Initially it was tough to swallow and my bosses were very apologetic for failing me (as they put it). Still it leaves me without a job before Christmas. I did/do feel very sad for my family more than me. However, there is no anger or bitterness. In the grand scheme of things, it is simply a job. Nothing more. I am grateful that I had no urge to self-destruct as a result of being sober . This in turn, makes me grateful to you all as I gain so much strength and fortitude from this thread and your enduring support. So, thank you so so much !

Another 24 hours of gratitude, patience and sobriety pls ! Its 7:25am here !
Sorry to hear your job is over. Good things will come your way. Keep the Faith.
Sending hugs and prayers your way and for your family.

Beautiful Ducky, CF

Signing in for 24 more hours of HOPE..there's always hope my friends where breath exist Together we are STRONG!!! xo Love to you all!!!!!


CASTING CROWNS

"Voice Of Truth"


Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes to climb out of this boat I'm in
Onto the crashing waves

To step out of my comfort zone
To the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He's holding out his hand

But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again, "Boy, you'll never win!"
"You'll never win"

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
And the voice of truth says, "Do not be afraid!"
And the voice of truth says, "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a Sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand

But the giant's calling out my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again, "Boy, you'll never win!"
"You'll never win"

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
And the voice of truth says, "Do not be afraid!"
And the voice of truth says, "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me (Calling out to me)
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don't seem so high
From on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
And the voice of truth says, "Do not be afraid!"
And the voice of truth says, "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me

I will choose to listen and believe
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth
I will listen and believe
I will listen and believe the voice of truth
I will listen and believe

Because Jesus you are the voice of truth
And I will listen to you
You are...
