Mark 14:38 Watch and pray. Then you won’t fall into sin when you are tempted. The spirit is willing. But the body is weak.”
We need to be aware in the process of recovery of our strengths and our weaknesses. We all have weaknesses in some areas of our lives and we are strong in others. In areas where we are weak, we need to make sure we avoid putting ourselves in vulnerable situations.
One of the reasons I live in Victoria instead of Western Australia is because in W.A. I have too many contacts from my past. After all my years of recovery, I do not believe I would ever be tempted to relapse. But, in early recovery when I was susceptible and vulnerable I am not sure I would still be where I am today had I continued to live in Western Australia.
- What lengths are you willing to go to avoid vulnerable situations where you may be tempted to relapse?
Prayer: God today I commit to going to any length to maintain my new life and spiritual growth.
