Faith. You can’t see it or measure it. But, you can certainly feel it. It’s a unique bond that you have with your creator – one that evolves over time adding unique layers and textures to your relationship with Christ.
And, it’s a powerful tool to help guide you through challenging chapters of your journey. Are you being confronted with something in your life right now that is giving you pause? Find strength in your faith and use that compass to keep moving you in the right direction.
If you’re on a path of sobriety and working on yourself (and a life free from addiction), your faith can help you in so many ways.
(1) Seek to learn and grow. It’s a common reaction to run away from painful experiences and emotions. But, you should know that the Lord is always by your side. You can’t avoid suffering, but you can seek to understand how it can help you grow stronger and learn from those experiences. The next time you are tested by a stressful situation, ask yourself how you can learn and grow from that experience. [Nehemiah 8:10 - Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.]
(2) Remember that He is by your side. At times, when you feel like life is more than you can bear, remind yourself that you are never alone. God will never leave you or forsake you. [Isaiah 41:10 - So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.]
(3) Lean on His teachings. Life can be difficult and full of complicated situations. But, you don’t have to go it alone. If you’re facing a difficult situation, turn to your Bible for guidance. Or, talk to a pastor or another leader in your church for help. They can likely help you make the right choices that align with your Christian values. [Romans 8:38-39 - And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.]
