If you want to be sober for the next year, stay sober for the next day.
How did God do his work in the Old Testament? When the Israelites were fighting for their very lives, staving off the enemy, God stepped in. They did all they could, then God did what only he could do. We read how he did it.
“Little by little I will drive them out” (Exodus 23:30).
Notice, God didn’t promise to drive out the enemy all at once. It would be a slow process. That’s how most wonderful things are done – little by little.
Confucius nailed it: “The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”
Recovery Step: Want to move the mountain of recovery? Start carrying some small stones today.
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.
