Lesson #9: INVENTORY
This week, we’ve come to a crucial step in our recovery process – writing down our inventory. The simple act of writing helps us organize our thoughts and focus on recalling people and events, including those that we may have forgotten or repressed in some way. Reflecting on our past, we seek to identify the things that have played important roles – both positive and negative – in our lives.
As you set out to write your inventory, continue to develop your recovery support team and remember that you are not alone. Be mindful to pray continually, asking the Lord to encourage and guide you through each step. Ask him to help you maintain a balance as you seek to recall past people and events and resist the urge to allow the negative to outweigh or overshadow the positive. Join us this Thursday night as we are equipped and encouraged to write our inventory.
“‘Come, let’s talk this over!’ says the Lord; ‘no matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can take it out and make you as clean as freshly fallen snow. Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I can make you white as wool!'” Isaiah 1:18
Principle 4: Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.
“Happy are the pure in heart.” Matthew 5:8
Step 4: We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
“Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the LORD.” Lamentations 3:40
