Psalm 118:24, Hebrews 12:1-2
 
The wisdom of addiction recovery is true for each area of our spiritual development; we commit to overcoming sin by God’s grace and seizing the opportunities of the present one day at a time.
 
If there’s one thing a pandemic has taught us, it’s that our entire world can change in a day. Even as we transition out of quarantine mode, we realize planning, anticipating, and committing to events is a rather nebulous concept. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? A gift of these last few months has been to force us into a Biblical rhythm that has been discovered effective in many areas of life, like counseling, health, addictions, or relationships: living one day at a time. This concept oozes from the pages of Scripture in direct and clear phrases and in the concept of a Creator and Sustainer God. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? God does. The reason we can live one day at a time is because we worship a God who lives outside of time. This sermon series aims to relieve the burden of those trying to live years, months, or even weeks at a time, to focus our hearts on the present, to inspire us to seize opportunity, and to magnify God’s greatness by increasing our trust in Him.
