Praising the Lord this morning for allowing me the oportunity last night to share what He has done in my life!
He took me from:
~ a person full of selfishness and pride
~ a person who with low self-image and very little self-love
~ a person so wrapped up in pleasing others
~ a person who had an extensive "mask" collection
~ a person with no boundaries
~ a person bound by fear
And as I became willing to give Him EVERYTHING (bad and good) He has restored to me the Joy of my salvation
By finding a place where I could learn to be the real me in front of God and others and I could work through the Biblical principles of recovery (through Celebrate Recovery), He is "restor(ing) the years the locusts have eaten" (Joel 2:25).
I came into recovery like He says in Matthew 11:18 "weary and carry(ing) heavy burdens" and He "gave me rest"! I rest in Him and live in His will for my life. What FREEDOM!
"Show me the path where I should walk, O Lord; point out the right road for me to follow." Psalm 25:4
