One Day at a Time - Devotional Series - Week Four - Living One Day at a Time

During this month’s series we have discussed living one day at a time with:

  • Fear & Anxiety

  • Control

  • Trust

This week I would like to explore what it means to live one day at a time.

I know at times it may have been difficult to think about the questions and to remember some past hurts. I feel the same way. Even though I am on a healing journey with God and my husband, Patrick, I still have days of difficulty. That is where prayer comes in, daily connection with my Heavenly Father. Healing occurs in this way, one day at a time.

Alcoholism doesn't have to be active in my life for me to be effected by it. The process of healing has forced me to remember things I thought had been buried long ago. In the beginning of my journey, over a year ago, I didn't know what God held for my future. I didn't know my passion for writing was actually a gift from God for me to use to help other women who deal with alcoholism or addiction in their family.

Through prayer, I have discovered God's desire for me to be free from the shackles of addiction. Although, I do not have an addiction to alcohol or drugs, I have been held hostage by how the addiction of my loved ones or others in my life have reached me deep in my soul. In order to live freely, I had to turn my will over to God. I had to admit my life had become unmanageable due to fear, anxiety, control, and distrust. I am powerless over the enemy of addiction, but God is not. God has all of the power and strength to help me overcome my issues.

Living one day at a time, simply means, I turn my will over to the care of God every day. I admit my flaws, issues, and hurts to him and ask him to take over on my behalf. Some days the fear and anxiety shows up, but I recognize it and immediately turn to prayer. Other days, the need to control rears its ugly head again, but I see it and instantly turn to prayer. Distrust can appear suddenly, but I identify it and turn to prayer. Seeking help from God first is living one day at a time.

Take each day, each minute, each second, as they come. Be in tune to my feelings and reactions. When Satan reminds me of my old habits, old feelings, and old ways, I make him leave my mind in
