The 12th step of Alcoholics Anonymous is supporting another on their road to recovery. It is noted that this step is an integral piece in long-lasting recovery and overall success. It makes complete sense, as we are not only designed for relationship, but we are called to be more like Jesus–and humble servitude was His life purpose and mission!
I don’t have all of the answers.
I don’t always obey God on the 1st (2nd, 3rd, 4th…) time.
But I have a heart to serve and use the life experiences I’ve endured to support others on their journey.
Here are but a few things I’ve overcome on this side of heaven:
- Excessive behaviors (binge-eating, drinking, and promiscuity)
- Fear of rejection
- Unemployment (2x)
- Extreme weight loss (and management!)
- Starting (and failing at) a business
- Toxic feelings of worthlessness and not-enoughness
Here’s what I know: God has entrusted each of us with trials and given us grace to overcome so that we might help and encourage others along the way.
“God turned your evil into good to save the lives of many people,
which is being done.”
“So encourage each other and give each other strength,
just as you are doing now.”
1 Thes 5:11
