You are a snowflake.
Let me explain. Think of yourself as one snowflake. Now, a single snowflake can’t make much impact on the world by itself. But when one fragile snowflake sticks with enough other snowflakes, they can stop traffic.
No one ever accomplished anything significant on his own. That is especially true of recovery. You need a therapist, sponsor, and, eventually, a sponsee. You need groups, books, podcasts, and more.
Isolation is not your friend. In fact, isolation is probably what got you in the ditch of addiction in the first place. God has a better plan. But it won’t be easy. It will require joining with other snowflakes. When you do that, your whole universe will change.
Recovery Step: The Bible says, “Two people are better than one, because they get more done by working together” (Ecclesiastes 4:9). Put that promise to the test – today.
Author: Mark Denison
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.
