Genesis 2:3  And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation. Rest is important to maintaining balance in our recovery. We live in an action-oriented world. There always seems to be something to do, someone […]

Isaiah 58:11 I will always show you where to go. I’ll give you a full life in the emptiest of places– firm muscles, strong bones. You’ll be like a well- watered garden, a gurgling spring that never runs dry. This week at Celebrate Recovery on Thursday we are […]

Jeremiah 32:18-19 You are loyal and kind to thousands of people, but you also bring punishment to children for their fathers’ sins. Great and powerful God, your name is the LORD All-Powerful. 1You plan and do great things. You see everything that people do. You give a reward to those […]

2 Kings 5:14 So Naaman did what the man of God said. He went down and dipped himself in the Jordan River seven times, and he became pure and clean. His skin became soft like the skin of a baby. In the mirror today, what do I see? In […]

Luke 1:46-47 I’m bursting with God- news; I’m dancing the song of my Saviour God. We are mistaken if we think we can work out the mind of God. Nor will we ever find out all the answers of all God’s dealings with us. But we can be […]

Lamentations 3:21-22 I still dare to hope when I remember this:The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. There are plenty of times in our lives when God says ‘WAIT!’. Things He promises us will happen, when they are meant to. Not when we […]

Philippians 4:14 it was good of you to share in my troubles. Last night at Celebrate Recovery in Melbourne we had a terrific time of worship, fellowship, sharing with and caring about each other. It was especially good to talk to people one on one before and after […]
