Don’t Let Pride Trip You

Proverbs 16:18 If you are proud, you will be destroyed. If you are proud, you will fall.

 With humility comes wisdom and with wisdom comes honor

Before coming to The Salvation Army Bridge Program I was also in a rehab in Rockingham in Western Australia. Where I learned all the right things and did all the wrong things. I remember the Director said to me “I hope I am around when you finally get serious about recovery. It will be something to watch.”

I never knew what he was talking about but I do now. I was so proud of my achievements I was a relapse waiting to happen. When it did I fell further than I have ever felt before.

The glory for my recovery today goes to God. I am just a guy who made a decision to stop and trust Him.

  • Are you proud of your recovery or thankful to God for it?
