God is a god of second chances. We get to have a new start in life. God has given us a new beginning. We are not the same people who walked through the doors of recovery for the first time. That old person we once were is dead and gone. Our memories of what came before only serve to glorify God in our testimonies.
God is a god of resurrection. He delights in creating something from nothing. Our resurrection is a testimony of how much God loves us. God loves us so much he gave His son to die for us, and now we also get to rise from the dead in full glory to Him. We are the resurrected children of a resurrected King.
God is a god of renewal and change. As time goes by in our recoveries, we look back and see the changes we have experienced. Not only are we no longer the same people we were when we entered recovery, but we are also no longer the same people we were when we celebrated our first year in recovery. Each year we look back on the many changes God has created in our lives. With each passing year, we see growth and change. We are no longer the lifeless creatures we once were. God resurrected us from the dead, and now we are His new creation.
