Gratitude in Christian Recovery

When you're in the midst of a battle, it's hard to see the good in your life. Still, your freedom depends on your connection with God and His Son Jesus Christ. In other words, no matter what your circumstances are, you are still a Christian.

Last night, my son said something that really touched my heart. He's been going through a major trial, and has admitted that he's been feeling disconnected from the heart of God. Finally, when it appeared that he was at the end of himself, he realized something. I would call it a revelation. He said, "I'm just grateful to be saved. That's enough for now."

It was a simple statement, but carried a powerful message. When it seems like we can't win the battle, or our life isn't going as planned, we can rely on salvation to give us hope and fill the empty places.
