I'm at war/battle with the Devil. He is busy trying to break my spirit but God is on my side. Every time I feel like I'm going to break, I remember He is right there arms stretched wide and all I have to do is reach out and grab hold.
I got up singing Christmas carols with Shakeira(my baby) It's amazing how powerful, a worship and praise song can be. It reminds me of all the blessings that God has stored upon me and get me back to a place of gratitude.
I sat on my new living room furniture this morning with a cup coffee and looked around me. What a site to behold. God has blessed me with needs but He has given me some of my wants too. In July 2008 after I relapse I lost my furniture (due to none payment)and I was almost through paying for it. On Saturday I went back to Rent A Center to see what I needed to do to pick up where I left off. It's true. They will put the money you've already paid in, towards something else. To make a long story short, I got a brand new black living room suit. It looks like leather but it's not. All I have to pay is $571 and I've already given them a portion of it and I'll try to pay the rest by next month. To them, it was used because someone had it before me. Whoever had it, didn't have it long because it looks brand new. Either way you look at it, it's new to me and a GREAT deal. There's so MUCH to be grateful for and trust me, I am!
