Growing in the light of recovery

That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter….

~ Doctrine and Covenants 50:24 ~


Our recovery is about growth and development. It is a march that leads to maturity, peace, and freedom. It is a profound challenge for any person to take on and journey through. We are to continually learn to rely on our our Higher Power, on our allies that are supportive of our own journey. The light provides illumination in our own lives.

We’ve spent so long in the darkness of our own suffering and captivity that we initially squint at the evading light of truth and reality. And yet, we realize that our darkness is the very absence of light. As we grow and strengthen in our own recovery journey, we are growing in light and truth. We increase our own light in order to shine in the lives of others who are suffering.
