Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I see all the time where people throw around the phrase "I'll pray for you" when someone is sick or how I just prayed to God when I was in trouble in the past. We shouldn't just be praying when we need something from God and using Him like this quote, as a "spare wheel" and only in case of emergencies. He should be the "steering wheel" of our lives, directing us and guiding us. We should be praying when life is good and praying is bad, praying to thank Him. I will be the first to admit I have been guilty of this before, I used to do it all the time. When I was drinking and using, that's pretty much the only time I prayed, for God to get me out of situations, or I would be making deals with God. But that is one thing I try not to do today, to use God as a spare wheel, but as my steering wheel. That's all I have for today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
