When in mental illness recovery, we thrive and grow from peoples stories of perseverance and ability to stay stable through times of adversity. We learn new ways to manage episodes that we live with daily. When we can also hear stories from people who live in the spotlight, in one way or another, through all of the stress, criticism, adversity, and more, we take much strength from that. The people who live in the spotlight and can still manage their mental illness diagnosis, is something to admire.
Over the next 8 weeks I plan to release a blog post each week that talks about the RECOVERY path from the Celebrate Recovery Bible and workbooks that go with it. It is a very inspirational path that takes from some well known recovery programs and ideas and puts them into a Christian perspective. I encourage you if you are new to your recovery, or already in it, to read through this. It put a new light on some old ways.
If you have any songs you think would fit with the individual topics below, let me know in the comments section.
PRINCIPLE VII: EXPERIENCE HEART-POUNDING LIFE PURPOSE – I’M LIVING IN THE CENTER OF GOD’S WILL.
