Little Breakthroughs

“I didn’t know you could have fun and be sober!”

What holds us back from change? It can be a lot of things. For most, change represents a lot of unknowns: Will I be good at it? Can I make it stick? Will it make me happy? It’s scary because usually no matter how bad our current circumstances are, they’re familiar. We’ve learned to cope with them, and we have no guarantee that change will make it any better.

It never occurred to me that Victor was worried about this particular aspect of sober living—simply having fun—until he made this happy pronouncement to me after spending some time with a sobriety support group. But it really makes sense. Even positive change requires a lot of unknowns. Fortunately God understands this and cares immensely about the little breakthroughs that re-assure our fears, even if it’s just about having a good time.

Keep praying with us for the rest of the little breakthroughs that Victor will see as he walks with God down the road to wholeness.
