Ever walk into a recovery meeting and hear someone say, “Don’t leave before the miracle happens?” If you haven’t, maybe you have heard someone tell you that you are a miracle. Comprehending this statement may throw you for a loop because you are not trying to hear anything religious. The truth is that miracles are not only occurrences for religious people because miracles happen to ordinary people every day.
A miracle is defined as “an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause; a wonder.” After reading this definition, you may still be wondering how exactly this applies to you. Getting sober is not an easy feat because addiction is cunning, baffling, and powerful. Now that you are staying sober, you are a miracle, and here is why.
Going to meetings, working the 12-Steps, and learning about your addiction are ways that you can stay sober. The fact that you are willing to try the suggestions that are made in recovery makes you are a miracle. You would not have even considered the solution if you were not finally beat into a state of reasonableness to stop what you were doing.
More than likely you put yourself in dangerous situations, drank and used drugs in lethal doses, and yet, here you are alive and sober. Now is your chance to finally live life instead of continuing to put the nails in your coffin. Take your sobriety with all the gusto you can muster up and then give away what was so freely given to you with service to one another.
Whether you want to believe it or not, you are a miracle! Take it as a compliment of strength rather than a dig regarding religion. The fact that you got out from under before the worst possible case scenario shows that you are absolutely a modern-day miracle right before our very eyes. Keep trudging the road of happy destiny, and you will never want to go back out there to drink and use again. All you have to do is keep coming back because you are worth it.
