Together We’re Stronger

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. – Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NLT

We are not alone on this recovery journey. God has placed people in our lives to walk beside us. We are all on this journey with each other. We pray for each other, offer comfort, as well as confront one another when we become too complacent. God has given us such an amazing community of people in recovery. Praise God, none of us are on this journey alone.

Before coming into recovery, being alone and isolated was for many of us the norm. When we walk through the doors of recovery, we quickly learn that we never have to feel alone again. We have this great crowd of people who walk beside us on the journey and that makes feeling alone a choice.

Because we now know that loneliness is a choice, we also have a responsibility to ourselves and Christ to grow deep and meaningful relationships with each other.  We can’t grow wide until we grow deep. Growing deep in our relationships with Christ and others is how we show the love of Christ to others who are stuck in thinking they are alone. We now get to demonstrate that there is a way out of isolation.

Father in Heaven, thank you for putting people in my life who I can experience deep, meaningful relationships with. Help me to be an example for those who struggle with isolation and feeling alone. Thank you Father God for the community and forever family of recovery. Amen.
