God planted a garden in Eden, in the east. He put the Man he had just made in it. GOD made all kinds of trees grow from the ground, trees beautiful to look at and good to eat. The Tree-of-Life was in the middle of the garden, also the Tree-of-Knowledge-of-Good-and-Evil. Genesis 2:8-9

God provided a perfect environment for us to grow and develop in.

Sometimes we blame our environment our life circumstances for us becoming the way we became. What we need to do in the process of #LivingLifeRecovery is acknowledge that in spite of who we are, how we were raised, our environment, or our circumstances we are now on a journey of Spiritual Growth. We now need to take personal responsibility for the mistakes and failures of our lives. Trust with God’s help He has provided a perfect environment for us to overcome our personal defects and move forward in our lives from today.

I admit that my life is a mess and I am out of control.
