Recovery always involves other people. We cannot move forward in recovery unless we make carrying the message of hope to others an integral part of our life. We discover as we share our story of life-changing character, we will gain new strength to keep going in our own struggle. even when things get tough or don’t go according to our plan.
All I ever wanted in my life was to be guilt-free and happy. I tried many ways, in my own strength to make that happen, wanted recovery on my terms. It wasn’t till I submitted my life to God I discovered that my guilt could only be relieved through His forgiveness and my continued search for His will for my life. My strength could only be revived through the implementation of His plan and continued faith He has my best interest at heart. Always.
in Jude 1:1-3 Jude said,”I am a slave to Jesus Christ and brother to James, writing to those loved by God the Father, called and kept safe by Jesus Christ. Relax, everything’s going to be all right; rest, everything’s coming together; open your hearts, love is on the way! Dear friends, I’ve dropped everything to write you about this life of salvation that we have in common. I have to write insisting—begging!—that you fight with everything you have in you for this faith entrusted to us as a gift to guard and cherish.
My own observation on Day 362 of 2021 is that we too need to RELAX and trust that everything is going to be alright. God has a plan for each of us and in His time it will all come together to help us be the person He is calling us to be if we just put into practice what we have learned about the process of Living Life Recovery.
