God laid a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. The rock you’ve tripped on is Jesus. You stumbled over him while believing the lies of the enemy, giving in to the demands of the flesh, choosing chaos, medicating your pain, and accepting curses. The best thing you’ve ever done is stubbing your toe on the rock, because you stumbled right into Jesus’ lap.
Recovery gives you the opportunity to turn your will and life over to the creator. You’ve stumbled into becoming obedient to follow his path to recovery. Your stumbling in the past robbed and destroyed everything and almost killed you. God is now making you into one of his rocks on which he will build his church to receive another suffering addict.
Lord, I’m so grateful I stumbled over you. I praise you for the grace to stumble into you time and time again. Amen.
Romans 9:33 Matthew 16:18
