    The 12 SimpleSteps to Recovery

    1. Replace my addiction with a relationship with Christ.

    Ephesians 2:8-9 - For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    2. I can never be too dirty for God.

    John 10:28 - And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

    3. My addiction is a symptom of my sin nature.

    Jeremiah 17:9 - The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    4. Trust what God tells me is true.

    John 8:32 - And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    5. God wants a relationship with me even when I make mistakes.

    1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    6. Align my thinking with God’s ways.

    Romans 12:1-2 - I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

    Philippians 4:9 - Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

    7. I am fighting a real spiritual battle every day.

    1 Peter 5:8 - Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

    8. I am accountable to God for my decisions.

    Galatians 6:7-9 - Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

    Romans 14:12 - So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

    Philippians 3:13-14 - Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
