We are all in one of three conditions:
1. In need of recovery,
2. In recovery, or
3. Through recovery.
This recovery may be something such as lying, porn involvement/adultery, alcoholism, anorexia, bulemia, drug addiction, gossip, murder, judgmentalism, hypocricy, gluttony, gambling, selfishness, fear, worry, timidity, couch potatoism, tech addiction, idolatry, laziness, workaholism, abusiveness, omission, whatever you fill in.
We all, because we are living on a sinful Earth right now, have this sin problem to recover from. Those who have been through the horrors of recovery are amazing and obedient and God is pleased. I am amazed by the strength God provides these valiant and pure souls who humbly admit they screwed up and take action to correct it and repent.
Recovery is repentence.
You can call it whatever you want, but when you recover, and while going through that process, you are working on and succeeding in repenting from your whatever. And that is gorgeous.
How rich and luxurious is the heart and soul of the person who has repented/recovered! How wise is the person who was headed toward eternal separation from God and is now close to Him!
To those who have recovered/repented (and I am right in there too), praise God and I am so very proud of and pleased with you.
Those who are still lying that it is no big deal, it is not too late and feels really great to be on the other side. It is worth every discomfort and the pain will teach more than a thousand lies.
Praise God for recovery and never forget how much Jesus loves you to help you through it.❤
