For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. Romans 7:15

God is trying to show each of us some very important things about ourselves. Some of us may have been in recovery for a while now. We’ve completed a written inventory of ourselves and read it to someone we trust. We addressed our shortcomings in character defects, and became willing to have God remove them all. We have made amends, and are willing to make amends, whenever possible. Now we are doing daily inventories, and God is beginning to show us things about ourselves we never knew.

In recovery, God is holding a mirror up, showing a reflection of our conduct throughout our lifetimes. We are able to see the irrational behaviors that we never realized were destructive to our relationships. God will never condemn us for what we didn’t know before, but He begins to open our eyes to the senseless deeds that may have originated several generations ago. He will continue to have us dig deeper to heal past hurts that have fueled our dysfunctional patterns.

God wants to get us away from the unwise decisions we’ve made that we’ve become accustomed to and don’t realize we’ve been repeating. Until we recognize and resolve our past hurts, we will continue to remain in a cycle that takes us away from God and closer to the enemy. God is doing a work in each of us to stop these cycles, find resolution to our pain, and move closer to glorifying Him. We will have to identify which behaviors keep us trapped in these generational curses. Our issues didn’t come up overnight and they won’t change overnight either. Recovery is a process; recovery is a lifetime process of sanctification.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, You make all things new again. There are patterns of behavior that, in recovery, I am just now beginning to see. With the help of my sponsor, accountability partners, step study group, and You, I am beginning to see patterns I have been repeating for years. God, Help me to move past those old patterns and start living my life free from the chains of dysfunctional patterns. Amen.
