Proverbs 28:26 Anyone who trusts in himself is foolish. But a person who lives wisely is kept safe.
“I only trust myself!” “I can do it!”
Two of the most self-deceptive statements we have all said at one time or another in our lives. We have been on this road together for a little while now and I want to ask you the question: Who do you trust?
Some of the most valuable things I have learned, implemented and shared in my recovery and life are things I have learned from other people. None of us are here by mistake. We are here because it is where we need to be and God has brought us here.
Proverbs 3:5-7 says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”
I believe we need two solid relationships in our life. One is with someone who is further down the recovery road than we are. Who can help us not to make the same mistakes others have made. And, someone who is on our level, walking with us who will keep us on track and keep us accountable on a day to day basis.
