I thank God that His timing is always right.
I have to remember often to forgive myself
It is still hard for me because the party buddies I gave up are my dear sisters and cousins...my entire family, actually. My church family helps, but of course, it's not the same. Family lives all over the same 40 acres as we. I live with the fear that my nephews will encourage my son to 'turn on' as I did them. The consequences and costs of our sin do not go away despite forgiveness. That's a tough lesson to learn.
But to go through the initial processes of recovery again because I used? Lord help me, nothing is worth that to me.
I am praying today for all posters on this forum. Please know that.
