Our hurts, habits and hang-ups are progressive. The more we indulge in them the more they control us. In the beginning our compulsions leave us feeling content. They often give us a false sense of power. For many of us we felt more worldly and more intelligent. In the end the compulsion consumes us.
We listen to that voice that tells us we can handle all the insanity going on in our lives. We allow our thinking to become darkened because we are sure we know what is best for us. We believe we are misunderstood. We take on a victim stance and we harden our hearts to God and others. The more we buy into this lie the worse our lives become. Life, ever increasingly, spirals out of control.
In Christ centered recovery Christ gives us the opportunity to see our hearts desire from God’s point of view. Slowly and over time we begin to see changes happening in our lives. Through the recovery journey we are transformed into light. God’s perfect and wonderful light.
Jesus spoke to the people again. He said, “I am the light of the world. Those who follow me will never walk in darkness. They will have the light that leads to life.” John 8: 12
