God Is Always With Us

For men are note cast off by the Lord forever. Though He brings grief, He will show compassion. Lamentations 3:31-32

Ever just feel cut off from the world? You have decided you want to be sober and now the friends that you have don't fit into that lifestyle of sobriety. You know you need to leave them behind but it's so hard because your entire life is in shambles.

You might think you are alone and that you have no one to turn to. And yes it might be true that you don't have the comfort of a family life or right now life filled with intimate friends. But, it does not mean you are alone.  God is with you always!  Matthew 28:20 states "Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

So when you feel like you are alone and don't have that support, know that Jesus is with you this every moment and that He will not leave you.

Practically, you might want to consider this a time to attend a 12 Step Program meeting or a Celebrate Recovery Meeting.  There are others who have been in this position and can help be of a support during this very dark time.  But as you grown in your recovery and spiritual life, you will begin to discover others who do care about you and want to be in your life as well.
