Have I acknowledged and accepted my weakness over alcohol? Answering this question honestly is crucial to my recovery from alcoholism. It is the very first step on the road to recovery.
For some of us, this was possibly the most difficult thing we have had to face in our life. Who wants to admit defeat? Yet, who wants to stay miserable and lose everything in his life? The choice is ours to make and those of us who have “taken the road less traveled” now know a wonderful way of living – living life soberly.
The Lord Jesus we must remember has given us a great promise, namely, “my grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” We have taken His word literally and have found that if we rely on Him and His grace our weakness with drug alcohol is arrested. Daily we turn to Him and ask His grace for one more day of sobriety. Then we go on about our day, looking to be of service to others. It works!
