My husband and I went for an hour drive to attend a Celebrate Recovery meeting so we could understand how it works. I’ve been telling people we’re going to start a group on May 5, and he’s been telling me that’s too soon. “How can we possibly be ready?”
After we experienced the gathering, it seemed it will take a year maybe. We’ll keep preparing and praying and see where it goes.
Part of the procedure tonight was a celebration of people for resisting whatever is plaguing them – addiction or a bad habit from a hurt received in life. When someone was thirty days free of their addiction or life controlling habit, they received a coin with an imprint and a big shout of encouragement from the crowd. Sixty days, a leader called out? Another recipient, another cheer and on it went until there were no more claimants.
There was such excitement for staying the course and fighting the battle. I didn’t expect it. It was great. I hope we can do this ministry.
I hope you are well! May God bless you!
