We are in a bitter struggle. Temptation, evil, and despair crashes in on us from every front. Some days I want to give up and head for a beach to spend the rest of my days. This desire weakens when I remember we are winning. I heard this line in a movie the other day and it struck deep. It reminded me of our mission to spread light among the world. Though darkness may attack without relent, the forces of…

I will be working through what’s called my inventory for the next six weeks or so. The basic idea is to write down all of the major hurts, habits, and hangups of your life. It’s a major step in my recovery process. While this is not what I would call a fun part of the process, it’s a necessary part. I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the life I want without it.
