~~James 1:5 (NRSV)
Tomorrow I quit smoking . . . AGAIN. This is the 8th time I will quit smoking. The last time I was successful for 5 years and 23 days. I am not really well prepared. Last time I went through a program. I bought things to help me with the crave. I journaled. I was prepared. This time I have not done any of those things. I have not really thought it through very well.
I don’t have carrots. I don’t have grapes. I haven’t counted my puffs or examined my relationship with nicotine. I do have God, though. I do have this blog. I will ask God daily to make me strong, and I will blog when I need the spiritual strength to stand strong. I want to do this. I need to do this.
Lord, please give me the wisdom and strength to help me slay the Nicodemon.
