A Program For Growth
We pray that you’ll live well for the Master, making him proud of you as you work hard in his orchard. As you learn more and more about how God works, you will learn how to do your work. Colossians 1:10
In every walk of life maintaining enthusiasm is one of the main challenges.
Personal coaches/motivators have become popular for the purpose of revving up waning enthusiasm, among other things.
Intoxicants are sometimes used: energy drinks, no-dose etc. Many drugs have been introduced for the purpose of relieving tension, giving ability to do extra special things and going the extra mile.
There is at tendency on completion of The Twelve Steps to relax, lose enthusiasm for learning more, stop attending meetings and stop completing the steps required for maintaining spiritual growth. It is essential in the process of recovery to remember ‘weakening our self-disciplines leads to relapse.’
Recovery is a life-long process of spiritual growth. We must grow in the ways of the Lord and continues to learn maintenance skills for the upkeep of our body, mind ans soul. Indifference kills! We must pray for a vision of God’s will for our lives and when we receive it stay focused on the goal.
What The Bible says
God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love–like Christ in everything. We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. Ephesians 4:15
Like infants at the breast, drink deep of God’s pure kindness. Then you’ll grow up mature and whole in God. 1 Peter 2:2
Grow in grace and understanding of our Master and Savior, Jesus Christ. Glory to the Master, now and forever! Yes! 2 Peter 3:18
Lord in heaven keep me from looking for and following the ‘easier, softer way.’ Save me from self-pity and indifference and help me stay focused on Your goald for my life.
