I had the amazing priviledge during this morning's church service to see this amazing choir perform. The choir is made up of men who are recovering from substance abuse. These men are so empowering and amazing. They have all come to a place in their lives where they realized that with the help of Christ that they could recover from their substance abuse. They all have such a passion and love for Christ and are allowing Christ to guide their lives every single day, and every single step of their recovery. They made a huge impact on me, for I too am a recovering addict. Through their songs, and testimonies I found even more strength and even more desire to live my life for Christ every single day in the same way as these men. The Teen Challenge Program runs all over Canada and the US and is not government funded. Today I signed up to help 1 man go through this program by pledging only $30 a month to help cover the costs for him to enter this Christ based rehab program. There are actually men who are dying of overdoses waiting on lists to enter this program and all I had to do to help was offer $30.00 a month to potentially stop that from happening. I probably spend more than that each month on my weekly visits to Tim Hortons with my girls. By sponsoring 1 man, I am giving someone the chance to learn as I have through my recovery that Christ loves every single one of us and that Christ can help us in all we do. In Christ we will find the strength to do what we may otherwise think as the impossible. If we give Christ control of our lives and live our lives daily for Him we can be so very blessed. I encourage anyone who frequents my blog to please visit the web link I added above. Please add theses strong, brave men, and this amazing ministry to your prayers, and please, please think of sponsoring someone to go through this program. By sponsoring, we are helping to plant the seeds of God in these men who can do incredible things with their lives. I know in my recovery, God has done so many incredible things, because someone believed in me enough to stand by me.
