Sometimes people have a hard time accepting that they hurt anyone other than themselves. Does that describe you? This is especially true for functioning addicts who manage to keep the mortgage paid, hold a job, etc. When we take a deep moral inventory, we usually find that our behaviors did negatively affect someone who loved us. It has been said that “no man is an island.” We need to admit to ourselves who we may have hurt.
When was the last time you got down on your knees and cried out to God to take this away from you? If you’re still struggling and feel like God is not hearing you, please don’t believe that lie. He hears you.
Ready for transformation? That’s what we do in step six. We get ready. We welcome God to prepare us for the changes that we need to make. I compare this to getting ready for surgery, only this is spiritual surgery.
