Yet, the strength of those who wait with hope in the lord will be renewed. They will soar on wings like eagles. Thy will run and won’t become weary. Isaiah 40:31
When we first walked into a room of recovering people, we had hope, however slim, that we could get better. When we utilize the program, especially Steps Two and Three, and let God run the show, our hope is strengthened. We see others who have recovered and eventually begin to feel that recovery in ourselves. Everything was a struggle for us before recovery. Every task, large or small, was a burden. By trusting God to run our lives, and by sharing our struggles with our group, we can lessen our burdens. Daily we can continue to hope for recovery and gain strength to continue this path.
We have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all [men], especially of believers.
1 Timothy 4:10
