TESTIMONIES – Serenity Prayer Testimonies
If recovery teaches us anything, it is the importance of surrender. We have to be wiling to accept that there are many things in this world that we are simply powerless to control. We come to learn that we are not responsible for others and their choices but only for ourselves, our behaviors, choices and reactions to those around us. If we desire to respond with the heart of Christ, we must be surrendered to Him and trust Him to make all things right.
At the end of a hard week, entering the doors of Celebrate Recovery can feel like taking a fresh breath. And when we stand together and say the Serenity Prayer, we are reminded of exactly who God is calling us to be. Come this week and hear mini testimonies of how the Serenity Prayer has given some individuals the much-needed strength to move forward in some very difficult and uncertain circumstances.
“Love does not delight in evil but always rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 Corinthians 13: 6-7
Principle 1: Realize I’m not God. I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.
“Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.” Matthew 5:3
Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.
“I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.” Romans 7:18
