We are told that time heals all wounds.
That is not true.
We are told that if we just try hard enough we can be perfect.
That is also not true.
Celebrate Recovery recognizes that we all have hurts, habits and hang-ups.
We have been hurt in life and as it says in Jeremiah 6:14 “You cannot heal a hurt by saying that it is not there.” You have to work through that hurt or that hurt is going to continue to work on you.
We all have habits that are not God’s plan. It says in Jeremiah 29:11 “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.”
Life on life’s terms in tough and it is easy to get hung-up somewhere along that line. Jesus wants us to have freedom and tells us in Matthew 11:28 “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered and Biblically balanced 12 Step recovery program that was started 29 years ago at Saddleback Church with Pastors Rick Warren and John Baker and now is in more than 30,000 churches in over 38 countries.
Everyone can benefit from Celebrate Recovery. It helps those with all kinds of additions to drugs, alcohol, gambling, pornography and food; codependency; grief; anxiety and depression; abuse and trauma; control issues and more. You name it and if a human being has to deal with it then Jesus through Celebrate Recovery can help it.
There is also a children program for those 5 to 12 called Celebration Place and a teen version called the Landing. The whole family can come to Celebrate Recovery.
There is no need to sign up. You can just show up at a CR near you. And it is free.
There are 4 Celebrate Recovery meetings in 4 churches on different nights in Harrison County…and more than 50 in WV.
