“What you focus on determines what you miss—and what you become.”  Eric Allenbaugh.  In this Sunday message, we look at the essence of this quote and how it speaks to recovery.  We delve into the meaning of spiritual experience, and how spiritual experiences became more readily available to us when we are able to shift our focus.  We look at the effect of focusing on pain, resentment, despair, selfish and self-centered thoughts and desires determining what we become: sick, suffering, and addicted.  In shifting our focus to spiritual principles like gratitude, service, honesty, and courage, we watch ourselves become something new in recovery.
