One Step at a time

Matthew 6:27-31Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them. “If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.

Stop worrying about how you look and start paying attention to how you are acting and reacting to the things God is doing in and through your life. He has got you!

Matthew 5:16 says “Let your light shine in front of others. Then they will see the good things you do. And they will praise your Father who is in heaven.”

Step 12: Having gone through these steps and discovering the importance of an individual relationship with God through Jesus, I will try to live according to His principles and to lead others to a personal relationship with Him.

*People who know us are watching how we are living, observing the changes in us since entering the recovery process. How we act and react to life can have a big effect on others’ decisions to enter a life of recovery.
