One of the things I am certain of in recovery is that everyone in recovery eventually comes face to face with God. It is at that time they have to make the most important decision of their lives. A choice to follow God or not follow God. It is at that time I believe people either get freedom from dependencies and true lasting life transformation or they retreat back to their hurts, habits and hang-ups.
In John 8:36 Jesus says”if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.” Freedom in recovery can only be achieved in one way. Step 3 says “I made a decision to turn my will and life over to the care of God.”
As we go through the process of recovery and grow on our spiritual journey the most important step we will take is this one. Putting Jesus where He belongs in our lives.
