God has given you all the tools necessary to secure your recovery. Paul said it like this: “God supplies seed to the sower” (2 Corinthians 9:10). The Holy Spirit has planted within you all that you need to begin the journey.
God has supplied you with the seed, but it’s up to you to do something with it.
The good news is that, no matter the carnage that your addiction may have left behind, your potential is unspeakable.
Robert Schuller had a great take on this. “Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in the seed.”
Recovery Step: You have more apples in your seed than you can imagine. God has created you for greatness. The next move is yours.
Mark and Beth Denison, married for 36 years, launched There’s Still Hope as a national movement to call men and women into lives of sexual integrity. Their ministry offers 90-day recovery plans for addicts and one-on-one and group coaching for addicts and their spouses. TSH also produces resources for pastors and churches to confront the porn epidemic that is destroying so many lives.
Dr. Denison was a senior pastor for over 30 years, NBA chaplain, and board chairman at Houston Baptist University three times. With a Master’s Degree in Addiction Recovery, Mark is a certified PSAP and active member of the American Association of Christian Counselors.
Mark has written four books on recovery: Porn in the Pew, 365 Days to Sexual Integrity, A 90-Day Recovery Guide, and 40 Days to Porn-Free Living. His latest book, Jesus on the 12 Steps, will be released later this year.
