Life on earth is so short. No amount of fame, money, brilliance, talent, charisma or good looks can bring happiness. They’re all transitory. I know that if God hadn’t intervened in my life, I would have eventually been overtaken by addiction and despair. The difference today is that I HAVE God in my life. My God is bigger than my problems. It is when we let our problems become bigger than God that they can consume us. This is why they say in recovery meetings: “…we get a daily reprieve contingent upon the maintenance of our spiritual condition.”
I am grateful to have God today, and forever.
