Again & Again

Just about all of us have been told by someone that we are loved. If you're reading this blog there is a good chance that person's love may be wearing thin after all of our failures. In recovery, they say that most don't seek help until all of the bridges are burned and there is no where left to turn. So, how can God continue to love us beyond all of our failures? All of the hurt that was caused us? All of the hurt that we caused? How can God's love never fail?

It's That Time Again

It's like the dreaded report card, meeting with guidance counselor, or conversation with mom or dad that you just can't get around. It's that time when the mirror of truth must be held up and we take a good hard look at the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Self examination. Do you do it? Is it a regular part of your spiritual routine? Is it something you procrastinate about or jump in with booth feet? There are lots of different approaches and blockades to a Life Review, so have you reviewed your review process lately?

Time to Get Honest

It's here, it's time and there is no other way around other than complete denial... and that's a step in the wrong direction. Are you ready? Have you believed? Do you have someone you can trust? Then it's time to line up the good and the bad and take an honest look at the truth of who we were, who we are, and who God wants us to be. Are you ready for Honesty?

New Direction

When it comes to recovery, some tough choices have to be made. It doesn't matter what you are dealing with, be it substance abuse, anger, depression, cutting, hate, or any other form of dysfunction. There comes a point where you have to ask yourself "Is the pain to stay the same greater then the pain to change?" Are you ready to do what it takes to experience true freedom and healing from life's hurts?

Expect Change

"Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result." ~Insanity

There are things in our lives that we work hard at. When we put all we have into our studies, our exercises, or our athleticism we expect to get better. After all, "No pain, No gain" right? So why should our recovery be any different? Are you tired of the same old results because you just keep doing the same old thing? Are you ready for change and to expect change?

Hello My Name Is...

We all have them, you know... the things you wish you hadn't done, the people you wish you hadn't hurt, the things you wish you would have tried or accomplished. Regrets.

Do you find yourself constantly entertaining your regrets over and over like a video tape on a loop in your brain? Do you find that your stress levels are up, your emotional levels are down, and your thought life is all round? How exhausted do you feel? Want to feel better? Think  better? Live better? Here's how...
