Everyone Is Welcome

Every person the Father gives me eventually comes running to me. And once that person is with me, I hold on and don’t let go. John 6:37

Everyone needs recovery and everyone is welcome in Living Life Recovery.

As part of my rehab it was compulsory to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. When I finished the program and left the rehab I continued to attend A.A.  At the same time, I established and was running an Alcoholics Victorious Group.

One night when I attended A.A. I shared how Jesus had changed my life and was responsible for my recovery. An elder of the A.A. group came up to me afterwards and said. “This is A.A. not church you can’t talk about Jesus here.” I don’t know if this attitude still exists in A.A. I don’t attend anymore.

Are you open to welcoming everyone into recovery?

Bridle your anger, trash your wrath, cool your pipes–it only makes things worse. Psalms 37:8

He [God] knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. Romans 8:27

He [God] comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. 2 Corinthians 1:4

##Talk #Attitude #Attend

Prayer: Lord, help me this week to find one person I have not yet shared with in recovery and talk to them.
