The average person makes 35,000 decisions per day. And after we make decisions, our decisions make us.
The Bible offers lots of help in this arena.
“Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed” (Proverbs 15:22).
“In all your ways, acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:6).
You will make a bunch of decisions today, whether you want to or not. So you might as well make some good ones. For example, decide to spend a few minutes with God in prayer this morning. Decide to take custody of your eyes. Decide against porn and for purity. Choose sobriety for the next 24 hours.
Recovery Step: Make a few good decisions today. Tomorrow will thank you.
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.
