The Bible says “I’m a mess. I’m nothing and have nothing: make something of me.” Psalms 40:17 When we first arrive a rock-bottom we feel pretty worthless and can relate to the verse above. But the first step to beginning the recovery process is admitting the mess we are in. Usually mess that has been created by our own bad attitudes, beliefs, and choices.
Recovery is a process of clearing up the self-created mess so we can change our lives with Jesus help. Psalms 79:9 says You’re famous for helping; God, give us a break. Your reputation is on the line. Pull us out of this mess, forgive us our sins– do what you’re famous for doing! Committing to following through on the Twelve Steps, and allowing Jesus to do His will in our lives until completion is the biggest decision any of us make in recovery.
