Celebrate Recovery Weekly Encouragement 3-30-23

My wife and I were traveling from Louisiana to Colorado, pulling a trailer behind our truck. We weren’t on the road long before the trailer started swaying almost uncontrollably. Two hours later, after driving well below the speed limit, we pulled into a trailer company to see what could be done.

One of the employees said he could install an anti-sway bar on the trailer, and that should solve the problem. One hour and $120 later, we were back on the road. And lo and behold, the trailer tracked right behind the truck perfectly. We had stopped, admitted we had a problem, taken the advice of the technician, and made the application. Now we could travel on and do it safely.

In Celebrate Recovery, we learn that we can’t walk the road to recovery alone. Just like the trailer, we can develop a “sway” that will throw us off track and back into our addictions. So we start by stepping out of denial and admitting that we do have problems. Then we turn our lives over to Jesus Christ, the Great Technician. He gives us the Holy Spirit, who takes up residence within us and serves as an anti-sway Counselor-Comforter. The Holy Spirit keeps us safe and assures us that we never have to walk this road alone again.

This Week at CR!

Last month, we talked about the importance of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, which you found when you made the decision to turn your life and your will over to the care of God.
Now you will see that the road to recovery is not meant to be traveled alone. You will find that you actually need three relationships. Most important is a relationship with Jesus Christ. In addition, you need the relationship of your recovery group or a church family. Last, you need the relationship of a sponsor and/or accountability partner.
We’ve all been hurt by other people, we’ve hurt ourselves, and we’ve hurt others. And as a result, every single one of us ends up with some sort of hurt, hang-up, or habit. But the question we all face is, Where do we go from here?
This is an 8 week course designed to help you heal from lifes hurts, habits and hang ups!
