i recently attended the graduation of a young woman i have known since birth. she completed her second year in the drug court program and i was honored and very proud to be there.
.
the kauai’’i drug court program, established in 2003, was designed to be an alternative to incarcerating non violent substance abuse offenders.
.
as we all know, our prison system is crowded and lacks sufficient funds to maintain humane & productive ways to hold our part of society that struggle with a life of crime.
.
this program aims to divert some of this population and funnel them into more of a rehabilitative setting within community. there are a strict list of rules which ask for a whole lot of accountability and self determination. it is by far not an easy program, and asks for a serious commitment to sobriety and making healthy choices. the pay offs become another chance at a life that they longed for while they were being dictated by addiction.
.
the ceremony took place in the very same courtroom, with the very same judge they all sat in front of for less favorable conditions.
.
and here they were, receiving their certificates of such great accomplishment, in a space of standing room only.
.
each of the six participants gave speeches that were some of the most real & revealing, courageous & honest speeches i have ever heard. they spoke from the depths of a pain, the allowing of self forgiveness, and a gratitude to this program and to those that have loved them over and over again in conditions so difficult to do unconditionally.
.
family & friends who traveled this grueling road of addiction with their loved one shed tears for a day many thought might never come.
.
prisons are a small handful of many different answers.
.
this is what we parked next to when we pulled into the courthouse parking lot that morning.
.
a beautiful flower blooming so strong in the toughest of conditions.
.
how appropriate.......
.

(Matthew 26:75)

The biggest lie a Christian could ever believe is that God doesn't love you or that you have let Him down.
Peter loved the Lord deeply and in his heart he wanted to fulfill the promise he made to Jesus that he would never leave Him. (Matthew 26:33) But Jesus, knowing all things, knew that Peter just did not have the courage yet to keep that promise and so He told him, "I tell you the truth, Peter--this very night, before the rooster crows, you will deny three times that you even know me." (Matthew 26:34)
But Peter insisted that he would rather die than betray the Lord.
(Matthew 26:35)
But when it came time to put up or shut up, Peter was not willing to put up after all. And after denying Christ for the third time, the rooster crowed just like Jesus said, and Peter remembered the words of the Lord and as the verse says, he went away and wept bitterly.
One could only imagine how Peter must of felt - denying the Lord of glory.
But the Lord did not stop loving Peter nor did Peter let Him down. The Father who is in heaven saw Peter's past, present and future - He saw Peter when he made the promise (his past), He saw him when he was full with regret (then his present) and He also saw him when he was preaching the gospel, leading many to Christ and gave his own life faithfully for the gospel (his future).
As humans, we can't see what the Lord can see; He knows who we will become. He knew your failures before He called you, before He loved you - and as His child you can't do anything to change that. So rebuke the devil when he come at you with those lies!

I beat myself up often about things I did or didn’t do a year ago, a month ago, a day ago. Heard this nugget today and I am forgiving myself and moving forward. Be courageous and love yourself 💕

Reflecting on 2017 and preparing my mind, my heart, and my direction for 2018.
I pray this year to live out of my heart and not my feelings and emotions.
I have so much growing and learning to do and I am full of inward flaws but that's what God's Grace is for.
It's important we stop living for others and live for what matters. It's not really who we are but whose we are!
Strength comes from weakness and failures but that strength does not come from ourselves. If it comes from us alone, it won't last. I seriously can do nothing apart from God. I may not be where I want to be but I am reminded constantly that I am not where I used to be.

The ultimate example of grace in action was the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross. A Holy God suffered at the hands of evil to provide the grace to forgive the unforgivable. We have only to receive that forgiveness and let it flow to others. #grace #forgive #forgiveness #grace2forgive #love #loveothers #loveGod #Jesus #redemption #hope #hope #john316
