RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE with FAITH & HOPE & LOVE
Recovery is possible when you let go of yourself…your fear, your anger, your emotional pain, your childhood trauma, your anxiety, your stress, your depression, your guilt, your shame, your drug of choice..your running away from your problems… and when you choose to hold onto God. To see yourself as radically loved, His Beloved. When you choose to open yourself up to LOVE, His perfect love that casts out all fear. And when you start to feel the first stirrings of HOPE in your heart…that Recovery is Possible. That He will make a way.
Yes, it is a Process. Yes, you will have to face some things in your past, in your heart, some people in your life. You will have to be BRAVE.
“Only be strong and very courageous, that you may do what I commanded you, to walk in His Ways (paraphrase). Turn not from it to the right or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book (the Word of God, The Bible…paraphrase) shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:7-9
“Be strong,courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail your or forsake you.” – Deut. 31:6
There is a Way… to walk in His Ways. Jesus is your Life-Light, He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
