Recovery is the process of discovering what blocks us from having a close relationship with Christ. Little by little we come to an understanding that there can be no more secret places. Slowly we realize we have to let go of what is hidden. We have to give up all our secret places to Christ. No more hiding our light under a basket. To be fully engaged in a relationship with Christ, is to be light.
Christ is shining a light into dark and secret places. In recovery, we find out about darkness and light. We soon realize things that grow in the dark, die in the light. All things that were hidden are now exposed to Christ’s healing light. A new life is coming forth from the light. And, in this new life, there is no more darkness.
