The day that i hope changes it all...

Aug 24, 2008 - 2 comments

You know it really wasn’t that long ago that I was a normal person. It seems like that was forever ago……

I went to church with my family this morning and I feel like it has changed me and opened my eyes to how bad of a path I was on.

Bowing out and letting my wife take the kids to church on Sundays mornings was one of the first things I did wrong while I was wrapped up in taking pain pills. Though I would have told you that the pills give me so much energy….for some reason I stopped doing everything.  I think they give me a sense of energy when in fact I am as run down as can be..

I got up this morning and started to get ready for church with the rest of the family. My daughter asked “Where are you going” . She is so used to me not going.
When we walked into the church I was overwhelmed with joy and a feeling of “this is where you’re supposed to be”.  My wife and kids were so happy to fit in with all the other family’s like we always had before the pills.

We were in no rush to leave, my daughter (7 years old) ran into her friend from school and we talked with the parents.  Usually I would be in a rush to get out of anything and anywhere I was at so I could get home and worry about the pills.

I know it doesn’t seem like much but for the last 3 days without the pills, I have gone right back to normal life and I’m so happy I don’t know what to do….I cant believe I did this to my family….I really was lying to myself about this condition that makes me need the pills. What a bunch of crap….And how selfish I have been taking pills every 2 hours trying to make myself feel great at all times.

The $40.00 dollars I would usually blow on pills today…I spent taking them to breakfast after church…..A million times better spent…..

WHAT IN THE HELL HAVE I BEEN DOING…….Well thank God this happened when it has and there is time…..time to fix at least 2 years of damage…

Thanx for letting me vent…

God is good and there is no condemnation in Jesus man,
