Don’t give up before the miracle happens

Extrovert by nature, I don’t need the bottle to articulate. I am just a happy go lucky person, and the grass is greener where I now reside. No need to hide 

Was scared to be sober. Felt booze was always in order. Needed it so I thought, I actually am better without a drop. Goofy I am, and even goofier as sober I stay

I am outgoing, and bubbly it just secretes from within naturally. God has rescued, and revived me in the clarity I have daily. I am a better person dry

I am not in need of that toxic waste, it fooled me into thinking I was better off with its vibrance seeping from within. No need to wet my soul with the bottle of old

For today is yet another day goofy, and authenticity reigns. I do not have to fake it to barely make it. I am alive, and free without that dreaded bottle to cling

Extreme has always been my person, for I am an alcoholic. We thrive off of drama, and chaotic ruins we wade in. The differance is with my Lord and Saviour, I don’t have to dwelve there 

Held captive no more, goofy is as goofy does. Laughter is my new step. I lept into the arms of my gracious Father. For there I find sobriety, one day at a time. Sober fun is easy, less dramatized too. I long since changed my shoes, and was made brand new

Bid the bottle adieu, and dry I will stay yet another day. Less complicated is this barren land. Free of muddy tear stained puddles, made by me. Thank you Jesus for setting me free

Free to commuicate without sloppy, slurring words. Absurdity no more. Goofy I adore! Sober is me! For this I am ecstatic

Don’t give up before the miracle happens 🤙

By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see. Acts 3:16

  1. It is amazing how when we are in our sin we think we are living life. But when we surrender to Jesus that is when true living begins. for He sets us free. Thanks for sharing this post.

    1. This is from my other blog, I feel like I am supposed to incorporate some of the posts from my other blog I used to write from. I had a great following of people, and some of my best writing is there. I just felt stuck in a niche of only writing about my sobriety. So I think I will continue to pull from it, until I have emptied the ones I really like. Then I will close it down. I appreciate all your feedback on here. I am feeling really led to share, and be used by God. I am useable where as there was a time I was such a vital part of the church, and then I let the ways of the world take me down. It is awfully sad how not spiritually strong I was to combat such a pull. I am usable again, and He is completing the work He started! Praise God for it is my story, and He is the author today! 🙏🏻💜blessings Lisa

      1. Amen. Lisa, If God is wanting you to post about your Sobriety keep doing it until He tells you to write about something else. About a two years ago I started to wonder if I should stop writing these devotions because I was not getting a lot of comments. I had a huge following but not many would comment.

        God said to me,” Who are your writing for?” Are you writing to get comments or are you writing to tell the world about my Son and to show people how to apply the word of God to their daily lives?

        As you can see God won because here I am still writing. It is always best to seek the Lord first. If He is directing you in another way then go that way but if He is not I would hold off.

        You have a story that so many need to hear about and when we stop telling our story it profits no one.

        God Bless.

    1. It is cunning, baffling, and powerful. Not in a million years did I see what came my way hard, and fast. It came later in my adult life, and man did I ruin lives under the influence including my own. It is not my friend, and one is never enough, and 1,000 is too many. I am the worst person once that toxic gin enters my mouth. I only wish to speak from experience, strength, and hope. I was a horrible person, but now 7 years later….my family knows this one day at time giving it over to God really works for me. I am know longer the gal that no ones to claim she knows. I hope I am never her again. This is solely contingent on my spiritual house, and daily turning it over to God. When I start taking over, there is nothing but ruins, and decay. So I pray for another day is this freedom! I hate what alcohol did to me. I hate the love I had for it. I am free today!

      Thanks for reading! Enjoy your Monday! For it is a brand new day, and week! 😊

    1. Thank you in all honestly sobriety has given me peace, and serenity. It allows me to feel even the most painful things. I have the tools today to live in a solution that makes me know how to live life on life’s terms. Yes it healthier, but more spiritually for me. I was so spiritually sick. I was so lost in that bottle. I have gained so many gifts in my sobriety. Relationships restored, my sanity, and miracle after miracle. I can’t imagine my life had I not put the bottle down. Thank you for taking time to read, and as well comment! 😊 blessings
