Readers, this is one of the more real valleys of recovery. The more I learn about the Christian walk in recovery, the more I realize that it’s a journey of sober joy. I can always rejoice in the Lord, because He is always good, but that doesn’t mean I’ll never struggle. I’m not saying that none of my posts are real, but this is more personal than most. I want you to know that I’m struggling but fighting. I know that I have been equipped with the whole armor of God for this recovery battle, and I know that it’s a battle worth fighting. This is going to expose a lot of thoughts that have been brewing for the past few weeks. I haven’t been sure how to say it, how to share it, and how to write it. I thought about titling it, ‘My Body is Struggling,’ but God made me a whole person, not just my body.
This is probably a little crazy as this is almost my blog highlight day from the Blog Hop from Kristy, but I thought that it would be a great way to share with other bloggers as much of me as I can, the ugly, the good, the wonderful, and the struggle.
Also, thank you to Jenn, Arman, and Laura for constantly letting the rest of us share our eats, the sugary, the sweet, the sour, the salty, and maybe even the bitter food (a.k.a Black Coffee.) on the WIAW linkup! 🙂
My body is struggling to recover. The journey is up and down. I’ve been weight restored for a while, and I had a normal cycle about 2 months ago, but I haven’t had one since then. Thankfully, God is teaching me so much about not being anxious and trusting Him more, but I’m definitely still growing in that area.
