Hey Everybody,

LMA Christ-Centered Recovery Group (We Are All Recovering From Something)

LMA Group Guidelines LMA is based on two themes: "we Are All Recovering From Something" and "All Are lncluded." As we know, many of our participants struggle with substance abuse and/or dependence. Yet, even the 12-step model (according to the AA text, better known as the Big Book) states that alcohol is but a symptom; ..... (i.e., drugs are a symptom, sin/wrongdoing are symptoms.....). Our premise is that we suffer from a much deeper malady than the substance or the behavior; Our Spiritual Condition and Spiritual ldentitv are the keys to our recovery, redemption, and overall healing. We are not here to force our beliefs or views on one another but to seek a closer relationship with Jesus christ and one another. our goal is to grow in our spiritual life and experience a more abundant life due to growing relationships. Let us read from Galatians 2:?0 (TPT): My old identity has been co-crucified with Christ and no longer lives. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed one lives his life through me-we live in union as onel My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, dispensing his life into minel Grace is God's unconditional love and pure goodness perpetually in action, working all things for the good (Divine lnfluence) to help everyone know and enjoy and experience abundant life by relating to us personally. Energizing and empowering us to be all God created us to be. Energizing and empowering us to do all God created us to do. He is continually showing us that God is PURE goodness. He is constantly showing us that God is totally for us. Continually showing us that God 38 has forgiven, accepted, and included us in Their relationship and chose us before creation. Constantly reminding us that there is not and never has been separated from God for anyone. communicating with us how They see us and everyone. continually reminding us that we died, we no longer live, but Christ lives in us, through us and as us. He reminds us that we are one with the Father, Jesus, the Holy spirit, and everyone. He is reminding us that They are working on every situation for the good of us and everyone. Producing effortless change in us as we dwell in seamless union with the Trinity. Grace is a Person, continually revealing to us what God wants us to say and do in every situation (paul Gray - Grace is.) 2 Corinthians 13:14 says, "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy spirit, be with you all." Amen Look over these guidelines and reflect upon the guidance they provide.....meditate on the wisdom shared….. Proverbs 3:5 Wisdom’s Guidance Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. Trust in our God (Father-Son-Spirit); rely on God's guidance…. Enough said……
