Step 2: We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. The following is from the Life Recovery Bible by Tyndale House Publishing. “God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him” Philippians 2:13. As we begin the month of February, step two is a great place to start. Living a life of addiction can bring total chaos into your life. Once you find a twelve step program or Celebrate Recovery, you will discover a better way to live a healthier lifestyle. Your higher power or God gives you the desire and motivation to change your life for the better. How does a recovery program restore your sanity? A twelve step program or Celebrate Recovery will support you in making positive changes in your life. You will be given tools to recover such as the twelve steps and fellowship with individuals in a large group setting. In Celebrate Recovery you will receive in some cases a hot meal, a presentation, bible based recovery, and small groups. Believe it or not but God is leading you to where you need to be…….A recovered individual. God will give you the desire to want to live a better life. What pleases God the most is seeing that you are making the effort to change your habits into good ones. Living a life of recovery may seem uncomfortable at first. Think about how you first became addicted. You were uncomfortable with your life and wanted to numb your pain. The twelve steps and Celebrate Recovery will give you a fresh start on life. God is working in your recovery. Are you working your recovery program?
