Active Recovery

Are you actively participating in your own recovery? Sounds like common sense, but what does it really mean?

Social media- the great observer…

We casually flip through our newsfeed, or even our private group posts, scanning for something that catches our eye. We might even say we are reading the posts from recovery groups or well meaning friends.

But do we ever interact? Do we apply what we read? Do we really engage with those we say we connect with for support, or do we just watch others?

We all need to recover from something. That requires active participation. What does it look like to be active in recovery?

1. Move.

Do something. Do anything that helps you move forward. Take one step in the right direction. Go to a meeting, a support group, or maybe meet with a friend to talk.

2. Stop looking backward

Which way are you facing? If you constantly look back at where you came from, you will not walk forward. Turn around and look at the future. Its bright and hopeful.

3. Get involved.

Stop being an observer. Find a way to get involved with others in your area of recovery. Helping others is a great way to move yourself forward!

Most of all, don’t let anyone stop you. You have everything you need – God has given you His Spirit to enable and empower you. Don’t let well- meaning observers distract you with doubts and criticism! Never, never let fear take control.

“Beware that no one distracts you or intimidates you in their attempt to lead you away from Christ’s fullness by pretending to be full of wisdom when they’re filled with endless arguments of human logic. “ Colossians 2:8 TPT

Get moving, get active, get engaged. If you feel stuck, we can help! Take the first step forward and reach out to me!

Recovery is worth it.
