Thank you, L.I.F.E. Ministries, for the profound impact you've had on me

by Rob S

 

Thank you, L.I.F.E. Ministries, for the profound impact you've had on me. For the first time in my life, I'm finding success in the battle against addiction. After 15 years of a near-daily struggle with pornography, I have recently attained 9 months of sexual sobriety. Nothing I've pursued in the past has lead to more than a few weeks of living in freedom. The Biblical material in the L.I.F.E. Guide and the structure of the groups is so effective at getting to the root causes of the acting out symptoms. I cherish the deep relationships that have formed in my L.I.F.E. Group.
 
Something that stands out as particularly impactful was reading the assignment on Identifying our Roots and Desires (Principle One, Assignment Three). As I read the first page of that assignment about being numb and not feeling anything most of the time, the words leapt off the page in how perfectly they described the past 2 decades of my life. The prior several months of emotional roller-coaster suddenly made sense, as I realized that for the first time in my adult life I was actually feeling. It was such a powerful new self-awareness, that it was almost too much to bear. But even in the midst of the crushing weight of that revelation, I knew that incredible life change was being birthed.
