I didn’t want to become an alcoholic when I was young. I didn’t want to BE and alcoholic when I was and active one. And, most of all, I didn’t want to admit I was an alcoholic when I was near the bottom. My life was a mess. Just messy. I was out of control. Yuck.
When I did finally admit it, everything changed.
I got busy being sober, staying sober and helping others to get sober and stay sober.
My mess became my message. Now I just show up and tell my story. A message of hope. If I can do this life without alcohol, so can you. That’s the message. God did for me what I could not do for myself. I realized that being an alcoholic and now being in recovery gave me a new purpose—
To help others like myself.
I had to BE an alcoholic to be able to help one like myself —Takes one to know one.
You are in a unique position to help others just by your experience.
My credibility skyrocketed when, with God’s help, I was able to step out of that mess and into the message I was to carry. To show others that they could do what I had done. God can use a broken thing like me.
Broken people break things. Hurt people, hurt people.
Healed people heal people!
That’s what we do now that we are in the process of healing...we help heal others.
In this way, we continue to heal ourselves.
What a concept.
Service. Giving way what was so freely given to us.
“Persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”
2 Corinthians 4:9
