Step 4 Section 4
I did remember all my sins and iniquities, for which I was tormented with the pains of hell; yea, I saw that I had rebelled against my God, and that I had not kept his holy commandments” (Alma 36:13)
Remembering your sins may be painful, but it can propel you into a new life of peace (see Alma 36:19-21). Ask someone who has completed this step how it helped him or her. How can the hope of recovery help you through the pain of remorse to the joy of forgiveness?
Because I understand that doing step 4 is God’s will, that it’s a step I need to take, I’m confident that it will all work out for the best. Having a true hope for recovery can help me through the pain of remorse to the joy of forgiveness because I know in whom I have trusted. I plan to ask Jason about this step more today and how it helped him in his recovery process.
