Two Online Groups Starting

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

At Genesis Biblical Solutions, we know the value of support, and what it means to anyone who is going through a crisis in a relationship, or struggle with a life-dominating issue. You're not meant to go through this alone--that's why I'm starting two online support groups, beginning in March. Register now by checking out the info below: The Game Plan Men's Purity Group Based on his 5-step plan, ROUTE, men will learn specific steps to take, how to establish order, deal with cycles of temptation, and get off the "rollercoaster" by Continue Reading

Releasing Your Wounder

forgive

We’ve all got them – wounds, past injuries of the soul that still show themselves, either in the way we relate, or the pain we feel. I've learned a lot by examining my own, and those of the people I've been blessed to work with over the years. Continue Reading

Nice Flesh

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. -Galatians 5:19 When you’ve struggled with a “juicy” sin, it’s easy to judge your whole life by how well or how poorly you’re handling that one behavior. Folks who are alcoholic can do this by assuming that as long as they’re sober, then they’re doing well. Drug addicts, gamblers and Continue Reading

Walking Strong

Every Monday we’ll post something to do with maintaining sexual purity. Hope it helps. — Walking Strong This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. (Galatians 5:16) I’ve finally gotten back into serious workouts after a more than twenty year hiatus, and I’m glowing. Energy’s high, stress is hugely reduced, sleep is deeper, and – (drum roll) – I’ve all but lost my taste for fast foods. That may be the biggest miracle, because hamburgers and burritos have been my bad company for too long, and Continue Reading

Blew It Again

Every Monday we’ll post something to do with maintaining sexual purity. Hope it helps. — Blew It Again Day has begun and I’m already sinning Help me to change this heart that I have Lord, help me taste of the grace that You’re giving. I want to be a spiritual man. - from “Let the Old Man Die” lyrics by Chuck Butler When God puts His finger on a part of your life needing change, a new standard is birthed. Something you may have found acceptable is unacceptable now, making abstinence from that “something” a part of your new Continue Reading

Releasing My Wounder

forgive

Every Thursday I’ll post an article having to do with either relational or emotional matters. Hope it helps. — Releasing My Wounder We’ve all got them – wounds, past injuries of the soul that still show themselves, either in current pain or current behavior. They can show themselves in current pain through memories that just won’t die. Sometimes a mental picture of a traumatic event, like a childhood humiliation or tragedy, keeps intruding into your thoughts. Maybe you let yourself relive it, and all the pain of the event comes Continue Reading

Avoiding the Holiday Relapse

stressed

Every Monday we’ll post something to do with maintaining sexual purity. Hope it helps. — Avoiding the Holiday Relapse We dress up and stress up for the Season. No avoiding it. Money is tight when we most want to spend it; schedules are crammed; old or unresolved family issues are highlighted; everything’s hectic, crowded, rushed. So while the notion of depression rates rising this time of year is open to challenge it’s a given that stress, along with waist size and carols, rises considerably. So it’s no surprise when the weakness Continue Reading

The Accountability Bond

friends

Every Thursday we’ll post something having to do with relationships and/or emotions. Hope it helps. --- The Accountability Bond Sometimes my accountability partner and I picture the doomsday scenario of a relapse. It’s morbid, imagining the ways we handle it if we broke our sobriety, and we shudder when we picture the outcome. Relapse is one of the worst types of nightmares, so at times we ward our fear of it off by joking about it, the way people sometimes joke about The Big One dropping – it could happen, but we’re not counting on Continue Reading
