By His Grace

Archive for the ‘Uncategorized’ Category

I haven’t even logged into WordPress is a long time.  I feel like I’m distancing from this whole thing.  From God. My Bible studies. My prayer. I hate life. I hate the struggle everyday. I’m so sick of working so hard and never seeing the benefits. I see non-Christians daily seeing $200 tips and $150 tips (I’m a waitress).  They are not as nice as I am and they hate people.  I’m tired of seeing all these unbelievers prospering.

I sound sooo ungrateful.  No wonder God doesn’t bless me like that.  He see that I’m not appreciative of what He’s given me so far.  Yes, I’ve come a looooong way when it comes to my previous drug addiction.  But now I’m in REAL life, and it sucks.

I’ve never been a big fan of life.  I have felt this since I was a child.  This heaviness of life has never lifted from me.  Yes, it has a few small instances.  Momentary happiness.  Momentary joy.  Momentary periods of good attitude and positive perspective. 

I told someone today, I hope I don’t live more than 10 years from now.  I really feel that.  I’m not doing drugs.  This is me sober for 14 months and still feel the same way I did when I was using.

My purpose is to stay alive for my son and family.  Otherwise, I’m a waste.

Just wanted to share with everyone that I have started an additional blog at  It will be a bit different than my blog here mostly dealing with living life sober and trying to maintain that life.  I’ve been dealing with much adversity and struggle in my life this past year.  Not sure if the Lord is testing me, molding me or what but I want to be abit more personal and get out the feelings inside with the hope it helps my sobriety and sanity.  It is my hope as well that I may bless someone else, it can’t be all about me you know.  🙂

When we feel down or discouraged with life, remembering who we are in Christ helps bring us back up to a better emotional state. Here is a list of verses and reasons we can experience joy and contentment even if our emotions are telling us different today.

A little about name is Michele and I am a born-again Christian. I was saved as a teenager and graduated from a Christian high school. I am a mother of one son who is the world to me. Despite my upbringing, later in life I fell into a life of self destruction which led me down many dark paths. I am a recovering addict and alcoholic and I have a great passion for Christ and His amazing power to heal even the worst cases. I am living proof of the miracle of God's power to change your life and way of thinking. Nothing is impossible with God.
