We believe in God the Father, We believe in Jesus Christ We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He’s given us new life We believe in the crucifixion We believe that He conquered death
We believe in the resurrection And He’s comin’ back again, we believe So, let our faith be more than anthems Greater than the songs we sing And in our weakness and temptations
We believe, we believe- Newsboys

The definition of Believe is :accept (something) as true; feel sure of the truth of.  

Reminds me of Faith.  Having Faith in something is to accept it as being truth. In this life, well my life as I can only speak for myself I question at times what I Believe or not. Strange as I do not question my Faith. I know where it lies.  I have seen the fruits of Faith. I have never been let down by my Faith.  I may have been disappointed in the final results of situations that I had Faith in, but never doubted in the end they weren’t the right ones after time.

 I was speaking with my sponsor today and we were talking about expectations when we have them, sometimes they end in heartache. At the end of the day we are to only have expectations of our self, and we can find at times will disappoint even who we see looking back at us in the mirror. Perfection is only for one, God.  What do I truly Believe in right now?  I quoted some of my favorite “Believe” quotes above.  

What else do I Believe in?

 I Believe in myself. I  gratefully Believe in the words of a few people in my life and know I can take what they tell me to heart, head and soul.  I Believe I will stay sober one day at a time. I Believe in my girls. I Believe I am a mother who strives to do the best she can. I Believe I am a hard worker. I Believe I have a huge, bright heart once again, because for so long it was hard and dark. I Believe the Mission of Faith at the Beach is coming to fruition. I Believe I will succeed because success is not how much you have but how much you can give back.  I Believe that addiction can be overcome and you can live a life on the road to recovery. I Believe nothing in my life happened was in vain. I Believe God is using my mess as his message. I Believe in Recovery, lifelong for anyone who desires it. I Believe in Forgiveness of self and others. I Believe I am forgiven.  I Believe that life is not to be lived yesterday or tomorrow but today in the Present, God’s gift to us daily.  I Believe because I have the Freedom in this Country to be able to.

I am surely not sharing this because I claim my life is this pretty picture wrapped up in a big bow. No, I share because IF I speak Positive then I will perform Positive. If my heart is grateful then I will be grateful. You can always find something to be grateful for. Begin with the eyes you are using to read this now.

I am grateful for my life and humbled by it as well. Nothing more, nothing less.  I Believe in gratitude, humility, caring, responsibility, willingness, openness, and honesty.  I Believe that sometimes things will get worse before better, but there is always a lesson in the pain. I Believe There is a rainbow at the end of the storm.

May the angels above surround you all with hugs, kisses and lots of love….

Please keep me in your prayers as I will pray for you all…..

Peace, love and Prayers…. Amy C.
