There’s a show on television called Halt and Catch Fire. The show depicts the lives of 4 main characters and several other supporting characters. The four main characters are all amazing flawed. They stumble through life doing things that cause each of them to go through difficult times. But they all seem to have this one ability or gift. They are able to look at a situation and see a potential for something completely different and new. You can see each one of them as they process out a new thought. It seems to burden them. They then have a breakthrough and they catch fire.
Isn’t that what Christ does with each of us in the process of recovery? We see something new and exciting but we can’t put our finger on just what that is. We halt and contemplate about what exactly is happening. Something new is being shown to us but we just can’t see the big picture.
When we invite Christ in, he gives us a glimpse of the larger picture. Most of the time this glimpse is just a spark. If we grab hold of what Christ is trying to show us, that spark becomes a flame. Christ catches our life on fire and we become a bright shining light.
Recovery is the process of catching fire. And then becoming that bright shining light Christ proclaims us to be.
