700 Club

Today I joined the 700 club; 700 days sober club. I'm so grateful for my recovery!  It truly is a miracle that I have come as far as I have.  Never in a million years did I ever believe it possible to have the relationship that I have with my Savior, or the knowledge of my Father in Heaven's plan. 

Prior to beginning recovery three years ago I hated myself.  I believed I was a waste of skin and wanted to not just die, but I wanted my spirit to be exterminated because I believed my very existence was an offense to God.  I know this sounds extreme - but that is literally how I felt and I feel it important that people understand how dark life can get when in the midst of addiction.  Now however, I know that I am a beautiful daughter of God.  I know that He loves me.  I know that He has specific purpose for me on this earth and I feel that my life now has direction. 

The biggest and best miracle however though is the love that I know feel for my Savior.  I love Him at a capacity that I never thought possible.  I never thought it possible to love someone so much that I cannot see or touch and that I have no real tangible memory of.  This truly is a gift for it is this tender love that I have for my Savior that enhances my progression and growth. 

The more I love Him,
The more I want to be like Him. 
The more I love Him,
The more I become like Him.
The more I love Him,
The greater chance to return to Him.

... and counting...

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
