…if an addict tries to replace their Program of Recovery (growth via spiritual principles) with ANY THING, they will lose both.
There’s a good reason that the Old-timers say “No major life changes in the first year.”
School, work, moving out of state/country, job, serious relationship…
If it’s God’s will for you, won’t it still be there when you’re actually ready for it? In my experience, my will is always going to be along the lines of INSTANT GRATIFICATION, while God’s will requires me to practice patience (and other spiritual principles).
Something to think about.
