Thursday is Lesson #22 – GRATITUDE
This week, as we approach Thanksgiving, our challenge is to turn the focus of our prayers toward gratitude in four areas of our lives: toward God, others, our recovery, and our church. We can work our way through that list, asking ourselves, “What am I thankful to God for? What am I thankful to my family for?” and so on. Whatever our answers to those questions are determine what we should then thank God for.
When we reflect on these questions, we can reflect on the last year or we can focus on what God has done for us just this past week or even today. Take a few moments this week to take stock of all that you have to be grateful for, asking the Lord to help and reveal more and more things to you.
“Give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and wonderful deeds for men.” Psalm 107:15
Principle 7: Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.
“Happy are those who Celebrate Recovery!”
Step 11: We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and power to carry that out.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” Colossians 3:16

CR One Day Seminar in Orlando
WHY SHOULD I ATTEND A NATIONAL ONE DAY TRAINING?
In ministry we have the incredible blessing to serve others in our Church and community. These people may be struggling with big struggles of hurt, fear, anger, anxiety, control issues, family chaos, addictions and more.
In ministry we can get tired, discouraged, off track or maybe even find ourselves losing our passion for ministry as a whole. We have an incredible tool in CR to help you become equipped to help those in your Church body in an effective way. Even better, we have National One Day Training’s to help train and equip you and your team on how to lead this incredible ministry of Celebrate Recovery.
Thousands of people across the globe who have attended our National One Day Training’s have expressed a great appreciation for the training’s. Why? Because they give us a place to hit the pause button in our “to-do” list and join others in sharpening our own saw.
Attending the One Day training’s reminds us that we are not alone and that we have a partner in ministry. Learning how to start and run a CR ministry in your church while gaining an army of family to walk alongside us in the journey is truly priceless. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes, “Two are better than one and a three-fold cord is not easily broken.” Our human nature is to keep our head down and try to muddle our way through life’s ministry problems.
Leave encouraged, equipped, trained and confident to grow your ministry strong.
