the right motives

Going through the process of recovery we often are more concerned about appearing to do the right thing than we are about doing the right thing.  Sometimes we think we can take short-cuts, cut-corners and get away with it.

God understands our motives for everything we do. He sees our heart  and He makes it clear recovery is a process we need to go through in order to arrive at our destination.

It is easy to fall into bad habits, to justify doing the wrong things, to forget why we came to recovery in the first place. When we do we are on dangerous and need to reset our focus on Him. He will help us to do the right thing if we ask Him to.

Prayer: Lord help me today to check my motives
and when they are wrong turn to You for help.
