James 2:5 My dear brothers and sisters, listen to me. Hasn’t God chosen those who are poor in the world’s eyes to be rich in faith? Hasn’t he chosen them to receive the kingdom? Hasn’t he promised it to those who love him?
Recovery has nothing to do with how much money you have, where you went to school or where you grew up. We are in recovery because God chose us to be here. We are the people who are meant to be here and He has others in our communities He wants us to reach out to and invite others in.
One of my favorite movies of all time is Monty Pythons ‘The life of Brian’ Especially the scene where they are going up for crucifixion and the guy says “Nah, they said I could go free.”
Most of us would do anything not to go through what we have to go through to get recovery and keep it but we are in the right place.
- Thank You Jesus for putting me right where I need to be to find recovery.
