Testimony–SANITY: Ryan & Nicole
“On hearing this, Jesus said, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.'” Mark 2:17
“Ryan wasn’t talking to me because we were broken up and my father wasn’t talking to me because I had just yelled at him for ruining my life. So, I ran into the arms of my Heavenly Father. And there I began to see healing. I realized my life of controlling my food, my exercising, my parents’ relationship, and trying to get people to like me, was insane. I never got anywhere. I examined all of my relationships and all my past hurts, habits, unhealthy relationships. But the GREATEST thing was that I learned I didn’t have to live with this feeling of changing who I am so I could be “enough” for other people. I can be who God has created me to be, and feel fully satisfied in Him.”
“Though I was quick to state my problem, I learned through CR to be patient with the process. I was untangling years of issues, deceit and destructive behavior with these men, week in and week out. This was not going to be an overnight process. CR taught me through the process that there were leaders and men I could trust. We were in the trenches together and we were going to persevere as long God was the restorer and we stayed the course.”
“Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart.” 2 Corinthians 4:1
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
