8 Recovery Principles, based on the Beatitudes, by Rick Warren

1. Realize I'm not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.

" Happy are those who know that they are spiritually poor." Matthew 5:3

2. Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that He has the power to help me recover.

  "Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:3

3.Consciously chooseto commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control.

   "Happy are the meek." Matthew 5:5

4. Openly examine and confessmy faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.

   "Happy are the pure in heart." Matthew 5:8

5. Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and hhumbly ask Him to remove my character defects.

  "Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires." Matthew 5:6

6. Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I've done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

  "Happy are the merceful." Matthew 5:7

  "Happy are the peacemakers." Matthew 5:9

7. Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.

8. Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and my words.

" Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires." Matthew 5:10
