God comes alongside to help us to navigate the past
2Co 1:3-4 All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us.
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs
When we decide to ‘Turn our wills and lives over to the care of God.‘ He comes alongside to help us to navigate the past We can count on Him to stay in relationship with us as we address the issues we need to address and move forward into a new future.
Then as we progress in the process of spiritual growth He creates opportunities for us to point someone else in His direction so He can help them too.
