FINAL QUESTIONS, from WHEN LOST MEN COME HOME, NOT FOR MEN ONLY

FINAL QUESTIONS

My recovery experience has changed the way I spend my time, my talents and my money, as well as changed the foods I eat and the way I conduct my career. Most of all, my recovery is best reflected in the positive changes in my relationships. I know my life is no longer my own. I have become, and I continue to become, the most blessed of all men. I am now much better able to share myself freely with others in rich, personal and even intimate soul-enriching ways. But there is still more personal recovery work for me to do. I continue moving forward, ready and willing to face tough questions so I may continue to recover and gain a fuller, more intimate relationship with God and the empowered life that only He can give.


Here are some of the questions I keep coming back to again and again…


What is God saying to me?

What is it that I am powerless over?


How is my life unmanageable?


What do I need to admit?


What am I going to do now?


What are the tough questions you need to ask yourself? Before, you and I avoided these kinds of questions as we hid out in the darkness of our addictions. We were afraid of the answers the questions might reveal. But now we know God gives us courage, which enables us to face difficult questions like these. We have learned they are a blessing because they keep us moving forward, leading us to a meaningful life that makes sense and is worth living well regardless of pain or suffering we may encounter. And after all, isn’t that what we were looking for all along?
