We never feel like we have enough. Yet a day turns into a week; weeks turn into months; months turn into years. Take the first step — set a short term goal. But do it today. Don’t put it off until tomorrow!
God has work or ministry for which you are to serve His purposes. Begin each day by asking, ‘What, Lord, would you have me do today‘?
Learn to hold on loosely to the things of this world, or they will hold on to you. Another question you can ask is, ‘What, Lord, would you have me to do with this possession?‘ It isn’t wrong to have things. Our troubles start when things have us.
When God gives us insight, it allows us to develop discernment. Don’t ignore it! Write it down, or share it with someone. Ask God how He wants you to use your insight to help others or yourself.
We are created for connection. Yet we get focused on ourselves or isolate because relationships have been hard or we don’t know how to connect. Pray for courage to connect and know and that our relationships will bless us and help us in our recovery.
Sometimes we dread meeting new people. Groups, parties and potlucks hold us captive to our fear of not measuring up and failures. Begin to look for opportunities that God provides for His purposes. Recovery meetings are a necessary and fundamental part of your healing journey!
