I made it early to church today and stayed for all three hours. It was the first time going to all three meetings in a long time. I forgot that we switched schedules and I even went to an hour of the other ward to;-)

I am going to attend an SA meeting tonight. I have been looking back at myself an realizes just how far away from the gospel I have gotten over the last 6 years.

Recovery has become a part of my life now. It is a positive work I can accomplish daily. It use to be purely shame but now I see it differently. It is a part of my life. It is a work that creates opportunities for service and a chance to get closer to my father in heaven.

Have a great night everyone.

"hey man, congrats on going to church - that's a great step. hopefully you experienced love and acceptance from them, I always have. Keep up the good decisions and be patient. Remember that recovery is like planting and nourishing a seed and will take time, effort, hope, and patience. Good luck!"

Thank you!    
"I appreciate the kind words. Yes one step at a time and keep making good decisions. They were nice and it was good to be there. It's tough in some ways and great in others. No matter what though its where I need to be."

"If, through our unrighteous choices, we have lost our footing on that path, we must remember the agency we were given, agency we may choose to exercise again. I speak especially to those overcome by the thick darkness of addiction. If you have fallen into destructive, addictive behaviors, you may feel that you are spiritually in a black hole. As with the real black holes in space, it may seem all but impossible for light to penetrate to where you are. How do you escape? I testify the only way is through the very agency you exercised so valiantly in your premortal life, the agency that the adversary cannot take away without your yielding it to him. "
