Picked up my 6 month token tonight at ‘CR’, I believe I am becoming partial to the group. We have praise and worship… and we do a ‘small-group’ meeting, where we separate into smaller group to discuss our issues/ sinful natures. I thank God for the courage God grant me today to discuss the issue of my mentor (unofficial) taking me to a ‘bar’, yesterday, to eat lunch; with my counselor. We discussed all that took place, we discussed the solution, and we also discussed how the event affected me.
I’m very much looking forward to going to Homes of Hope. I spoke with a guy who recently got hired on there who went through the Overcomers program. He is doing well for himself and he has explained how it’s been the greatest decision he’s ever made. He’s got a career for life… he will never be without a job again… One of my on going fears, that re-occurs, is that this is all being done for nought… but I remind myself, what I’m working toward everyday is not for a life somewhere down the road… I mean, it is, but most of all– EACH DAY I live, is for THAT day … Not for a life yet to be. I may not live to see tomorrow… and I wake up anew to Christ each day… dedicating that day to Him… I’m not attempting to live in perfection for 100 years at a time, but… recognizing Him each day… for that day, in all areas of my life, so that my life points to Christ.
