Recovery Road

So you guys know I’m a recovering addict.

And I have been using my faith and comedy as positive forces to keep me on the straight and sober.

But it’s hard for 2 reasons:

  1. Addiction is as common in my family as brown hair.
  2. I work in client support.

Sometimes I’ll be on the phone with an unecessarily difficult client, thinking…

Hmm. I should start using again.

Then I remember I’m saved. 0:)

And broke.

  1. Hey Rae,
    I had no idea that you were a recovering addict. I don’t know the process and praise God that I never went down that road. Praise God for you as well, because you’re a “new creation in Christ” (2 Cor 5:17). You are no longer an addict in recovery, you are brand new in Him. Remember that. Also, when those thoughts of get use come use 2 Corinthians 10:5 NKJV
    “casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” Use the Sword (the Word of God) to battle the enemy.
    Love you sister and remember who you are and Whose you are; you are a new creation in Christ.

    Your brother in Christ,

    Greg

  3. Lol! I commend you for remembering who is also with you and is the head of your life: The Lord. I’ll be honest with you: I, too, had days when God had to snap me out of my long days when I just wanted to give up.
    Ask yourself: Why do I have what I have and why am I here? I had to answer these questions. My responses: “I have this job or I am writing to help my brothers and sisters, in Christ, that may need help. I am here not only to live my life, but for God as well since He has done so much for me.
    Thank you, Sis’, for staying strong in the Lord and remembering who it was that helped you to escape the Devil’s trap: Jesus. You are a spiritual warrior. Stay strong! 🙂
