(as excerpted from “The Life Recovery Devotional“)
“In order to recover we need to follow the example of the woman (who touched Jesus believing that touching him would heal her illness). We cannot afford to stand back, hoping for a “cure,” and avoid deliberate action because of our lack of faith. We may have lived with our condition for many years (whatever that may be), spending our resources on promising “cures” without success. When we can come to believe in a Power greater than ourselves and have the faith to take hold of our own recovery, we will find the healing power we’ve been looking for. ”
This read offers promising hope that once we do “step out” and discover something greater than ourselves may if fact be out there and have the best intentions for us. And can even do for us what we could not do for ourselves. Life seems to make so much more sense as we learn to get out of our own way and seek out what is true in life.
