God-Centered Recovery Help for Abuse, Eating Disorders & Victims of Sex Trafficking


jesus christ resourcesGet Support & Help. Somewhere we may have picked up the idea that it's not okay to ask for help -- perhaps it's the shame we feel, or that asking for help would be a sign of weakness. Jesus came to earth so every person "may have life, and have it to the full" (John 10:10). Today, embrace the abundant, authentic and extraordinary life Jesus promised.

Ford Taylor said, “Transformation is a process; not an event.” Recovery calls for some basic changes in our thinking. Now is the best time to reach out and ask for help from God, our family and friends. It's hard. We may be afraid of rejection. But once we've taken that step and openly asked for help, we realize our fears are a part of the past.

It's important to get as much help as possible. Different sources of information and support give us a number of perspectives on what's going on, and this can help break the rigid patterns of our disease. In asking for help, we acknowledge that we can't do it all by ourselves. That gives others great joy in helping us.Message Boards (chats) are a wonderful source of information, support and encouragement. They are a great place to find a recovery buddy, post your prayer requests, discuss recovery and get your questions answered. The more you participate the more support and encouragement you will receive. But, message boards/chats are not to be confused with group therapy or professional counseling sessions. They are solely for you to share one another's personal experience, strength and hope.

A Note about Message Boards (chats): These are a wonderful source of information, support and encouragement. They are a great place to find a recovery buddy, post your prayer requests, discuss recovery and get your questions answered. The more you participate the more support and encouragement you will receive. But, message boards/chats are not to be confused with group therapy or professional counseling sessions. They are solely for you to share one another's personal experience, strength and hope.
