It also speaks to our need to weigh the cost of our recovery. A searching and moral inventory of our life is required in both cases. If commitment to Jesus and recovery is more valuable to us than our compulsions, addictions or dysfunctions, then recovery in the fullest sense will be realized. If we cannot give up the pleasures of our dependencies our recovery will be short lived. We will end compromising our commitments and remain enslaved to our dependencies and the painful consequences that inevitably result.
On Saturdays we are blessed to have a group of women who meet to read the bible and learn from Gods word. This week we are studyng Disciples and already I am blessed by the paradox- the cost of follwong Jesus and the cost of a good recovery = a great way to live.
