“The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.” Psalm 37:23-24
We had four new people at Celebrate Recovery last Friday night. Each had their own story and reasons why they came. It doesn’t really matter what brings you to Celebrate recovery, what matters is you are loved by God and you are welcomed.
Yes we each have a story to tell and some of us may think your story is more special than others. Some may think their story isn’t worth listening to. Some may think how so many people with so many hurts can find healing together. We come to Celebrate Recovery because of our hurts, habits or hang-up’s have prevented us from catching the last car of the train, the train is inching forward but we can’t quite get a footing on it. Please God, please help me get on this recovery train!
Does God hear you in your time of despair? Yes he does. He doesn’t care about the worldly stuff on his recovery train. He doesn’t care if you are black or white, red or brown, orange or blue. He isn’t focused on how much money you make or how much education you have. He’s not concerned about your status or profession. He cares about you and what you are going through. Jesus said it best, we are to love God and love people. In good times and bad, God never changes, his love for you is complete and unconditional.
So if your life has derailed and you’re trying to get back on track, listen to Jesus. He is calling out to you, “All Aboard!” With Jesus you can get on his train anytime, your ticket has been punched and it’s good for a lifetime.
Love God, love people, Jesus first!
