We’re all going on a great adventure. We’ll be traveling in unknown lands, so we’ll have to travel light. We can’t take any baggage from our past. At times, the path is going to be rough, lots of climbing steep hills and traveling over rocky terrain. There will be times we will think we can’t take another step. Other times, we will marvel at the distance we’ve come.
On this adventure, we are not alone. Christ is always there with us. Showing us new and different things about ourselves. He will be there as a guide and protector. Any snakes that cross our paths, He will trample on. Any wild bears run at the sight of Him coming. Even at night, Christ is there with us. He shines brightly in the vast darkness. Our adventures are not easy ones but with Christ, we know we are heading in the right direction.
We also get to experience this adventure with lots of wonderful friends. Some will be there to encourage. Others will hold us accountable. Everyone on this quest will share in both the positive and negative experiences, the easy to travel valleys and the mountains fraught with fatigue and the feelings of not being able to continue. We will all be on this mighty crusade together called recovery. It’s not going to be smooth sailing all the time, but it’s always going to be an adventure.
