Recovery may seem overwhelming, but with God, you are never alone. Finding balance tending to the needs of your body, soul, and spirit in your recovery is a crucial component of your journey. Yahlight can help you connect to a higher power as you find your way on your recovery path.

The Body, Soul, and Spirit in Recovery

Your body, soul, and spirit are all closely connected. Understanding how these elements can work together in your recovery journey can be incredibly beneficial. Your body was made to be a temple God’s Spirit; it is an extension of him. God is in your heart and wants to be intimate with you. We are given a human spirit so that we connect spirit to Spirit with a higher power. Your soul is your unique indentity  and personality. Each soul has a divine purpose.  By connecting with God, you will have a deep and meaningful relationship that will never leave you. God can support you and give you strength through all of the challenges you face as well as all of your victories. When you open your life to God, he will help guide you, especially in your recovery. He wants you to be free.

You can listen or read the word of God to better understand his plans, character and promises to you. There are different ways you can learn how to read or listen to his words in order to know him.

Living your life aligned with God and taking care of your body, soul, and spirit will always return you to peace on your recovery path and personal growth journey. You can begin your journey today, one step at a time, by listening to your body, soul, and spirit and allowing God into your heart. 

Your Soul’s Purpose

At Yahlight, we believe your soul is beautiful and uniquely made. Your soul is innocent and intended to connect with God. In active addiction, we understand you are hurting. Connecting with spirituality will open the possibility for your soul to flourish and heal. Your soul’s purpose when connecting with God is to come to know and surrender to a higher power. The soul is week but God’s power provides the strength we need. He will guide you through recovery. 

There are different ways you can discover your soul’s purpose. Some examples include prayer, meditation, and biblical contemplations. These connection methods will allow you to pause and discover what he wants to share with you. By listening to his words, you can establish an important relationship that will lead you through your life challenges. Please browse our Biblical Affirmations and Contemplations page to discover new ways you can become closer to God. Each contemplation is five minutes long and have Bible verses on various subjects like restoration, strength and love. This is one way to feed your soul with the words found in scripture. Knowing and hearing God’s words helps you to know him, making it easier to connect. 

Finding Balance Within Your Recovery Needs

Recovery may seem overwhelming and demanding. At Yahlight, we understand your concerns, and we want to help. Finding balance in your recovery needs can be helpful. We believe that by addressing your body’s needs, nurturing your soul, and connecting to your spirit, you can conquer your recovery journey. In recovery, you are likely to find that your body needs nutrients. An article published by Drug and Alcohol Dependence titled “The Importance of Nutrition in Aiding Recovery from Substance Use Disorders: A Review” discussed nutrition in recovery. This article concluded that poor nutrition can impede recovery. Furthermore, this means tending to the needs of the body in recovery is crucial. 

Nurturing your soul’s needs in recovery could mean ensuring you are connecting to God, as you understand, and taking time to listen to him. He wants to council you and help lead you through your recovery. You deserve to walk the path of recovery with the grace, light and love of God. The journal Alcoholism Treatment Quarterly discusses spirituality in recovery. This article concluded that spirituality has an important role in individuals in addiction recovery and stated: 

“A large body of research has investigated the role of religiousness and spirituality in dealing with stressful situations. In that context, religious and spiritual beliefs and practices appear to function as protective factors or buffers that mediate or moderate the relationship between life stressors and quality of life.”

From this, you can conclude there is an important role for your connection to God in your recovery. 

In addiction recovery, you may discover a newfound love for life when you open your life and heart to God as you currently understand him. Remember that taking care of your body, soul, and spirit take effort, time and patience, but the relationship you want with God will be a life-long connection. This will help light your path. God can hold you up in difficult times; when you continue to look to him and listen to his word, you are never alone. Your time and effort is worth all the rewards. 

Connecting to God’s Spirit

God wants to know who you are by connecting to your spirit. By connecting with his spirit, you will be joined as one to him. God is loving and wants to help you overcome challenges. He also wants to stand with you through your victories. Connecting with his spirit is something you can do through daily spiritual practices. At Yahlight, we can help you learn how to welcome God into your healing journey and welcome his light into your life. He can help you heal. 

In your recovery, God can tend to your body, soul, and spirit. Open your life to Him, and let us support your journey. You can work with me to find spiritual healing in your recovery today.
