Rest As Dwelling With God

I like to think of rest as an actual dwelling with my creator. A safe place for security. Rest is not just a word or an idea but a real location and spending time there with God is essential to our recovery.

Setting Boundaries With Addicted Loved Ones

The purpose of setting boundaries with addicted loved ones is to identify the behavior that has been difficult or hurtful to the family-and put a stop to it. While you can’t control your loved one’s actions, you can control how you respond to them. When your boundaries are weak-or don’t exist at all-you compromise what makes you, you. Weak boundaries when a loved one is addicted, mean you will likely be lied to, cheated on, and stolen from. When you set boundaries with an addicted loved one, you increase the chances that he or she will seek help.

A Prayer to Know God Better

A MONTY’MAN’S MEDITORIAL. Two things we need in our recovery process and to know our creator better is wisdom and revelation. Many people say they find it difficult to know God’s will but don’t seek to know God on a personal level. Instead, we attempt growing our relationship with God on religious terms when all the while God wants a relationship.

Making God In My Image

When we create God out of our own understanding we run the risk of thinking of ourselves more highly than we ought. In fact, we become the creator. That is a dangerous mindset for anyone but particularly those of us in recovery. The Big Book of AA states that the first requirement in the recovery process is that “we had to stop playing God, it didn’t work”.
