I always thought it was a novel thing to thank God for certain things. I mean I really don’t want to thank God for letting me grow up poor, because I didn’t like it and it has caused money issues today. Overall, I’m sure it’s made me value some things more to a certain degree but thanking God for going to bed hungry never really crossed my mind as a kid.
It seems at any interview, awards show (Except Kayne…. he was too drunk to remember to Thank God first before slamming Taylor Swift)
at any rate….Award Shows, Interviews, Whitney Houston, Uhhhh, You get what I mean…Most say……
I’d like to give all credit to God
I’d like to give credit to God for giving me the ability……
Makes me wonder…….
Did Chuck Liddell ever say…….
I’d like to Thank God for giving me the ability to beat your ass…..
Ahhhh but wait….He’s dancing right now so it would probably be more fitting for him to Thank God he’s made it this far in the competition.
Anyway some humor to get Tuesday night off the ground.
Thanking God on a daily basis is important, but more important is in asking God for the help and direction I so desperately need. For those of you who may be confused, I don’t want you to be under the notion of God in the sense of the church God you may have heard about, but God, as I understand him.
I have found the 3rd Step Prayer to have become a useful tool because it is direct and to the point…..
Take my will and my life.
Guide me in my recovery, show me how to live.
Pretty simplistic and to the point. I mean I can get caught up asking God and Thanking God for all kinds of things to the point I can lose my concentration. That becomes frustrating and in turn I lose my desire. When desire becomes lost, that is a dangerous route to be on.
My wife’s mother is moving tomorrow. She is going to Louisiana to be with family there. I will miss her, but I know that it is for the best for all involved. This relationship has been a source of worry and stress for my wife for over a year now. I told her last night it was someone elses turn to do the worrying, that she had done enough. My wife is already talking about going down there for the Thanksgiving Holiday, which I don’t mind, it’s just that she hasn’t even left yet. I will make sure she gets to see her over the holidays.
Take Care….Bob D.
