When My Mantra Needs Revival

This is my mantra in recovery.

Don’t drink. Say your prayers, and get to a meeting.

It works. But sometimes even wise mantras need revival.

That’s why I recommend including Scripture in the daily routine of recovery.

Dealing with my past – the stuff that flares up to haunt and hurt today, and threatens tomorrow – can be like trying to live with a gangrenous limb hoping it is healing.  My old ways of coping — drinking or worse, indulging a dry drunk – will not work.

Paul’s letter to the Colossian church, which our church is studying, is a compassionate sermon to people whose habits, hang-ups, and hurts were overwhelming them. A recent sermon showed me how to keep the past in the rear view mirror: Putting of the Past.
