Drift

So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. Hebrews 2:1

When we stop doing what is necessary to maintain our relationship with Christ and others, we drift. In recovery language, this is called relapse. Relapse, like recovery, is a process. Relapse doesn’t occur when we are in the process of recovery. We are either working on our recovery or we are working on a relapse. And, relapse rarely happens all at once on its own. Relapse happens because we drift away from what is real and what is the truth.

The great lie about relapse is that it’s a part of recovery. Relapse is the absence  of recovery. The lie is that at some point in our recoveries we are all going to experience a relapse. None of us have to ever experience a relapse if we are doing everything we need to do for our recoveries. There are times we may want to coast or take a break from our recoveries. It’s during these times we need to remind ourselves that sin never takes a vacation. The enemy is relentless in his desire to take us out. Recovery is about not allowing the enemy to make us ineffective in our walks with Christ and others.

There is no combining recovery and relapse; you’re either in recovery or you’re in relapse. You can’t be in both. We know we are in relapse when we find ourselves drifting away from Christ and our forever family of Believers in recovery. It’s time to stop drifting, anchor ourselves to Christ, and join our recovery groups in the 12-step process.
