Testimony – PAUL & MANDIE
It is such a blessing when those who have gone before us & navigated the winding road of recovery are willing to invest in others by sharing what they have learned & all that the Lord has done in their lives. Come this Thursday night & allow the Lord to encourage you & renew your hope through Paul & Mandie as they share some of their recovery journey with us.
“Despite the beginnings of a new awareness inside myself, our problems at home continued. When Mandie asked for a separation, I began to theorize that if I’d been seeking God more actively before becoming engaged, He might have led us in a different direction. I took this theory to the pastor of our church for validation, where he explained that God wasn’t asleep at the wheel when we married, and instead of signing my divorce permission slip, told me about something called a step study and a ministry that met on Thursday nights called Celebrate Recovery.”
“He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:17
Principle 2: Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that He has the power to help me recover.
“Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4
Step 2: We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
“For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.” Philippians 2:13
