Is Recovery Really for Me?

If you are asking yourself this question, the answer is “yes”. Recovery is a term usually associated with addiction, but it is far more reaching.

Recovery can be defined as “a return to a normal state of health, mind, or strength.” The word has its root in the Anglo-French word “recoverie” which means “restoration”.

At some point in our lives, each of us will experience a type of hurt. Perhaps your hurt came from grief, a failed relationship or marriage, dissatisfaction with life in general, sexual addiction, an addiction to alcohol or drugs, or co-dependency (an emotional and behavioral condition that affects an individual’s ability to have healthy relationships).

Whatever the hurt may be, wherever it came from, recovery is for you. Restoration is possible!

The path is not an easy one, but the long-term rewards are worth the journey. In recovery, we “deep dive” into our spiritual and emotional well-being, looking at every aspect of our life through the healing power of Jesus Christ.

Perhaps you are wondering “how do I get started”? The first step is admittance. We have a saying in principle one that goes like this, “Realize I’m not God. I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.”  I’d like to re-phrase that sentence for you as follows, “Realizing that I’m not God, I admit that I need His divine guidance in my life so that my hurts are no longer what defines me. God and God alone, through his Son Jesus, has the power to align my life so that I may experience the fullness of His grace. God has a purpose for me, and His purpose is good.”
