I think it's more accurate to say: RECOVERY fighting to save yourself from yourself! We have to fight for our recovery and refuse to give into our addictions. The only way is with help from Jesus. My flesh is weak. I think of Jesus' whole purpose for being on this earth to save us and all He went through for us. That makes me want to do good for Him. He wants to please our Heavenly Father and so do I. That is how I am able to live in recovery. Thank you Jesus!
