Celebrate Recovery May 14

Admit it – you’re here now because you forgot to watch at 7 on Thursday night! Or maybe, you were worried about being seen watching on Thursday night.  If it’s the former, no worries, that’s why we make these available. If the latter – still no worries, but let me ask you this.  Do you know that God sees you anyway? Whether we saw you in the chat room on Thursday or not, God sees you.  He sees down to your soul.  He knows you’re every thought.  There isn’t a person on this earth that could know you as well as God does. But, as scary as that may sound (and on some level it should be scary), it’s really a good thing.  To be fully known by God is truly an amazing thing because here’s the truth.  He loves you anyway.  He loves your mess and your sorrow.  He loves you in spite of your hang-ups.  If you’re new to this, the teaching you’ll hear may be hard, but don’t stress – it takes a while to get to this step.  We’re talking about admitting our wrongs to ourselves, to God and to other people.  That’s truly scary, I know.  But it is freeing.  God knows your sin, but admitting it is the launching point for true growth!

We are “those people.”  If you’re a regular CR attendee, you laugh at that.  It’s a reference we hear about ourselves from those outside the ministry who believe that we are a bunch of messed up people who need to go to a 12 step recovery program because we’ve lost...

It is said that confession is good for the soul.  Some may think it’s scriptural, but it isn’t really.  That said, James 5:16 tells us to confess our sins “to each other and pray for each other so that we may be healed.” But, does that make our souls feel good? ...

O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me (Ps. 139.1). If we believe that then we should know that the lies we tell ourselves about our sins are useless.  Not to be cliché, but at the end of the day, what this verse tells us is that we can lie to...
