May 27 CHP 38 v 8 TWELVE STEPPING WITH STRENGTH FROM THE PSALMS
I am feeble and severely broken ; I groan because of the turmoil of my heart .
(GODS BIG BOOK)
STEP 2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
Notice the verse mentions the heart has you broken , not your head . If we could address the issues that causes us sadness we just might not need to self medicate . I would say this is the difference between Secular recovery (AA NA CA MA etc) and Christian recovery .Christian recovery addresses the whole person ,secular deals just with the head. Non Christian treatment facilities assign you a head doctor who tells you have mental problems ( Bi-polar , depression , Border-line personality etc) which only make most feel worse and defeated and you will most likely wind up with more pills . Whats the point is what I thought for a long time ,if I got a disease that will never go away , and it also became my number one excuse to keep using. Good news GODS BIG BOOK mentions none of theses conditions . All of you has to be addressed and your head is not messed up , your heart is broke and will mend , lets pray and start talking about whats making it hurt . FREEDOM COMES FROM FACING THE FEAR AND SHARING YOUR PAIN WITH OTHERS WHO CARE .
James 5: 16 - Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
