IN THE PAST WE WERE LOST
In the past, you did not know God, and so you were slaves of beings who are not gods. Galatians 4:8

NOW WE HAVE RECEIVED GOD’S MERCY
……. you disobeyed God in the past, but now you have received God’s mercy. Romans 11:30
Today we are encouraged to live ‘one day at a time.’ To learn the lessons we need to learn from our past mistakes and failures. God has given us an opportunity through the recovery process to right the wrongs of past and live the future He has planned and designed for us in order that we might bring Glory to Him.
