Consistency beats intensity every time. Give it enough time, and you can transform your body, your mind, your marriage, your finances, your attitude.
And your recovery.
Maybe that’s what Paul had in mind when he wrote, “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15:58).
Recovery Step: Identify one simple thing you can do in the area of recovery. Then do it every day.
