Our recovery requires us to have two types of types of vision. We gain an inward focus on our heart, our defects of character, our motives, and our relationship with Christ. We also have an outward vision that allows us to see where we are going in recovery, our relationships with others, and our relationship with Christ. Both the inward and outward visions require us to keep focused on Christ.
When we lose our inward and outward Christ visions, our recoveries are in danger. Recovery in Christ requires us to be vigilant in searching ourselves inwardly and seeing Christ in everything. Recovery is about having hindsight, foresight, and insight. We live in a world full of people who are blind to themselves and to Christ. When we lose vision, we go blind. People who lack vision tend to be very destructive to themselves and others.
In recovery, Christ restores our sight. We no longer stumble through life, blind. We see everything with eyes that focus on reality. We now have insight and with insight comes serendipity, the ability to see the gift in what’s beneath the surface of situations and circumstances. Having vision in our recovery, allows us to see the importance of being proactive and intentional. We were at one time blind to Christ and now we see Him in everything.
