The Grace of God

When this sort of thinking is fully established in an individual with alcoholic tendencies, he has probably placed himself beyond human aid, and unless locked up, may die or to permanently insane. These stark and ugly facts have been confirmed by legions of alcoholics throughout history. But for the grace of God, there would have been thousands more convincing demonstrations. So many want to stop but cannot.      Alcoholics Anonymous pg 24—25

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.  Ephesians 2:8-9 NLT

Father, I thank you for my sobriety and serenity.  I thank you for restoring my mind and giving me your peace. I thank you Lord for opening my eyes to your marvelous plan of salvation and redemption through the blood of your son, Jesus.   Father, I know that nothing I can do will earn me salvation and a ticket to heaven. That all I have to do is believe in your Son and recieve the forgiveness you offer through his blood.  I thank you for Jesus and the price He paid to bring me into a relationship with you.  I believe in you and I believe in your Son.  In Jesus Name, Amen

  1. Hello there Cheryl,

    I remember those days when I thought I couldn’t stop drinking and I thank God that one day it was “it” for me and the beginning of my recovery…April 6, 2009.
