At work today I was listening to YouTube (as usual) and a TD Jakes clip played…
‘You didn’t get to pick what shaped your world. But you do get to pick what stabilizes it’
This to me is so timely and powerful. I have been looking for stability in my life for a long time. I’ve felt like I was white knuckling life got the last 20 plus years. All day. Everyday. Trying to control everything.
And what brought me the stability that I’ve been looking for? A little 12 Step Christ centered program called Celebrate Recovery.
I’ve found a new stride. My new normal. It’s a pretty happy place. Not without challenges. Not without struggles. Not without upset. That’s just called life. And because of that I’ve learned 12 stepping, living the 12 steps daily and by God’s Grace, I can cope in a new way.
Finding stability when life is always changing. Finding stability when the unexpected happens. Finding stability in an uncertain world.
No longer do I need to live in secret, silence or shame. No longer do I worry about what someone may think of my situation or of me. As a mother, sister or friend.
This stability that I thought was so far out of reach, wasn’t. And as I continue to let go of control and trust God and His plan for
my life, the more stable I have become.
And the more stable I become, the more I need to be stable.
Stay on this ride with me, the best is yet to be.
My journey continues…
