8 Principles of Recovery
Based on the "Beatitudes"
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 5:3a
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 5:4
Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s
care and control.
“Happy are the meek.” Matthew 5:5a
Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone
“Happy are the pure in heart.”
Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my
life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.
“Happy are those whose greatest
desire is to do what God requires” Matthew 5:6a
Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who
have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others when possible, except
when to do so would harm them or others.
“Happy are the merciful.” Matthew
5:7a; “Happy are the peacemakers” Matthew 5:9
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.
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
