James 1:19 My dear brothers and sisters, pay attention to what I say. Everyone should be quick to listen. But they should be slow to speak. They should be slow to get angry.
Instead of blaming God when things don’t go the way we think they should we need to learn to ask two questions.
- Why did God allow this to happen?
- What is He wanting me to learn from it?
Through the process of recovery, His Word and intervention God is teaching us to live our lives for Him. That includes His correction when we get it wrong. If you never make a mistake you will never get it right.
- What things have happened to you during the process of recovery where you are now aware God was teaching you something?
