Do I Trust God’s Good Plan For Me? Finding the Courage to Answer the Hard Questions 

Do I Trust God's Good Plan for Me?

Let’s be honest, we don’t often find ourselves on the mountain tops of life questioning God’s goodness, or His plan for us. It is in the depths that these questions surface. It is beneath the crushing weight of life’s sorrows that God’s good plan begins to feel like a far off fairy-tale written for someone else. This is when we must force ourselves to answer the question: Do I TRUST God’s GOOD plan for me?

Do I Want to Heal? Finding the Courage to Answer the Hard Questions

Do I want to Heal? Finding the courage to answer the hard questions

Do I want to heal? It seems like the answer would be obvious doesn’t it? Of course, we all want to heal! But sadly, the hard truth is, it’s often easier to stay the victim forever than it is to own our part of the problem and choose our own healing. Let’s look at how Jesus dealt with a man stuck in “victim mentality” for guidance and answers.

4 Myths about Recovery from Sexual Addiction

I hope you read last week’s post by my all-time favorite guest author, My Love!

You really don’t want to miss it. Today he’ll finish up with the last two myths about recovery. We’re looking forward to many more posts from him in the future which you’ll now be able to find under the “For Him from My Love” category.

4 Lies Sex Addicts Believe About Recovery

4 Lies Sex Addicts Believe about Recovery

I’m so excited to be sharing a 2-part post with you all this week and next written by a very special guest author: My love! You guys have been asking for this for a while, and we heard you. In fact, we’re starting a whole new category for these posts, (For Him from My Love) so you can look forward to seeing more from him in the future! Today, he’s sharing some lies sex addicts believe about recovery. Not only are these lies that held him back for many years, they’re issues we’ve seen again and again in the lives of other addicts as we’ve spent the past year working alongside other couples on the journey to recovery.

Getting to Know God the Son 

Getting to Know God the Son

We have embarked upon a 5-week study to know God. We started by learning about the Trinity – three Persons united as one God. Last week we learned about God the Father: His authority, sovereignty, adoption, discipline; His role as the One to whom we pray, and His love. This week we are going to study Scripture to learn what we can about God the Son. Friends, there is no way to contain all there is to be known of Jesus in one blog post, so this is going to be both long, and shockingly inadequate. I’ve done my best to hit the most important aspects while keeping it simple.

Getting to Know God the Father 

Getting to Know God the Father

Last week we decided to take a little break from all the betrayal trauma stuff and spend some time studying and getting to know our God. We started this five-week study by learning about the triune nature of God: how He can be both three distinct Persons, and the One God. For the next three weeks we’ll be learning about each member of the Godhead starting today with God the Father.
There are many attributes shared by all three members of the Trinity like omniscience and omnipotence, but there are also qualities that set Father, Son, and Holy Spirit apart. So, let’s take a look at some of the characteristics that make God the Father who He is.

Getting to Know God through the Trinity 

Getting to Know God through the Trinity

Let’s take a little break from all the sexual addiction and betrayal trauma content and spend a few weeks just getting to know our God a little better. Sometimes I need to step away and focus on my Savior, don’t you? Let’s spend the next 5 weeks doing a little study on God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This week we’ll learn about the Trinity. After that we’ll take three weeks dedicating one to each Person of the Godhead. Finally, in the fifth week we’ll examine our role – what should our response be to God? The goal of all this is simple: We want to know God! We want a deep and abiding relationship with Him. Every great relationship includes a sincere desire for intimacy. A quick read through of Psalms 139 demonstrates God’s personal knowledge of us, so let’s be inspired to get to know Him too.

How to Move Past the Pain: Looking Beyond Yourself when Jesus is Calling

How to Move Past the Pain: Looking Beyond Yourself when Jesus is Calling

You guys, God is doing a work in my heart! Jesus is calling to me. I have been processing with Him ever since we got back from our trip to Senegal at the beginning of June. I’ve been almost paralyzed; unable to write because there were just so many thoughts swirling around in my head. I still don’t know exactly what He’s up to, but there are some things I do know, and I’d really love to share them with you.
