The following are a list of recovery scriptures that have brought me hope and direction throughout my recovery journey. These scriptures share a message of hope, faith, rescue and the love that our Father in Heaven and Savior have for each of us.
The moment the scriptures became a tool of rescue for me was the moment I started to believe they were actually for me and not for those people in scriptural times or for who I once thought to be more deserving people than I in these latter days. It was when I began inserting my own name into each verse that I became keenly aware of the possibilities for my rescue.
This list will be forever changing as the scriptures are living and will grow with me as I grow.
Please feel free to share your favorite recovery scriptures as well!
Bolded Scriptures are my favorite!
