Fellowship and sharing words of hope

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another... ~ Hebrews 10:24-25 ~ We begin to learn the fellowship aspect of recovery. Coming together with other individuals, sharing our stories becomes a contagion of hope. Hope ...

Genuine and authentic repentance

but declared first to those in Damascus, then in Jerusalem and throughout all the region of Judea, and also to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, performing deeds in keeping with their repentance. ~ Acts 26:20, ESV ~ When we turn from our shipwrecked lives. When we turn toward a Sovereign and Divine Heavenly Father. What we ...

Transformed by the love of Christ

For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. ~ Colossians 3:3, ESV ~ Christ's love is one where it transforms us. It changes everything about who we are. Christ's love is perfect and steadfast. He cares for us, despite our failings and wayward ways. It is through Christ's love that we ...

A pattern of good behavior

Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, ~ Titus 2:7, ESV ~ When we were under bondage of our substance use, we exhibited character defects of manipulation. Hiding our substance use from family and friends. Even attempting to walk in the illusion we are hiding our ...

Fulfilling His Promise

Read and meditate on Genesis 21:1-21  Pray and meditate on patience as we wait on the Lord to fulfill His promises Sarah laughed at the prospect of her ability to bear a child this late in life (see Genesis 17:17 and 18:12). However, at the appointed time, the Lord fulfilled his promise. Despite the ridicule ...

This is His day and I will rejoice

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. ~ Psalms 118:24, ESV ~ Everyday we engage in recovery, let it be a day of celebration. This is what the 118th Psalm reminds us of. As we surrender our life and will over to a Sovereign God, we are given ...

Looking up and moving on

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. ~ Ephesians 4:31-32, ESV ~ The greatest obstacle to serenity, happiness, and successful recovery is being stuck in the mire of bitterness, ...

Prescription for panic and worry

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. ~ John 14:27, ESV ~ There is no doubt that life in society today is filled with anxiety, stress, and worry. There is uncertainty we all ...

Actions reflect our personal beliefs and values

But whoever has doubts is condemned ... For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.  ~ Romans 14:23 ESV ~ Recovery helps us rediscovery our own personal values. These values become our reflection of what we believe. They help us live a true, authentic, and practical life. This is not only demonstrated by our ...

Without complaining

Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, ~ Philippians 2:14-15, ESV ~ Our natural tendency is to complain about life. Whether it is a minor inconvenience and annoyance, or, a difficult situation. We ...
