celebrate recovery - On summer hiatus

A journey toward renewal

The purpose of WellSpring's Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the 12 Steps and Recovery Principles. This experience allows us to "be changed." We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God's grace in solving our lives' problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power - Jesus Christ.

Daily Bible Reading

Click here to go to today's reading. 


What is a daily devotion and how do I do it? 


Devotions are a wonderful and critical part of any believer's growth in Jesus. It's an opportunity to take time each day to connect with and hear from the Lord. Devotions are about being discipled by the Holy Spirit. 


Below is a description of how to journal what you've heard from the Lord as you read. We use the accrostic W.A.S.H. to help keep our journalling on track. 


Let's get started... 


W is for Word

Before you begin ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and to reveal Jesus to you. Read the passages. As you are reading, underline anything the Lord impresses to your life personally. Then turn to a fresh page in your journal to write the verses that God has just shown you. 


A is for Apply

Now enter how you can apply the verse(s) to you personally. 


S is for Serve

Next enter how you can serve others based on the verse(s) you've written down. 


H is for Heart-to-Heart

Finally write a prayer that expresses a heart-to-heart conversation with the Lord. 


The Gospel of John tells us that the Word became flesh in Jesus. Jesus told Simon Peter that He washes the feet of His disciples. A daily time in the Word of God (The Bible) is like getting a good wash.

Why should I believe what the Bible says? 

How do I know I can trust it? 

After all, it's thousands of years old!


That's a valid concern, so Harvest Ministries put together a little e-book that touches on the credibility of Scripture. It's called Is the Bible Reliable? and it's yours for free if you're interested.

I hope it helps you feel more confident in answering difficult questions as you get out there and share your faith!
