Tonight at my addiction recovery meeting we discussed step 2 which is Hope. Heavenly Father provides tender mercies to us to show us how much He cares and is watching over us. Listening and chatting with the sisters afterwards I realized how grateful I truly am for my life. I have a great life. I and my family are healthy. We have a home to live in. My husband has a job, a minimum wage job, but a job nonetheless. We have the Gospel. We have testimonies of Heavenly Fathers love for us. We are truly blessed and watched over. We have trials, yes but we are happy and moving forward with our life. A sister tonight gave a great analogy. She said that we are like sailboats, to move forward in the right direction we must have a little wind pushing us. I loved that. Sometimes we may feel as though it is a hurricane pushing us but keep enduring. Keep fighting. Keep loving and trusting. Heavenly Father is aware of you. He will send you tender mercies to give you hope and strength. He loves you. I know He loves me. I love my Heavenly Father and truly thank Him for providing for my needs and wants even during my hurricane winds of my husbands pornography addiction.
