Possessing the right convictions

In this world so filled with problems, so constantly threatened by dark and evil challenges, you can and must rise above mediocrity, above indifference. You can become involved and speak with a strong voice for that which is right.

~ Gordon B. Hinckley ~


Standing a little taller in our recovery requires our voice. It requires us to make a testimony of rescuing our own lives from a physical, emotional, and spiritual shipwreck that substance use has caused. It requires us to posses the right convictions.

Our problems never cease. They do not go away. Regardless of whether we are actively drinking or using. Nor do they subside as we engage in recovery. We are constantly threatened by daily challenges. Therefore, we stand taller and rise above complacency. We have a unique vantage point. Our point of view is moving toward that which is right for us and our recovery.

For us, we become involved, invested, and speak with a strong presence and voice for that which is right for our own sanity. We stand for freedom and we stand for those who still suffer and struggle in their own powerlessness.

It is through our daily disciplines, our daily choosing of the right, and our daily struggles that we are able to succeed in finding freedom. Above all, we choose to possess the right convictions that continually sustain our sense of freedom.


Today’s thoughtful meditation

I have committed to possessing the right convictions for my own life and recovery. I speak with truth and peace of mind that I am working to overcome and strive for freedom in my own life. I become a voice that rises above anything that is mediocre or indifferent. I’ve gain freedom from the shipwreck my substance use had caused.
