You'll never guess what happened to me the other day. I was minding my business answering the phone at work when someone called from Shoreline Church inviting our church to participate in their Celebrate Recovery Seminar that they're having in February. Okay, maybe that's not a wowser moment for you. But, for me, it was further confirmation of how God is working all of this out for this book to come to life.
Okay, let me explain. While I was dealing with my then husband's sexual addiction, we attended the Sex Addict Anonymous support groups in the area, but I needed something more connected, more spiritual. I believed that God had something to say, even about sexual addiction. So, in my research online I came across Celebrate Recovery. We began attending the groups. They had several groups for us to choose from. And because I felt so encouraged from their F2F (Face to Face) support, I decided to get online daily support and I have to admit that it was many of those encouraging words and thoughts that helped me during the darkest time of my life.
After my marriage failed, I no longer attended the support groups and really put it all behind me. But, apparently God is bringing it back around to my attention as a reminder that while I'm writing this book in an effort to help others, there's no way it can be finished without including many of those things that helped me. And that includes Celebrate Recovery. Thsnk you, God, for the reminder!
If you are dealing with an addiction, habit or hangup, please check out their website and find a group in your area.
