When I was a kid, our family drove great distances on vacations from Texas – to California, Tennessee, and Ohio. I often slept for hours in the crowded car. How could I do this? It’s simple. I knew the driver. With Dad at the wheel, I always felt safe.
I have found recovery to be the most exhilarating ride of my life. And it can become very frustrating and even scary – if I forget who is in the driver’s seat.
I love the simple words of Martin Luther: “Pray, and let God worry.” And of Corrie Ten Boom: “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
If you are afraid of relapse, I understand. If you are worried that your addicted spouse will fall, no one can blame you. But with God behind the wheel, you can be sure of this – the journey ends well.
Recovery Step: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5).
