Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. When I was drinking and using I was always looking for the answer to life...how to fix all my problems. I was thinking somehow I was the solution to overcome all the obstacles I had created for myself. I was nowhere NEAR the solution, I was the problem. I was lost and wandering in the dark, thinking I was alone. I was calling out for help, while God was by my side the whole time, sometimes carrying me through my hardships. My occasional foxhole prayers meant nothing, I just needed help for the moment. But when I was truly ready to surrender He was there. He was there ready to carry me out of the hole I had dug so deep. Today, He is my hope, my light, my strength, my comforter. He is always with me. He loves me and never leaves me. Deuteronomy 31:8 says, "The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. " I truly believe this today. That's all for today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
