This is, very obviously, my first post on this blog and the best place to begin is to better explain the focus of this site.
In the near future, I will publish my story in greater detail. Most of you who will visit this page already know my story. I have recently come out of a 20 year addiction to alcohol and all of the pitfalls that come with that lifestyle. I nearly lost everything, but now walk in victory. On May 25, I will reach my one year sobriety date. Wow, what a year!
On this blog, I want to share my experiences, lessons learned and the saving grace of a merciful God. A big focus is to describe in detail what my eyes have been opened to with regard to the ministry and power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. More importantly, I want to share with as many people as possible how to experience this power in a very practical way in their own lives.
God has reached down and saved me from myself. I am cautious to say that I have been given victory over my addiction. I will say, however, that each day is a “new” victory unto itself. I am on a journey. One that I believe others can draw hope from for their own journeys. I hope you’ll follow this blog, comment, discuss and share. Maybe we can help each other struggle a little less and hope a little more.
