You’re tired of feeling. You look for something to numb the pain. You may fall into food addictions or eating disorders. Perhaps alcohol, drug, or gambling addictions seem to help you focus on something else-or help you to not focus at all.
Whatever your path to forget your sadness, it often makes your life feel like it’s spinning out of control. Relationships begin to strain. You wake up in places you’ve never seen before. It’s hard to get to work on time and get the job done right. Something has to change. And ministries like Celebrate Recovery can help.
What’s their mission?
To provide a safe place for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind to find community and freedom using a Christ-centered 12-step recovery program based on the Beatitudes (Matthew 5).
How do they accomplish this?
Celebrate Recovery: This ministry often meets in churches around America. Many locations offer dinner, worship, guest speakers, and accountability.
International Celebrate Recovery: This ministry is working to extend Celebrate Recovery worldwide by translating the program into other languages, mentoring global groups, and helping them set up locations across the world.
Why does this matter?
No one should go through struggles alone, and no one should be judged for their struggles. Creating a safe environment where people can seek help is such a crucial step to healing. And most important of all, it allows the sharing of the Gospel to the hurting and the brokenhearted. He is the only one who can provide the ultimate healing our sick souls seek.
How You Can Help:
Provide meals for your local group.
Become an accountability partner/sponsor from someone in a local group.
Start a group in your area if there is a need.
Give financially to the organization providing the facilities for your local group.
Red Letter Society shares Celebrate Recovery’s passion for the Beatitudes recorded in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5. Within this passage, Jesus teaches how we will only live a fully satisfied life by putting our hope in Him alone. We will struggle. We will experience pain. But if we put our trust in His Word and His Truth, we will receive our reward in Heaven. What a great day that will be!
