What an amazing gift we have received from God. God has given us life in abundance. We have the privilege of experiencing all that comes with this life. We have mountaintop experiences and we also go through the valleys of life. Both highs and lows are gifts from our Heavenly Father.
When we examine our lives, we see that while we were in the valley times, God was there with us. Looking at our lives we realize that it wasn’t about what we had done wrong. We see that it was all about what God had done right. In recovery, we learn that it was never about us.
We may have been the orchestrators of our own destruction but God was always near waiting for us to cry out to Him. The gift of new life and recovery is the result of the gift of broken lives. Brokenness is a gift that God allows because it forces us to move away from our selfish delusion that we can do this life on our own. We come to the understanding that life is rigged for failure without God. Our failure to live life without God is one of the greatest gifts God has given us.
