In recovery we can fool ourselves into thinking we can continue to bury things, without admitting them, taking responsibility of changing them. We think ‘If I just stop doing that I will be fine.’ Unfortunately recovery doesn’t work like that. We discover the tings we thought we have buried forever are actually seeds. They grow and increase in size and when we finally do have to face them, take responsibility for them and deal with them they can be so much harder to change.
Galatians 6:7-10 “Don’t be misled: No one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others—ignoring God!—harvests a crop of weeds. All he’ll have to show for his life is weeds! But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life.
9-10 So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith http://ht.ly/pOIk7
