What Are You Learning in Recovery?

April 14, 2010

The best blogs that happen on Porn to are the ones where we share what we’re learning in recovery.

What are the fresh insights you’re learning?

What was said in your group this week that make the light go on for you?

What nugget did your counselor say to you that really helped you?

I asked these questions of one of our commentors and here’s what he said.  He shares some of the same feelings many of out have a bout the painful recovery process: 

Brokenness hurts.  Coming to the end of myself hurts.  It hurts having all my ‘safe’ structures crash, my relationship with my wife fracture, and everything else seem to fall in a heap of rubble.   

Then he shares how his Celebrate Recovery program is helping him get a higher view of recovery: 

Through Celebrate Recovery I am beginning to realize that brokenness has a purpose.  Brokenness must do its work in order in me for Resurrection to take place.  If I rush through recovery or my wife and I hurry to get back to normal, we’ll never be what we could be.  We’ll never get  to where we need to be.  God allows brokenness that we might come to a place where all we have left is Christ.

Well said!  I really appreciate when our readers take the time to write in and share their struggles. 

Drop us a line and let us know the great lessons you are learning in your recovery process.  They can be a real help to others. 

I’ll keep your comments anonymous.

    I am learning that keeping to myself is not beneficial. I am really drunk on lust right now but I have been texting and emailing today and I will get on the phone on my way home from work. I am powerless alone but with my brothers in recovery we are powerful. I am only barely learning how to tap into that power.

    I am definately at a end of myself, my marriage is a pile of smoldering rubble.
    I have all these things going on in my mind , but through it all I am starting to see things differently. I am totally relying on my Lord to help me with my wife and the rest of my life.
    In a way I am glad that it has happened, because now I pray more. I am seeking and running after my Lord for all of his help. I am broken on the inside and every day it takes me relying on his spirit to help me through. I want to rush through , but the answer came to me one night after I prayed to him, he said in a really strong impression “you have to go through this”. So now I pray for his help each day to continue to get through this with his help to me and my wife.
