Don’t look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don’t fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. Matthew 7:13

The world we live in is all about shortcuts. Before coming into Christ-centered recovery, most of us would opt for the easier, softer way to get thru our struggles. Our world values comfort over glory and despise the idea of effort to obtain a goal. The world looks for a quick fix to everything. We are told to take a pill to feel better, and whichever pill works the quickest is considered the best.

Lasting and ongoing recovery requires us to avoid taking shortcuts. We must wholeheartedly apply ourselves to our recovery in order to get what we need. As with anything, if we don’t fully commit to what we want, we won’t be successful in obtaining it. We learn to be thorough in every aspect of recovery. As J.R.R. Tolkien said in Lord of The Rings, “Shortcuts make long delays.”

There are no shortcuts on the road to recovery. No detour is going to help get us to where we are going any faster. We cannot bypass any of the 12 steps. It’s often our pride that demands we pretend we are farther than others on this journey. The road is long and filled with obstacles. There are going to be difficult times as well as times when we experience great progress. Recovery is worth all the effort we put into it.

Today’s Prayer

Father in Heaven, help us to make the right decisions and to never take shortcuts in our recoveries. Help us to see that shortcuts only hinder our progress and don’t serve to help us make progress. May we always know, that for us, there is not a softer, easier way than the way You set before us. Amen.
