“Spiritual Recovery: Restore us to Sanity”
The second step toward Spiritual Recovery is ‘Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.’ The book of James tells us that while we can acknowledge God, we have to accept the work and be worked on by God. This great work is forgiveness, provided for us on the cross. Just as in Jesus’ parable of the Prodigal Son, God desires to forgive us. Just as there is not enough will power in the world to keep an addict away from their drug, there isn’t any way that we can work enough or be good enough to earn God’s favor. Let us allow God’s grace and love to transform us and restore us to Sanity.
