John from The Eclectic Contrarian and I were chatting in the comment section of my Couch Experience and his comments sparked a thought. Here is his comment (used with permission, though it's not like you can't go and read the comment on the post..duh. But I do always ask first before sharing. John ~ ....But… Continue reading Change Before The First Tear Falls
This brought me to tears. People just do not understand the power of prayer until they truly witness it first hand.
I am just blown away by this post and the openness in which Cynthia shares her story with us. What a powerful testimony of what God can do if we simply get out of His way.
God bless you sis!
You don’t have to believe in God to pray. That’s what our Sexual Recovery Therapist told my husband as he outlined the sex addiction recovery program my husband was about to begin. Having a day bookended by prayer wouldn’t have fazed me too much. As a Christian, I didn’t spend as much time talking to God as I could or should have. Twice a day would have been a stretch. But something I would have readily agreed to as a part of my recovery program.

I praise God for the last answer he gave….He is pursuing his wife and learning to love himself…probably for the first since he was a teen…

Note: Been a while since I’ve posted anything … the below entry is based on questions related to the book “Surfing for God” that I am reading through with a group. Questions are in bold and my reflections are below them.
How does “I’m tired of how little porn/sexual behaviors delivers” apply to you?
Porn and sexual behaviors have been completely destructive in my life. It was like an invasive poison ivy that was let in, and then started to spread its vine just underneath the soil. As the first leaves started to sprout, it was too late. Soon many leaves along an intricate network of vines made life a minefield, and I had given up, accepted the poison inside of me and the rashes as a part of me. But God has lifted me out of that underbrush. I cannot go back to it. It never delivered what…

In part one, I mentioned that I would be discussing the aspect of finding someone to stand by your side by being your accountability partner. The only way I can do that, of course, is from my own personal experiences... True accountability was not something I truly understood when I started my recovery from porn.… Continue reading The Bond Of 3 Cords | Part 2

I believe it is time to try something else a little different. I am planning on doing a three part series, with this one being...well...the introduction. There are two reasons for me wanting to do this. The first is the most obvious...I have a tendency to ramble and/or get off topic. The second reason is… Continue reading The Bond Of 3 Cords | Part 1
