Wars Waging

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4

There’ a saying in recovery that describes our thinking when we are new to recovery. Very simply it’s, “the committee in my head.” Many of us know too well what it’s like to have a committee in our heads all the time. Everything we say and do is critiqued and scrutinized by this committee. We become frozen and paralyzed with fear over every decision we make and every action we take. Some of us take this committee to a whole other level. The committee becomes a battlefield with wars waging constantly.

In recovery, we discover the committee members and the generals who are waging wars in our minds are nothing more than children. We’ve been listening to voices of children who throw tantrums when they don’t get what they want. It’s no wonder our lives were a complete mess before coming into recovery. Wars that were waged in our minds left a trail of devastation and destruction throughout our entire lives.

Christ is the only one who can stop the wars that have been waging in our minds. He silences the child generals and fires the committee members. In the presence of Christ, all voices and wars are silenced. The committee has been disbanded and the generals are discharged. There is now only the soft voice of Christ calling us to Him. The desolation of war is behind us and the process of reconstruction is underway. Our minds are being renewed daily. Christ is in charge now and His voice is the only one we follow.

Father God, Thank You for quieting the war going on in my mind. I only want to hear Your voice talking to me. You make the committee stop talking and the war cease. Your voice is pure and calming. With You, I know exactly what I need to do. Help me to only hear You and follow Your wonderful will. d. Amen.
