We cannot give what we do not have and we do not have what we cannot give.
We have come to yet another end of a semester for LHGH. This is a time of graduation for students who have attended and worked with adult accountability partners.
Yet, just as a high school student graduates from a small world into a larger one, the students of LHGH don't graduate from recovery but into a much larger world of recovery... Helping Others!

What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear "Confess"?
For me, growing up in a rough neighborhood, confession was not a good thing. It was something you just didn't do... not if you liked coming out of the house. Confession carried with it words like "snitch", "Rat", and "Tattletale". Those where things I did not want to be.
Knowing my background, my first sponsor said to me, "George, have you ever told on someone?" No was my answer. He then said, "Well you better learn how..... cause you're going to have to learn to tell on yourself if you want to get better!" I have never forgotten that. How about you?

Let's face it... we don't like to face it!
There is something powerful about putting pen to paper, about writing down the things that bother us the most. It's like, for the first time we actually have to SEE the mess for what it is. So why is it so hard for many of us to do?
Do we really have to acknowledge the pain? Do we really have to bring up all the hurt? Do we really have to tell someone else about it? These are just a few of the stumbling blocks that get in our way of being brutally honest with ourselves. Are you ready?

Keeping skeletons hidden or dressed up can be a tiring and daunting task. It seems like the more we try to cover up our pain the greater it becomes. So what is the cure? How do we rid ourselves of the things we keep in hiding?
If you are willing to journey with us, we will begin the process of unearthing what we have covered up and allow God to shine his light upon our darkness. Are you willing...

But what if you could? What if there was a power switch you could flick and change? Would that bring you a little hope? Would you be eager to hit the switch to change the way you respond to hurt and pain in your life, or would you just want the switch to rid you of the hurt and pain? Think about the most painful thing in your life right now... would you just want it to go away, or learn how to get through it? For you... is change an event, like a magic trick, or a process like getting into shape?

Have you ever wished you could just be somewhere else? As hurt and pain begin to mount up do you look for that trap door, exit stage left, the quickest way out of your pain? Maybe a good video game, some time spent watching the T.V., or playing sports is how you have learned to escape. Or maybe you have used more destructive things like alcohol, drugs, sex, or fighting. Do you find yourself trying to avoid the pain in you life at any cost and at every turn? Has the build up of ignored hurt caused you to become detached from the reality of circumstances in your life? Do you believe everything will just go away... in time?
