Unimaginable Abundance

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

We don’t do well mentally, spiritually, or emotionally when we are attempting to do this life on our own. Many of us try desperately to go through our struggles alone. We separate ourselves from others and white-knuckle our way through life. We become bitter, and we sink lower into a pit of depression. None of us are immune to the consequences of ignoring God’s Will to be in fellowship with one another. Insanity can be a minority of one.

Two heads are always going to be better than one; two souls are always going to be better than one; two hearts are always going to be better than one. Where two or more of us are gathered in Christ’s name, Christ will be there also. To alienate ourselves from having fellowship in Christ’s name is to lose the experience of being with Christ. The power of Christ is made complete when we are together in a supportive, loving community of Believers.

Ninety percent of having success in recovery is simply showing up and being with others who are in Christ-centered recovery. Our lives used to be a mess primarily because we thought we had the ability to do life without others. God requires us to rely on others in order to have recovery fellowship. He has given us a recovery army, with hundreds of thousands of people, to walk along with us on this journey as we grow to be healthy. God wants us to be healthy, to grow. God has provided for our need to be in community in unimaginable abundance.
