Recovery is a Choice

meSince this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives. Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish.

No matter how we ended up in the process of recovery the choice to keep on going is one we consciously made. On making the choice we need to adapt the process of living the Twelve Steps in every area of our lives. We need to start living life as God wants us to live. Standing up against our old ways of thinking, acting, and feeling. Resisting the temptation to fall back into our old ways so we can live the life God is leading us in and completing His purpose for us through His strength and guidance.
