At many 12-Step meetings, we have a closing mantra, “Keep coming back it works if you work it –so work it because You’re Worth it!”

And my friends that is the truth. We are worth it. Don’t quit before the miracle happens, don’t ask for a refund, keep believing, step out of denial into the clarity of truth. And when the days seem dark and dreary we have to, “Keep coming back because it does works if we work it. And we are worth it.” Together, let’s take that step of faith and trust our Higher Power is working in us.

So let’s do it—full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching (Hebrews 10:23-25 MSG).
