 What people are saying about Celebrate Recovery

Good morning. I was oldest of 3 girls. I had what I thought was a "normal childhood", an intact family growing up in a small town along the Sacramento River. I was always busy with school, clubs, choir, and church. However our home life did not revolve around God, and I never actually had what I would call a "relationship" with Jesus. My dad and I had did not get along, and I always felt like I wasn't good enough. He hated the fact that I was overweight and never failed to tell me how disappointed and embarrassed he was by me.

 

At an early age, I learned that I needed to be perfect and a "people pleaser". Throughout the course of my life, I used many ways to cope with my feelings of inadequacy, including overeating, anorexia, spending money, and alcohol.

Your "typical" suburban mom, I’m married with 3 great kids, a successful career, and involved with my children’s swim team, water polo and football teams. On the outside, I appeared to be fine…but on the inside - I was completely broken! I felt so far away from God that I didn't know how to make my way back. While living in complete denial, just over two years ago, I hit my bottom with my addiction to prescription pain killers.

 

Back, in the summer of 2003, my son attended VBS at Christ Community. Additionally, I also have family and friends who attend church here. One day I saw the Celebrate Recovery sign out front and decided to go. At first my kids were worried that someone we may know would see me here, but I came anyway! I assumed that the program was only for people with alcohol and addiction issues. Was I ever wrong about that. That Sunday evening I was welcomed by so many friendly faces, but at the same time I remember feeling unworthy to be back in a church.

 

"How could God forgive me for everything when I couldn't even forgive myself?" My past was full of things that I wasn't proud of and the fear of facing those things was scary. Before, I always put on my mask to numb out my pain… however, I’ve heard it said that "Pain is God's Megaphone" and now the time had come for me to finally face my pain.

Soon after that first visit to CR, I enrolled in a women’s step study and met wonderful ladies who didn't judge me. I realized through CR, that God will meet me right where I am. He has indeed turned my weaknesses into strength. I've learned that I don't have to be perfect. For years, I may have been fooling myself and others, but I was never fooling God. I accept that my addictions are what I did, but they certainly do NOT define who I am. My past resentments are gone, and relationships have been restored. The love and mutual respect between my dad and I is amazing, and I am so proud to be his daughter.

God gives me so much and, through CR, I try to give some of that back. It's amazing that God uses someone like me, with all my imperfections. My favorite Bible verse has always been Philippians 4:13 - "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". CR has taught me to give Him all things… there is nothing too great or too small.

 

When things get crazy and life gets hard - worrying about it means I'm not trusting Him enough! My life's not perfect, but it sure is better now… each new day brings me new hope.

 

Thank you for letting me share.

Good morning.  Growing up in a highly dysfunctional family, my struggles with food addiction started when I was a young lad around the age of nine and I have struggled with food and pornography for the last 40+ years.  In 1982 I married the love of my life, Pat.  Over the past twenty-eight years our marriage has not always been easy.  Finally, in the summer of 2007, our marriage was hitting its bottom. I was living a lie so well that I believed it myself and told myself I was doing okay.

 

While attending a men’s breakfast at our previous church, our pastor spoke but I felt he was speaking only to me.  His topic… “Drastic times call for drastic measures”.  He encouraged me to confess my sin and deal with it no matter what the costs.  He implored me to not let Satan, the “supreme spirit of evil and unrighteousness” control my life anymore.  And he called upon me to confess my sin and get professional help if needed. 

 

 

Praise God for directing me to scripture found within Psalms 143; “O Lord hear my prayer; listen to my cry for mercyin your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief. Do not bring your servant into judgment, for no one living is righteous before you. The enemy pursues me, he crushes me to the ground; he makes me dwell in darkness like those long dead. So my spirit grows faint within me; my heart within me is dismayed. I spread out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.  Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. 

  

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good spirit lead me on level ground”.

 

Through these scriptures, God granted me the strength and grace to confess and share with Pat everything about my sexual integrity issues. After asking for her forgiveness and telling her I would get help, we agreed that I needed to step down from leadership of our small group. The following day I met with my co-leader Dave who shared some things with me and told me about his home church, Christ Community, and a program there called Celebrate Recovery.  The following Sunday evening, Dave accompanied me to CR and we set in on the 101 information group.   Later that week I joined a men’s 12-step study group.  The CR program works.  I now know God has forgiven me and I came to know that I could forgive myself.  I give credit to God, Christ Communitywhere we major in Love, Acceptance and Forgiveness, and to Celebrate Recovery for the positive changes in my life. 

  

In the years that I have been part of CR, I was blessed by following God, by having the opportunity to give back to others, and by serving on the CR leadership team.  Last month I started co-leading a year-long men’s  step study group.
