My Thoughts on . . . . Being in Recovery.

There are so many concerns that deal with Recovery. A lot of people look at Recovery as a good thing, where an individual is making the best of the opportunity for restoration, a chance to make right what he or she allowed to interfere in their lives and cause unwanted and undesired consequences. I do believe in second chances because God gave me many second chances, and I finally got it right thanks to God and Recovery.

But I know there are those out there that say, and think, that when someone messes up in life once they’ll always be that way, and the typical stereotype is the drug addict. Yes, there are some who can’t overcome, being so overwhelmed and ensnared by their addiction that it’s hard to overcome the struggle. It’s deeper than a lack of desire or just not able to overcome. It’s a sin problem, which also means it’s a spiritual problem as well. Recovery, when operating in its full capacity of treatment, acknowledging, providing the tools and applications through its processes can be extremely effective under the careful guidance of those who are qualified to treat individuals with these issues. And don’t think that it’s just drug addicts who can benefit from this kind of treatment: I’m talking about alcoholism, eating disorders, sexual integrity issues, and so many other addictions. Recovery can change a person on how they see themselves in life and how God sees them. Establishing, and re-establishing relationships is crucial to the process of Recovery as the individual commits and applies himself/herself totally to being free and walking in freedom from their issues. They can’t escape the issues or struggles of life but they can certainly put structure into their lives such as disciplines and accountability where there was none to make a big difference in their perspectives on life. No matter what a person’s addiction or struggle might be, I believe they can overcome the challenge with the right mindset, the right battle plan, the right weapons, the right leadership, and the right accountability. With these five key strategies Recovery can, and will, be a focus in moving in the right direction.

Just some thoughts from a follower of Jesus Christ who prays for the goodness and hope in Christ Jesus to be experienced and received by all of His children, as well as those who desire to see what God will do. Being a light is the best way to draw the attention of the world if the light is working in and turned on in our own lives as children of God. I’m just saying . . . .
