The Same Strength

Gratitude List 11/12/2018

My list today reflects on the strength I get through my greater power. I initially sought this power to overcome my addiction. Little did I know how much strength I would get in return.

Today I am grateful for the strength that keeps me off a bet.

The same strength that allows me to accept the things I cannot change.

The same strength that gives me the courage to change the things I can.

The same strength that pushes me through that gym door.

The same strength which assists me in dealing with whatever life throws at me.

The same strength that enables me to hand over my defects that stand in the way.

The same strength that helps me do the next right thing, especially when I don’t want to.

The same strength that supports me when I am physically, mentally or spiritually struggling.

The same strength that remains with me even when I do my best to take control and disconnect.

The same strength that helped me face my past.

The same strength that allows me to forgive instead of resent, to love instead of hate.

The same strength that gave me the fearlessness to face my past.

The same strength that gives me hope.
