God's Presence in Christian Recovery

Your problems don’t stop you from getting into God’s presence. Obsessing about them, and trying to solve them on your own, are what hold you back and make you miserable. Many Christians in addiction use drugs and alcohol to dull the pain of their mistakes, or to forget the issues of their life. But addiction increases misery and further separates you from the One who has the help you need.

Misery has a mind of its own if you let it persist, but it's what you've come to know and accept in your life. Your addiction promotes your misery, and vice versa. It’s a vicious cycle that you have to break if you really want to live a clean and sober Christian life.

If getting to God isn't easy, you must persist in seeking Him! God's presence is where you'll find peace in the middle of chaos, and where you'll find your way of escape. Insist on meeting God. Start with putting on Christian worship music, then praise Him and pray to Him. Don't leave until He shows up.
