Learning not to feel guilty [Nov. 7th, 2005|11:43 pm]
Celebrate Recovery

[music |MercyMe - The Change Inside of Me]

Cross-posted to celeb_recovery and my personal LJ:

I went out to Celebrate Recovery at Northway Fellowship tonight, and I realized some things about my inability to keep the rules.

Tonight I need to let go of feeling guilty about loving people too much - coloring outside the lines, stepping out of my place. I broke the rules at CR tonight and engaged in cross-talk with S., because my heart went out to her, in a way that rose up inside me so powerfully that I could not hold back. Ever since I started with CR at Fulmont two years ago, I have had this overflow of all of the love that I want to give to jesusochild and freedbyjc2003 and scotspiper84, that can't be expressed to them nearly as much as I want, but that refuses to stay locked up inside me, and insists on finding someone else to love.

I shouldn't have engaged in cross-talk. That was wrong. But I need to remind myself, as I feel so guilty about it, that it isn't wrong to feel love for people. It isn't wrong for me to want to help the people who are in my life now, and the people I miss so much and feel I may have lost, and the new people who enter my life each day.

While I was at CR tonight, I heard this song, and it really spoke to me tonight.

Wednesday evening online chats [May. 12th, 2004|08:35 pm]

Hi all. Once again nobody is showing up for the Wednesday evening online chat. I'd like to give it one more week, and then stop the weekly chats and remove the reference from the website. Is that OK with everyone?

Limiting membership [Apr. 28th, 2004|10:58 pm]

For the moment, until our leadership team has the opportunity to discuss this, I am going to limit membership in this community to participants in the Celebrate Recovery program at Fulmont Community Church. We will talk about the possibility of opening this community to other LJ'ers.

mandapanda642, you didn't do or say anything wrong. I'm just keeping this community semi-private for the moment, until our group leadership decides otherwise.

My Birthday was really good. I can't believe that i am finally 25 years old. It's scary for me to realize that i am 25 years old. I don't feel different. Another year as my uncle said to me earlier in an email that he wrote me. My mom tried to sing to me tonight and so did my father.Brendon as many of you know is my boyfriend even sang to me.

The CR website at http://www.celebraterecoveryfulmont.org is back up. I will be doing some editing on it during this week, now that I have access again, and I expect that I will eventually be moving it to become a sub-site of fulmont.com.

I'm glad I didn't panic this time. :-)

I am calmer than I thought I would be about the website problem. I know that you all have been praying for me on my control issues and I appreciate it. I think I'm really getting an answer to your prayers and mine in the area of worrying less, and becoming more able to relinquish control and trust God to do the right thing.

Tonight [Feb. 13th, 2004|08:35 am]
Celebrate Recovery

The question isn't whether we are ready, but whether God is.

How's this for a scripture for us tonight? Isaiah 49:8-10

8 Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;

9 That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Show yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.

10 They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
