Item description for Getting Right with God, Yourself, and Others (Celebrate Recovery #3) by John Baker & Rick Warren...
Overview Realize I'm not God. I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable. "Happy are those who know they are spiritually poor." Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that He has the power to help me recover. "Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control. "Happy are the meek." Openly examine and confess my faults to God, to myself, and to someone I trust. "Happy are the pure in heart." Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects. "Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires." Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I've done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others. "Happy are the merciful." "Happy are the peacemakers." Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and gain the power to follow His will. Yield myself to be used by God to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and by my words. "Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires."

CR participants guide 3 Aug 6, 2009
I order these participant guides for my Celebrate Recovery group. They are part of the "plan" and we must use them. It's great to be able to order them all from one seller, which in the past has been a problem. Thank you.

The Celebrate Recovery workbooks helped me to define who I am in Christ! I wrote and answered questions about my past hurts and addictions. Then I read the verses suggested in the books and filled up with TRUTH. I met people, got honest and built relationships with others too! These are great tools that dig deep into your heart and helped me find the holy spirit waiting to guide me thru it!
