Regaining Trust While in Recovery

Posted by Men of Redemption on November 29, 2017

REGAINING TRUST WHILE IN RECOVERY 

“Focus on You, Not Your Wife!”      

If we want trust to return guys, we need to stop looking at our wives during the process. Look at where our focus and energies are guided towards-our wives, and that detracts from our efforts to stay consistent with what we have agreed to do! And our wives see this! I’ve learned over the years that my recovery is my recovery. If I want to regain my wife’s trust, then I need to keep my eyes on God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide me, to teach me, to help me not lean unto my own understanding, and trust Him to do what I cannot do. Trust, in the early stages of recovery is so far down the road that we shouldn’t even be looking for it or at it! We have too much to work on, and that is exactly what our wives are praying that we do. I dare this, but I believe we must first learn to trust ourselves all over again with a new, transformed thought process of dependability and desire, and that can only come from God Almighty Himself! Our wives want to see us trust the process, doing what we have agreed to do in recovery and with a genuine heart to match. So when the Lord God allows us to wake up in the morning, remember, when we go to look in the mirror we only see one person, not ourselves and our wife. Lord God, help me do me, and the rest will take care of itself!

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”  –  Matthew 6:33

What’s Your Question About Being in Recovery?

Posted by Men of Redemption on November 29, 2017

MY QUESTION IS . . . . Image result for helping other men

“Since being in recovery for my addictive behaviors, I’ve learned a lot about myself, my issues and understanding who I really am. I want to help other men who are struggling with the same issues that I have and help them begin to walk in purity and wholeness. It’s been a little over a couple of years in recovery for me so how can I help others receive what I have received?” 

This is very encouraging to hear. Most men in recovery would rather go through the process, get their healing, feel good about themselves after discovering how they can walk in the newness of life and then walk away from their group with nothing else to say. Wow! With that being said, I would suggest to you to speak with your group leader from your support group about possibly being considered to becoming a co-leader in your group. This way, you can work alongside a group leader, become actively involved in sharing and facilitating group activity and dynamics as a true example and product of the group. This opportunity will be a tremendous blessing to those men who join the group, having understanding that the leaders are considered from those who have been through the group and are actively being utilized in support for other men as well. This is huge for any group-it’s discipleship at its best! This is exactly what most groups are looking for. By staying true to your commitment to helping others, this will impact so many men because they are looking for real, true examples in the group, and with you having been in the group for two years plus you are exactly what they are looking for in what real recovery looks like. I applaud you my friend!

My Daily Devotion – My Quiet Time With God

Posted by Men of Redemption on November 29, 2017

DON’T WORRY IN LIFE BECAUSE JESUS IS THERE Image result for do not worry

Today’s Reading: Luke 12:22-34 . . . .

“Then He said to His disciples, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith? “And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
