Tomorrow night at B-Together Recovery we are continuing our four week series on STEP 6: We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
This step is about willingness to put in the action we need to put in to change our lives to bring them into line with God’s Word and his Will. Tomorrow night we are looking at being ‘READY FOR ANYTHING’
For most of us, recovery never works according to our plan. That’s how we got into trouble in the first place (following our own plans) Recovery is about learning to follow God’s plan and getting ready for the unexpected.
B-Together Recovery is a safe place, where people can come and investigate God’s promises for them, at their own pace. EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
God sees spiritual maturity in us. It only comes through reading, meditating and applying His Word to our daily living.
Love the Lord God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence and energy. Mark 12:30

Where this journey began. I remember the counselor interviewing me and saying “you can’t go on the program, your attitude is all wrong.” I thank God everyday for His intervention and for changing my attitude.
When we talk too much and don’t listen others think we know it all.
Someone told me once ‘you need to listen twice as much as you talk.’ Not sure if that’s the right measure. One thing I have learned however is in our quiet time with God we need to take as much time as it takes to listen to Him and what it is He wants us to do – Then we need to DO IT!
People will tell you things that sound right, sound safe and sound easy. It warns us in the ‘Big Book’ of ‘Alcoholics Anonymous’ as we go through the process of recovery we will always look for the ‘easier, softer way’
I want to tell you there isn’t one.In recovery we need to learn the truth, apply the truth and follow the truth if we are eager to change our lives and the lives of those we love most.
We will all experience storms in our lives, recovery won’t change that. What recovery does change for us is our options. Where we used to run to our habit of choice we now have the option to run to Jesus in the storm, confess our need and trust him to take care of us.
