In Jeremiah 29:11, God makes clear to us that His plans are to prosper us, not to harm us.
When David first came to group, he was very full of his own importance. He felt that he had achieved so much in his life that this CR should be easy. On more than one occasion he and I went toe to toe in group on input he received that he disagreed with. Over time, Davids commitment to God won out and he saw how God wanted to help him to be whole again. He graduated the group and has stayed clean to this day. This article needs to be written not because David is such a great guy but because God is such an awesome God. It is here to encourage you out there that God is alive and well and He is willing and wanting to be a part of your life.
