I wish I had a great answer. It does make me think about a necessary tunnel that I have recently come through. I entered it about 6 other times in my adult life. I always convinced myself to turn around because of self-doubt. My inability to see the end result in my own mind created doubt that coming through the other end was even a possibility for me.
What made it happen this time? I stopped relying on myself for the strength to get through. Renewing of my mind, so to speak. I believe a little more each day that He is strong when I am weak. I believe He has a greater plan for me than I have for myself. I believe I am an overcomer, not because of me but because I believe, I am adopted into a family of overcomers.
Here I am. On the other side. I am freed from the bondage of addiction, celebrating one year smoke free.
There is power in moving forward, through places where we can’t even see around the corner.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of
things not seen.
