Let me offer you a challenging thought from Oswald Chambers: “God wants to do with you what he has never done with anyone else.”
Paul told young Timothy, “Put these abilities to work; throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone may notice your improvement and progress” (1 Timothy 4:15).
This is the glorious truth. God has plans for you that are unique, incredible, and beyond anything you’ve ever imagined. And nothing you have ever done has diminished that one bit. So quit living in the past and turn the page to the future.
Recovery Step: Commit your life to discovering God’s purpose. But never settle for anything less, because God wants to do with you what he has never done with anyone else.
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.
