As the clock struck midnight

As the clock struck midnight… I began my 848th day in recovery-remission from my Substance Use Disorder. But first and foremost… I am thankful #JustForToday!!!
Often times, I feel the urge to look at scripture when I feel the number of days clean and sober may have significance (I know… every day does! Duh!) Today, I found something in 1 Kings that I believe is worth sharing and will bless someone…
“But in that land of exile, they might turn to you in repentance and pray, ‘We have sinned, done evil, and acted wickedly.’ If they turn to you with their whole heart and soul in the land of their enemies and pray toward the land you gave to their ancestors—toward this city you have chosen, and toward this Temple I have built to honor your name— then hear their prayers and their petition from heaven where you live, and uphold their cause. Forgive your people who have sinned against you. Forgive all the offenses they have committed against you. Make their captors merciful to them, for they are your people—your special possession—whom you brought out of the iron-smelting furnace of Egypt.”
1 Kings 8:47‭-‬51 NLT
