Recovery Steps

Philippians 3:13 NLT -No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking FORWARD to what lies ahead

His testimony is very similar to my experience in the late 1990’s and my Meth addiction. In later years, after starting the Forward Recovery process, I realized that I hadn’t stopped but traded addictions.

Step 7
We humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings  https://youtu.be/jTUQczEeGWM?list=PLyv7ERH00ADWUOCTgTHv_1FeTnHOoGCmQ

Step 8
We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all  https://youtu.be/erotxy3kf4c?list=PLyv7ERH00ADWUOCTgTHv_1FeTnHOoGCmQ

Step 9
We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others  https://youtu.be/ry5f8D3MKgI?list=PLyv7ERH00ADWUOCTgTHv_1FeTnHOoGCmQ

Step 10
We continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it  https://youtu.be/xAO2u099jh0?list=PLyv7ERH00ADWUOCTgTHv_1FeTnHOoGCmQ

Step 11
We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out  https://youtu.be/7Dd1BUPwD6s?list=PLyv7ERH00ADWUOCTgTHv_1FeTnHOoGCmQ

Step 12
Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others and to practice the principles in all our affairs  https://youtu.be/6Ex0UGGCJVs?list=PLyv7ERH00ADWUOCTgTHv_1FeTnHOoGCmQ

Addiction is a real problem but worse events are instore for this earth. Current times seem to point towards the End of Days. It will not be pleasant to suffer the last 7 years of current history nor an afterlife without Jesus.
