Vision 360

July 13, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.” Galatians 6:1 I was taking a long bicycle ride around Loveland a while ago when I remembered an event years before on the same route that almost cost me my life. I was riding down […]

God’s Will

July 06, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become […]

Accept What You Can’t Change

June 22, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.” Philippians 2:13 I believe that acceptance is the key to maintaining sanity in your life. I have been praying the short version of the serenity prayer for a long time: “God grant me the serenity to accept the […]

Codependent Recovery

June 15, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“My grace is enough for you: for where there is weakness, my power is shown the more completely.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (PH) Last Friday, we talked about codependency in our live CR Facebook and share group meetings. It’s always a topic that is confusing to many. After all, aren’t we supposed to help people and serve […]

We Are in This Together

June 08, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that […]

Liminal Space in Recovery

May 04, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2 NIV I was reading Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditation last week as he talked about liminal space. He explains […]

Make the List

April 21, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

I have a question for you. When your world turns upside down, fear lurking all around, doubt and worry occupy your mind, and isolation occurring most of the time; what do you do? Its pandemic time and these descriptive words are more than English rhyme, its what really occupies our mind a lot of the […]

Transformation From The Inside Out

April 13, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 My hope […]

Surrender is the Way

April 06, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” Colossians 3:16 I was reading Richard Rhor’s “Daily Meditation” last week when I came across his message about giving up control as a gateway for a deeper spiritual relationship with God. He quoted Dr. Gerald May on willingness vs willfulness: “Willingness implies a surrendering of one’s […]
