March 30, 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 Anybody out there stuck […]

Delusion of Control

March 23, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 These are dangerous and crazy times we are living in. When the world around you seems out of control, what can you do? God is a good start. Remembering how He designed us, gives us some control […]

Victory Over Trouble

March 16, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

In Celebrate Recovery, we talk about our troubles. Some come from our own making and some do not. Some we have control over and some we do not. Some happen to us without any fault of our own. While we may have troubles, it’s important to know that God has the solution. “I have told […]

February 17, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.” John 10:10 (TLB) Fitting in is something many of us have struggled with over the years. Where do we fit in with God, family, work, community? Have you ever asked yourself “Why am I here”? I did all the time before I met God in […]

Let Go So You Can Grow

February 10, 2020, By: Dana Cramer

“Be honest in your estimate of yourselves… Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good. Love each other… Be patient in trouble… Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honest clear through.” Romans 12:3-17 (TLB) We talk a lot in Celebrate Recovery about “Letting Go.” It’s a process […]

God of Hope

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 When God speaks of hope it comes with the reality that there is a struggle within us or around us. If there were no […]
