Rehab: Spiritual Recovery in Truth

Together with kindness and in understanding, let’s take this time to self reflect. I am here to inspire, encourage, and remind you that God has given us the most important weapon we have to fight the enemy, His Word.

Now let’s dress our soul like we dress our bodies, EVERYDAY!

Rehab: Spiritual Recovery

“It wasn’t any herb or ointment that healed them but your word alone, Lord which heals everything.” Wisdom of Solomon 16:12 CEBA

How many of you are familiar with the American documentary series Intervention? It follows participants, who are dependent on or addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. They are documented in anticipation of an intervention meeting with family and friends. During the meeting, loved ones read letters as they plead with them to go to an inpatient drug rehabilitation program or risk losing everything. The show also shares follow up on the recovery progress. On this show I have seen both frightening and heartbreaking episodes that reach across social, demographic, racial, and age barriers. Even Hollywood celebrities are not exempt from this show.

When I think about rehab as it relates to spiritual recovery, it is a journey of faith, courage, honesty, hope, and acceptance. No, we are not alone, the Lord is with us, we are his and we are the sheep of his pasture.

Here are some of the benefits of spirituality in recovery:

  • Helps You Find Renewed Purpose.
  • Promotes Accountability.
  • Helps You Connect with Something Outside Self.
  • Increases Compassion and Humility.
  • Promotes Greater Mindfulness through meditation and prayer.

No doubt about it friends, we have all gone through things. Do you sometimes feel this is “a test of the emergency broadcast system, this is only a TEST!” Recovery means a return to a normal state of health, mind, or strength. It is the action or process of regaining possession or control of something stolen or lost. My friends we have a God who deals in the impossible. He has the power to heal those invisible wounds that no one can see. I can remember when my way was dark, and with tears in my eyes, I could feel the chains on my ankles tighten as I was pull further into a lifeless black hole. I was alone and afraid. But there came Jesus, who brought the light into the dark places of my life, and then he touched me with his finger of love, mercy, grace and then He lifted me. No matter what you may be going through, you are not alone. And what I found out,  I was never alone. He was there all the time.

If you are dealing with some issues, that are too heavy for you, don’t go it alone. Talk to a trusted family member, friend, see a counselor, or pastor. If you are willing to take one step, God will take two.
