Living Life Recovery Reflection

Romans 3:23 Everyone has sinned. No one measures up to God’s glory.

If you are like me and have been reading along, thinking to yourself, “This is too hard.” RELAX!

None of us are Why? Because God was looking after me and the counselor could see that. good enough for recovery. That’s the beauty of it. Even though we are not worthy enough, we have done some terrible things, committed some terrible sins. God forgives us.

I want to tell you about a time that should have ended my recovery journey. When I was in rehab we went out (on the bus) for a BBQ in the park. I and two other guys decided we were going to go to the local pub. We did and we drank. When we got back to the rehab the counselor called us individually in to see him. The two other guys got expelled from the program, packed their bags and left, there and then. I got sent to bed to sleep it off.

Why? Because God was looking after me and the counselor could see that.

 

– Is there a time in your life when you didn’t deserve it God has intervened in your life looked after you?

 

Prayer: Lord today help me to relax and trust in You

The Word For Recovery

1 Chronicles 16:24

Sing to God, everyone and everything! Get out his salvation news every day! Publish his glory among the godless nations, his wonders to all races and religions. And why? Because God is great—well worth praising! No god or goddess comes close in honor. All the popular gods are stuff and nonsense, but God made the cosmos! Splendor and majesty flow out of him, strength and joy fill his place.
