Stay with God! Take heart. DON’T QUIT. I’ll say it again: Stay with God. Psalm 27:14
NEVER WALK AWAY FROM SOMEONE WHO DESERVES HELP; your hand is God’s hand for that person.Proverbs 3:27
IF YOU GIVE ENCOURAGING GUIDANCE, BE SURE THAT YOU DON’T GET BOSSY; if you’re put in charge, don’t manipulate; if you’re called to give aid to people in distress, keep your eyes open and be quick to respond; if you work with the disadvantaged, don’t let yourself get irritated with them or depressed by them. Keep a smile on your face.Romans 12:8
GENTLY ENCOURAGE THE STRAGGLERS, AND REACH OUT FOR THE EXHAUSTED, pulling them to their feet. Be patient with each person, attentive to individual needs.1 Thessalonians 5:14
Hebrews 12:12-13Take a new grip with your tired hands, stand firm on your shaky legs, and mark out a straight, smooth path for your feet so that those who follow you, though weak and lame, will not fall and hurt themselves but become strong.
We should encourage each other “Comfort and encourage each other with this news.” 1 Thessalonians 4:18
Step Twelves says “I will try to live according to His principles and to lead others to a personal relationship with Him.” Hosea 12:6 says “Come back to God. Live by the principles of love and justice, and always be expecting much from him, your God.” 2 Peter 1:5 says “You must learn to know God better and discover what he wants you to do.” Living according to God’s principles requires coming back to Him day by day, seeking His will for our lives and doing what He guides and directs us to do.
Learning much in recovery is of no value unless we learn to live our lives comforting and encouraging one another,
