In today’s Gospel Reading for the Fifth Sunday of Lent, Martha says:
“I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world.”
The Second Step of recovery holds that we “Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity.”
As a “spiritual but not religious” program (for good reason), 12 Step recovery obviously leaves it up to the individual in recovery to decide upon a “Higher Power.” Rather than force one religion’s view of God upon people, you are free to worship in whatever faith tradition you feel is “true.”
So, as a Christian, what is your “Higher Power?” Have you “come to believe” that Jesus is the “way, the truth and the life?”
Sounds like the perfect “Higher Power,” to me.Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)"The Stations of the Cross for Alcoholics"
