Wednesday 7/22/09 - "GOD IS GOOD"

"GOD IS GOOD"

I know that no matter how things may appear at any given moment - no matter how difficult - God is good, cares about me, cares about those I love, and is always ready to scoop us up into His loving and powerful hands.

I am grateful tonight as I so often repeat - for prayer. I am grateful that I believe in the power of prayer, that I pray often, and that I have been given proof in seeing prayers answered in my life and the lives of others.

I am grateful that others are so loving and willing to pray for me and my loved ones. I know that I have been prayed for, I feel those prayers, and I watch the results of those prayers play out in my life.

I am so very grateful as I also often say - that God gave us the Alcoholics Anonymous program without which we would perish. I watch lives transformed in front of my very eyes. I watch God do for me and others what we cannot do for ourselves.

I am grateful that after a very, very long day, I will be able to lay my head on my pillow tonight knowing that God is completely in charge and is holding all of us in His loving hands.

Good-night and God bless,
Prayer Girl

For quite some time I have been following your blog, and I ask you, as so often you repeat, to continue to so often repeat this gratitude list.

I am praying for you and all your loved ones still... So grateful that you are willing to share the difficulty and the grace and miracles.

God be with you and Steve and your kids today as you witness His weaving and his beautiful creative and healing powers!

Thinking about you and hope that any troubles will pass soon.

How serene the power of your beliefs...I love the thought of appreciation of the simplest of things as a pillow to lay your head on, a reminder, that it could not be, but is and you are grateful, what a gift

I often feel that same gratefulness that God gave us AA, and that we just happened to be born in the first century of humanity that offered a widespread solution to alcoholism. It breaks my heart to think of all the millions of men, just like me, who failed their families because they had no help with their addictions. "Angela's Ashes" comes to mind... And I realize that without AA I could be just as bad.

Take care of yourself PG and of Steve. I don't know what is going on, but you seem to realise you are safe in Gods hands so that is good. Pass my regards on to Steve, I will respect his request not to be contacted. But tell him that it was he who introduced me to the blogging group and that was a kindness I will never forget and am deeply thankful for. I respect him enormously and will miss his wisdom.
