"Denial is not just a river in Egypt and those who sail it are the captains of their own helm."
~George L.

A life of denial is more dangerous than the things we actually struggle with. If admitting is the first step of recovery than denial is the first stage of our hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Think of denial like cancer, if you catch it early it can be treated and prevented from returning, but if not, detriment is sure to ensue. So, why is denial so dangerous and how does it sneak up on us before we see it for what it is?

Only God Can Judge Me

Only God can judge me!
 How many times do we hear this said? How many times have we said this ourselves? What are we “supposedly” judging? Is God our only judge? What is our responsibilities within this statement? Is it even right to say it?

This Monday (August 18, 2014) at 5:30pm at Life Hurts, God Heals (LHGH), we will be discussing The Heart. The heart is a subject that I’m very passionate about. I would like to start out by saying that I’m a sinner just like everyone else. 

 Maybe it’s time to rethink the sayings that we use? Maybe it’s time to rethink “how” we use the sayings we use?

 Most of us have heard it said...
"Unforgivenness, is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die."
So, why is unforgiveness so toxic in our lives? If we had to gauge our toxicity level right now from 1 to 10, how toxic are we?

I don't know about you, but I am tired of things that are destroying me, and unforgiveness is one of them! Aren't you ready to let go of what they have done to you? Aren't you ready to seek forgiveness for what you've done????

The Next Exit

It's amazing how we have been fooled into thinking it's okay to do things our way. The more we travel that very common road, the more we experience hurt, pain, and sorrow. We say we don't want to feel those things any longer, but refuse to get off the "My Way Highway".

Aren't you tired of the pain yet? Aren't you frustrated that things aren't changing for you the way you'd like? Isn't it time to try a different route? Stop clinging to the path you have always taken and have come to know. It's time to embark on an uncharted adventure! Will you join us?

Truth Hurts Sometimes

Let's face it... the truth hurts sometimes and in recovery it hurts more times than not! Isn't that why we are so steeped in denial? I mean, who likes pain anyway?

The tough part with emotional, mental and spiritual pain is that it is so easy to hide... especially from ourselves. That's why truth and honesty are critical for life recovery.

Are you ready for the hard truth? Are you ready to face it no matter how ugly or painful? If so, you are ready to continue reading...

Acting or Action?

There is a saying I grew up with you have probably heard... "Don't talk about it, be about it!" It was a saying that pushed people beyond the simplicity of speech and into the  ambitiousness of action.

So how come so many fail to make the transition? Why is it our words speak so much louder than our actions and what does that say about our recover?

The Deceleration of Independence
We are quickly approaching the 4th of July, the day we celebrate our Independence as a people and as a nation. The freedoms we celebrate are all linked to this sacred document of national history. This document represents men of great stature and character gathered together to take a stand against tyranny.

When it comes to the documents of our lives does our independence from the tyranny of our hurts, habits, and hang-ups make us independent people?
