without."

"God is within and around me, protecting me; so I will banish the fear that shuts out His guiding light."

"Perfect Father, Thy light is flowing through Christ, through the saints of all religions, through the masters of India, and through me. This divine light is present in all my body parts. I am well."

"I know that Godís power is limitless; and as I am made in His image, I, too, have the strength to overcome all obstacles."

"I relax and cast aside all mental burdens, allowing God to express through me His perfect love, peace, and wisdom."

"Teach me to feel that I am enveloped always in the aureole of Thine all-protecting omnipresence, in birth, in sorrow, in joy, in activity, in meditation, in ignorance, in trials, in death, and in final emancipation."

"Thy light of goodness and Thy protective power are ever shining through me. I saw them not, because my eyes of wisdom were closed. Now Thy touch of peace has opened my eyes; Thy goodness and unfailing protection are flowing through me."

"My Heavenly Father, Thou art Love, and I am made in Thine image. I am the cosmic sphere of Love in which I behold all planets, all stars, all beings, all creation as glimmering lights. I am the Love that illumines the whole universe."

"Fix your mind inwardly between the eyebrows on the shoreless lake of peace. Watch the eternal circle of rippling peace around you. The more you watch intently, the more you will feel the wavelets of peace spreading from the eyebrows to the forehead, from the forehead to the heart, and on to every cell in your body. Now the waters of peace are overflowing the banks of your body and inundating the vast territory of your mind. The flood of peace flows over the boundaries of your mind and moves on in infinite directions."

"I will help weeping ones to smile, by smiling myself, even when it is difficult."

"I will radiate love and goodwill to others, that I may open a channel for Godís love to come to all."

Heavenly Father, Prince of Peace, Please be with all the addicts inside and outside the rooms of recovery. Give them guidance and strength to know there is a better way of life. Please be with the families who are suffering because they don't know what to do to help. The ones helplessly waiting for their mother, father, sister, brother, son, or daughter to come home, not knowing if they are dead or alive. Father please bless the babies that are born into this disease without a choice. We are all only one drug away but with you all things are possible. It is possible to stay clean! I know because with you by my side I have done it for 4 years 3 months and 14 days. Thank you Lord for all you are doing in my life and all the ways you are using me for YOUR good. In Jesus Name I pray,AMEN
