Recovery is not about perfection, it’s about progression.

Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again and again. Anyone who drinks the water I give will never thirst–not ever. The water I give will be an artesian spring within, gushing fountains of endless life.” John 4:13-14

For most of us, life has been a thirsty experience. We have thirsted for love, security, self-worth, and peace. Many of us have tried to quench that thirst through excessive control, addictions, and other inappropriate behavior patterns. But finally we have come to know the One who can satisfy the deepest thirst of every human spirit. We have put our trust n Jesus Christ who gives to us, as he did to the woman at the well, the fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. How do we participate in the joy and peace of everlasting life right now?

I thirst for God, the living God. Psalms 42:2 Do you?

 

Matthew 5:6 says “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” 

thought_for_todayBlessed are they who want to live right and are willing to put in the effort toc gange their lives.  Jesus came to save sinners and all we nned to do to inherit “gushing fountains of eternal life”is believe He is the Son of God, put our faith and trust in Him as our personal Saviour (higher power) and work at being a better version of the people God ceated us to be ‘one day at a time.’ Recovery is not about perfection, it’s about progression.

There is a chorus we used to sing in The Salvation Army “I want to live right (righteousness_ that God may use me at any time and anywhere.”

Is that your desire today? To be used by God to ‘Be different and make a difference.” Even if it takes you ouside ofyour comfort zone.
