We could translate it this way: One day God offered me a slice of the most delicious cake I have ever tasted, and He kindly provided me with the recipe. I purchased the ingredients and followed the instructions; I did not dilute, substitute, or exclude any of the ingredients or, in my case, the steps I received in the message He sent me. After tasting the cake, it was just as God promised, because any change to the recipe would result in never tasting God’s delicious cake.
So, the answer to the question about “toning down” the mention of God, my reply is simple and straightforward; it is a resounding -NO. We all have our beliefs, and we should respect one another and be free to practice our faith. I choose to be transparent about my recovery. To leave out any part of this process would be misleading, as you would not be able to understand and appreciate the path I have taken. I am sharing the steps of my spiritual journey, which involved divine guidance from God and led me to where I am today; I do not intend to impose my faith or offend anyone. For me, it is this simple: I asked God to heal me, and He graciously shared the steps I had to follow. You decide for yourself what works for you and what does not. I am proud of my faith; I would not be here without God, whom I call Jesus. The recipe centers on God and accountability, and for all it’s worth, I know it works. I hope you find the healing and peace you seek and deserve.
