Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, Philippians 3:13


There are times in our recovery journey that we are going to experience being stuck. Recovery is like walking on a conveyer belt that’s tilted at an incline. When we pause in our recovery and stop moving forward, we go backward. We are either moving forward in recovery or moving backward. There is no such thing as standing still in one place.

Our walk with Christ in recovery is not an easy one. Restoration is a messy business. Each step forward in recovery is hard-earned progress. With progress comes hope and more understanding of the journey that lies before us. Recovery is difficult and sometimes sliding backward seems like a better alternative but we know that sliding backward is a quick step towards darkness.

As we move forward in recovery, we find that the incline becomes less steep. Our steps are lighter because we are carrying less baggage. We also realize that Christ is propelling our recoveries forward. What we once thought of as difficult, we now experience with understanding and wisdom. Recovery is a process of moving forward towards that day when we see Christ face to face and the process of sanctification is complete.

Father God, keep me focused on You. There are too many worldly things competing for my attention. Keep me from being distracted by the influences of this world so that I may always be guided by You. Amen.
