Isn’t that what Christ does with each of us in the process of recovery? We see something new and exciting but we can’t put our finger on just what that is. We halt and contemplate what exactly is happening. Something new is happening but we just can’t see the big picture.
When we invite Christ in, he gives us a glimpse of the larger picture. Most of the time this glimpse is just a spark. If we grab hold of what Christ is trying to show us, that spark becomes a flame. Christ catches our life on fire and we become a bright shining light.
Recovery is the process of catching fire. And then becoming that bright shining light Christ proclaims us to be.
