Sitting here, crying on my knees.
“God take this craving away. I don’t need it, I don’t want it, make it stop!”
“Just help me make it through this night, that’s all I’m asking.”
“One more hour clean, help me make it another hour, please.”
I begin begging for strength, serenity, courage and wisdom.
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
I repeat it over and over until I can no longer speak.
I don’t want to lose my freedom, everything I’ve worked for, my future.
“God please give me a miracle..”
And then it happens, the craving subsides. I no longer feel the need to drink, for tonight.
It’s amazing what happens when we turn to God and pray from our heart.
