Today:

I am a recovering compulsive overeater, abstinent by the grace of God one more day at a time.  For details, check out my food journal.

 

 

From today’s entry in Voices of Recovery:

“Abstinence is a new life, not in theory but in practice. It means following suggestions, listening to someone who knows more than I do about living abstinently.” — For Today, p. 203

 

 

From Proverbs 26:

Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow,
an undeserved curse does not come to rest.”

 

From my reading through the Bible, currently in Psalm 111 through 114:

111:9, “He provided redemption for his people;
he ordained his covenant forever—
holy and awesome is his name.”

 

112:4, “Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.”

 

113:3, “From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.”

 

114:7, “Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,
at the presence of the God of Jacob”

 

 

From The “Big Book” of Alcoholics Anonymous, page 12:

“I stood in the sunlight at last. It was only a matter of being willing to believe in a power greater than myself. Nothing more was required of me to make my beginning.”
