Grow in Godliness

“God calls each of us to grow . . . to grow in faith, in righteousness, in love, in joy, in hope, patience, peace, perseverance . . . in godliness. How do you do that?” ~ Cahn, Jonathan. The Book of Mysteries (p. 212). Charisma House.

How do you grow in all the right ways?
You face problems as they arise.
But not alone. You look for guidance
to a power beyond your abilities.
You look to tough times as opportunities…
to grow, to find your strengths, to learn,
to overcome. Use the tools,
a clan of eating, the telephone,
literature, writing, an action plan,
service, and anonymity, and meetings.
Simply grow in recovery and as long as  you do,
you will grow in all the right ways,
in faith, in righteousness, in love,
in joy, in hope, in patience, in peace,
in perseverance and in godliness.
