In recovery, it’s important to spend some quality time with Christ. Spending time with Christ does not have to be anything elaborate. We just make some time to be with Christ to read, pray, and listen. Many of us have gotten in the habit of being busy all the time. We’ve become addicted to staying busy. It’s become our norm, so much so that slowing down and taking time with Christ seems foreign to us.
We also need to be in fellowship with other Believers each day. God created each of us to be interdependent, not independent. We each have a God-designed need to be involved in the lives of others on a more than just surface level. God made each of us to experience meaningful relationships. We are God’s people who were made for significance and purpose, especially in our relationships with one another.
It’s going to be important in our recoveries to slow down and take time. We need to stop being human doings and start being human beings. There is a need for each of us to just be where we are in this moment. Taking time to go deeper in our relationships with Christ and others is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves and our recoveries. When we slow down and take time to be with Christ, we begin to hear His gentle voice and to understand the depth of His great love for us.
