The reason many of us fail in life and in recovery is that we have been blinded to what works – meetings, disclosure, therapy, spiritual disciplines, Step work, accountability.
If you think you can do recovery any other way, you have been blinded by pride, which the Bible assures us, “comes before fall” (Proverbs 16:18).
If you want to become what you’ve never been, get where you’ve never gone, and do what you’ve never done, remove the blinders.
Recovery Step: Open your eyes to the things that work, then pursue them with all your heart.
