That may be the most important word in recovery – continue. Have you been attending support groups? Continue. Have you been in therapy? Continue. Have you started working the Steps? Continue. What matters is not what you began, but what you continue.
The great apostle never bragged on the start of his journey. It was what he continued that mattered. Among his final words: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7).
Today, focus on one thing in recovery that you will continue. You have made enough well-meaning starts; it is time to continue.
Recovery Step: Some guy named Winston Churchill said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.” Have you started a solid recovery program? Congratulations! Now it’s time to continue.
