The following bible verse is from the Life Recovery Bible by Tyndale House Publishing. 1 Peter 2:21-25. For God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ has suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow his steps. He never sinned, nor ever deceived anyone. He did not retaliate when he was insulted, nor threaten revenge when he suffered. He left his case in the hands of God, who always judges fairly. He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed. Once you were like sheep who wandered away. But now you have turned to your Shepherd, the Guardian of your souls. No matter where you are in your recovery from your addiction, God has called you to do good. There may be times that you slip in your recovery. Realize that you are not a failure in life. You are in a process of self discovery. If you are suffering and tormented by your addiction, you will overcome it one day at a time. As you take the steps towards recovery, Christ will lead the way. Follow in his footsteps by reading the Life Recovery Bible. Place your troubles in the hands of God. God will comfort you on your journey to recovery.You may have wandered into the world of addiction time and time again. God will always bring you back to his flock. He is the Shepherd who will guide you back on the the right track. He only wants what is best for you…..A life of hope, joy, and recovery.
