Wretched and Hope-Filled

What if you are as bad as you think you are?  Let’s talk about that scenario.  


You think you are bad?  You think your life situation is heartbreaking?  Ok.  But here is one other piece of information for your consideration.  There is no need to compare and compete for the worst story.  


But suppose you did compete and won?  Suppose you really do have the worst story EVER?  And suppose you are the villain in the story (at least in part)?


Consider this:


Even if he (GOD) has driven you to the far end of heaven, the Lord Your God will gather you up from there; he will take you back from there.  Deuteronomy 30:4


Our stories do not serve us well when they keep us stuck.  


The 12 steps and the scriptures are in sync on this - we must come to believe that a power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity.


A sane perspective understands that God is all about gathering up and bringing us back.  Are you willing to be brought back?  Or are there some areas that remain stubbornly resistant to hope?
