STEP ONE I ADMITTED MY LIFE WAS A MESS AND I WAS OUT OF CONTROL

1 Corinthians 10:13 No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.

It is common in life when we fail to blame our circumstances of other people.

The truth is “I am responsible for my actions and reactions.” No one else can make me do anything I don’t want to do. Whether I do the wrong thing or the right thing is ‘my choice.’ Most of us don’t really want to hear that. Most of us have a hard time accepting it and most of us have a hard time doing something about it.

Recovery is not always an easy path to follow. Many times in my spiritual walk it would have been easier for me to go back to my old ways, where I felt more comfortable than to keep moving forward in recovery.

Moving forward is a choice I make every day in my life. The worst days in my recovery have all been better than my best using days.

To develop self-control, we need to understand God’s guidelines for right living. We do that through reading His Word daily, prayer, meditation and seeking counsel from others on our addictions, compulsions and overcoming them.

  • THINK! THINK! THINK!
    Matthew 12:37Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.”

  • TURN IT OVER TO GOD
    God says 2 Corinthians 12:9 “My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.”

  • TRUST AND OBEY
    1 Corinthians 10:13 No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.

Prayer: Please God help me to always remember where I came from.
