Anytime you’re in a season of major recovery time feels like it’s at a stand still. It’s as if the world around you has left you behind. It completely throws you out of your normal element.
Therefore you have to give recovery all you’ve got if you want to move from where you are towards where you hope to be. There are no short cuts, easy roads, or instant fixes. The body, mind, and heart always take time to heal. You have to live and breath recovery and keep taking healthy steps forward.
Make sure you don’t look so far ahead that you miss the moment in front of you. Listen to what God is telling and teaching you. Don’t be so prideful that you can’t admit your weakness. Let those who truly care about you know how they can help you in your season of greater weakness. And surely don’t miss how God wants to use you now even though He is building your testimony for later.
Most of all, just take time to breathe. With every breath pray and connect with God who always cares and is always there. Even when everyone else is asleep God never sleeps. And it’s beyond awesome that as believers in Jesus Christ we have 24/7 access to the God of this universe. So, seize this time to recover, but never forget the greatest key to recovery.
Jesus says, “Come to me all who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.”
