Jesus The Light of the World John 8:12 (Life Recovery Bible)

12Jesus said to the people, “I am the light of the world.  If you follow me, you won’t be stumbling through the darkness because you will have the light that leads to life.”

All I had to do to get back into a relationship with Christ was to stop drinking. I remember arguing back with the inner promptings, “Why should it matter whether I use alcohol or not? I can still keep God as number one in my life, with the drink.”

I was in denial, of course.  I didn’t want to give up the quick fix peace and calm one can find in a bottle.

But, I’m free — for today only!  I must pray in gratitude for my new found sobriety and fellowship with other Christians in recovery.  

Thank You, Lord, for all You have done in my life. I look back over the hills and valleys and You were there with me — through it all.  You wanted to be my source and my rock, but, I thought I found something temporarily better.  All my life, You have been watching over me, caring for me, gently (sometimes not) guiding me along the path that leads to You. For today, You are the Master of my life.  My manna. Tomorrow, I will praise You again.  Amen.
