As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God.  2 Timothy 3:3

Before we came to recovery, our old pictures were focused on ourselves. We delighted in taking many pictures of ourselvies. In recovery, we turn the camera away from ourselves and towards the beauty all around us. Those old pictures no longer represent who we are today. We are changing our narcissistic frame of view towards a Christ-centered way of seeing this life.

Our cameras are pointing away from us and towards Christ and others. The longer we’re in recovery, the more our focus is on Christ. Christ becomes our new selfie. We learn to keep Jesus in the frame of our lives. Our Christ pictures are never blurry or off-centered.

We live in a very narcissistic world where selfies are the norm. Recovery allows us the wonderful gift of having a new subject to capture in our life pictures. We stop pointing the camera at ourselves and towards the one who created us. Christ is the ultimate selfie. In recovery, we see more of ourselves in Christ and more of Christ in ourselves.

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.
