Episode 47 - Step 1
Step 1 is the beginning of your recovery journey. At the very outset is the realization there are three issues to be dealt with via this step: (1) being powerless (2) denial, and (3) admitting powerlessness. The journey begins where we admit that we are powerless to control our tendency to do the wrong things and our lives have become unmanageable, out of control.
Two questions need to be asked: (1) Am I going to let my past failures prevent me from taking this journey, and (2) Am I afraid to change? Or, what are my fears of the future?
Four actions are required as you’re working through this step: (1) Stop denying the pain (2) Stop playing God (3) Start admitting your powerlessness, and (4) Start admitting your life has become unmanageable.
Let’s face it, we have all stumbled over poor choices in the past. But the race isn’t over yet. God isn’t interested in how we started, but how we finish the race. If you’re battling, let today be your day that you begin to pursue true freedom. Blessings!!!
