Don’t overthink things.
Confucius said, “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
Recovery is like that. We never fall because we don’t know what to do, but because we don’t do what we know.
Here’s my advice – seek God more than you seek recovery. In my experience, when I seek answers, I get frustrated. But when I seek God, the answers find me.
In one of Jesus’ most famous quotes we find these words: “Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).
Recovery Step: What Albert Einstein said in general applies to recovery specifically: “If you can’t explain it to a six-year-old, you don’t understand it yourself.” Keep your program simple. But more than doing it simply, simply do it.
