Some of us haven’t yet put away childish things. We can’t get back our lost childhood. Demanding immediate pleasure and relief from pain is a defect that ultimately brings unhappiness. We need to let it go and allow God to address the deep, unmet needs from childhood as we work through recovery
Month: August 2015
Does anyone have an excuse for not believing in the Holy Spirit? All through the Bible we have evidence of His involvement in the world and in the lives of people in the world. Right at the start of God’s Word we read that when the earth was formless He was there.
Jesus promised that after He left, the holy Spirit would bring power, real power to overcome the trials and tribulations of life. In daily relationship with Him, with His help there is no problem to great, no life is too far gone that it cannot be made new.
The source of all life and true light of the world is the source of all recovery. True recovery can be ours when we believe what God says, renounce our tendency to do the wrong thing and receive The One God sent to help us.

Bad behaviour as a result of our addictions and compulsions interferes with our ability to manage our lives.
There’s nobody living right, not even one, nobody who knows the score, nobody alert for God. They’ve all taken the wrong turn; they’ve all wandered down blind alleys. No one’s living right; can’t find a single one. Romans 3:10-12
Bad behaviour as a result of our addictions and compulsions interferes with our ability to manage our lives. Yet, accepting our powerlessness and lack of control can be the biggest stumbling block to believing in and trusting God in the process of spiritual recovery.
None of us have the power to change in our own strength. The first step in the beginning of establishing the right foundations of humility and helplessness to move forward in our journey of recovery and faith.
Bad habits may satisfy us short-term, but there
consequences are long-term. Relapse may make us
feel better for a moment, but it damages the progress
of the process of our recovery.
You may be looking for ways to prove you don’t have a problem. Most people who enter into the process of recovery hang on to some fact or belief that proves they can continue life the way it has always been
Recovery requires committing yourself to the process of change. Nothing will stay the same – God promises “It will get better.” EVENTUALLY
