#2141 Look For The Similarities

Living life Recovery Reflection

Galatians 1:23-24 There was only this report: “That man who once persecuted us (Paul) is now preaching the very message he used to try to destroy.” Their response was to recognize and worship God because of me!

“Look for the similarities not the differences” If you have ever been in a recovery group you have heard this said.

Do you ever listen to the testimonies of people saved from addiction, compulsion and the problems of everyday life.

“God changed me from _________ to __________”
“I had nowhere to go, no one to turn to I was introduced to a Twelve Step meeting and my life was saved.”
“I was in a dangerous and detructive relationship I heard a testimony shared and it changed my life.”

God can invade our dreadful lives and do drastic and dramatic things to effect our total change for good.

Take time to listen to the stories of others and pay attention to the God interventions that set them on the right path and can do the same for you.
