An Invitation To Soul Delight

In recovery, we need to be nourished. The nourishment at God’s feast does more than please our taste-buds. This meal is more than mere esthetic pleasure. The nourishment from God’s table feeds our souls with delight.

As Our Thinking Changes

Join us as we look at ways our thought patterns change once we enter recovery. What happens when we begin to follow directions, develop a relationship with our creator and begin to experience power flow in where there once was none? Also, a quick look at 7 things some people think are cool, that others think are silly, stupid and ridiculous. And, in addition to the Monty’man’s Weekly Whine, we are introducing the Monty’man’s Weekly Win. Closing Song: What Would Love Do? by Elizabeth Edwards http://www.elizabethemusic.com

Recovery As Seeing The Light

In our recovery, God’s light is like the light of dawn. It is a light that signals that something new is happening. A new beginning is possible. This is the light of hope.

Recovery As Pressing On

The process of recovery restructures our lives in some very fundamental ways. Some days we desire our recovery to be finished, but we must press on as our lives depend upon the process that God has set before us on this incredible journey.

Recovery As Growing Up

It is a good thing to grow up. Not because it’s shameful to be a child, but because growth is part of God’s plan for us. For those of us in recovery, it is as much a part of our journey as understanding our powerlessness and our need for a Higher Power to help us solve our problem.

Recovery As Being Nourished

We don’t grow in our recovery out of having needs. But as we experience love and nourishment, we gradually become less frantic about our next meal. We grow. We heal.

Recovery As Being Found

It’s easy to get lost. We find that we don’t know how to escape and we feel like no one will find us. But God searches for the one who is lost and rejoices when He finds us. There is no shame, no blame and no guilt trips to be given. We have been found.

Confessions of a Codependent

Codependency is a type of dysfunctional helping relationship where one person supports or enables another person’s addiction, poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility, or underachievement. Among the core characteristics of codependency, the most common theme is an excessive reliance on other people for approval and a sense of identity. (Wikipedia)

Also, new evidence that long term marijuana use can cause serious health issues. Play Take 12 Trivia and enjoy a codependent love song by Scott Kalechstein www.scottsongs.com

God Rejoices Over Us

God is a good Father. God values us. Even when we are unable to call for help, God searches for us. When we are found, it brings God great joy.
