Relapsed – Have I Let God Down?

August 7, 2012

“I used to struggle with bulimia but I’ve been in recovery for about a year now. The other day I had a huge setback. After so many months of resisting the urge to binge, someone said something that triggered me, and I totally blew it. I binged and purged not just once, but several times. Now I feel like I’ve undone all the good things that God has done for me in my recovery journey. And I feel like I’ve completely disregarded the gift of freedom that he gave me. This makes me feel kind of out of sorts with God, and I’m afraid that this feeling will only make things worse, and that soon I’ll be right back where I used to be. What can I do? I don’t want to live this way anymore, but I’m just so afraid of what God is thinking of me right now.”
