Regaining Trust While in Recovery

Posted by Men of Redemption on December 4, 2017

Spend Time Communicating with Your Wife About Trust and What It Looks Like To Her   

Now that you’ve consistently have your recovery moving in a good direction, meeting daily disciplines and making time to allow God to be the head of your life instead of yourself, and your wife sees that consistency, she’s might just be ready to have communication with transparency about what trust looks like from her perspective. She’s watched you from afar, from the living room all the way to the bedroom, and she’s observed a pattern of consistency that makes her feel a little more comfortable and at peace than she’s felt in a while. Now is the time to begin talking, sharing about she feels, and what her thoughts and concerns are about trust, and trusting you again. Jackie and I have many talks, discussions about trust and what it looks like to her. The key to those talks were to let her talk-not me. I listened because I wanted to hear her heart not mind. It’s important for me to hear and listen to her at this critical point because it’s wasn’t about me at this juncture of my recovery. It was about me taking the time hear her, to listen to what’s inside of her, all those desires, thoughts and dreams that I had neglected to pay attention to because of my addictive behaviors and my selfishness. It’s something about when I give Jackie my full, undivided attention that makes her feel like she’s number one; that she’s the most important person in life to me; that there is no other person on earth that matters to me but her. I had to learn to do that, and I’m so glad I did. These days, I make a point daily to remind her of that-that she is the most important person to me. This began to empower the desire of trust to gradually return with a renewed understanding of who she is to me. And that brings me to a familiar scripture reference that I try to remember always . . . . 

Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.”   –  1 Peter 3:7

My Daily Devotion – My Quiet Time With God

Posted by Men of Redemption on December 4, 2017

 ERROR AND GREED Image result for greed

Today’s Reading: 1 Timothy 6: 3-10 . . . .

“If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself. Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
