Relapse

Status

As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness. Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor. I warned you when you were prosperous, but you replied, ‘Don’t bother me.’ You have been that way since childhood—you simply will not obey Me! Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.

Proverbs 26:11 ~ Proverbs 29:23 ~ Jeremiah 22:21 ~ 2 Timothy 2:22

Hebrews 6.18-19

For a large portion of my drinking years I spent a lot of time ‘RUNNING AWAY’ I destroyed relationships. jobs, accommodation opportunities, my reputation, my credibility, my integrity all to accommodate my addiction to alcohol and abuse of other drugs.I blamed everyone else and my circumstances for me being the way I was. I don’t remember ever directly blaming God but I did believe in my drinking days He was not for me because belonging to Him had too many strings attached. A life changing encounter with the Lord changed all that and opened for me the gateway to Glory. He showed me how to change, how to stop allowing my addiction to dominate the direction of my life and how to stand up and take responsibility for my mistakes. Through a promise to me in which He said to me “You do not have to live like this anymore. Follow Me and I will lead you.” I put my life in His hands and the result has been phenomenal

In today’s scripture it says .‘GOD CAN’T BREAK HIS WORD.” On that day He gave me His Word and I am living proof He doesn’t break His word and because of that I am hanging onto his promise to me with both hands each and every day of my life.

THANK YOU LORD FOR MY RECOVERY!

Running Away

Jonah ran away because he was afraid to measure his manly strength against being what God wanted him to be. He felt he could map put his own destiny remote from difficult jobs like the one God appointed him to.

Like Jonah our first response to the difficulties of recovery could be ‘RUN’. But the longer we persevere in recovery the more we realise it is more comfortable to travel with God in the direction He has mapped out for each of us than it is to flee to a lost existence.

Jonah 1:3 Jonah got up and went in the opposite direction to get away from the Lord.
