Celebrating Two Years of Sobriety!

“How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That he would give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure…
***
Behold the Man upon the cross
My guilt upon His shourlders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers …
***
It was my sin that held Him there
Unil it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished
***
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no powr’s, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
***
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom.”
***
This month I celebrate two years of sobriety, and a life completely turned upside down by Jesus. Freedom, peace, and life to the full. Thank you all for your continued support of this page and the ministry of truth and transformation God has allowed me to partake in.

  1. Happy Birthday Rebecca! 🙂 Last February I woke one morning and said if I call Him on this day as I have all the days before it make twenty-four years I have been sober. It was a day by day walk do not worry about tomorrow for today we live for Him. Rebecca One day at a time that is how it is done, Amen.

    • Wow, James, that is so inspiring! I can’t believe one day I’ll be able to say “I’ve been sober for twenty-plus years”. One day at a time is right, but each day gets better with Christ. 🙂

    • Thank you! I am enjoying my new life in Christ. Peace and freedom are the best terms to describe it!

  2. Congratulations! I celebrated my 3rd year this past January and I know how awesome you must feel 🙂 Praise God! He really does deliver. Not only does He turn our lives upside down but He shakes us out and fills us up with Him! I have struggled with mental health issues and addictions for most of my life it seems (I’m 53) but I’ve only had any true victory since I gave all of it to Him. I do believe that knowing our true identity, knowing who we are in Christ, is a huge factor 🙂 Praise God as you continue to minister to others and share your freedom may you be richly blessed! Ann

    • “Not only does He turn our lives upside down but He shakes us out and fills us up with Him.” –I LOVE this statement! So true! I’m sorry to hear you’ve also struggled with mental illness (and the stigma attached to people with it) but how wonderful to find freedom from even our own physical shortcomings by leaning on Christ and trusting His words about us!

      • Amen! Love your teachings…the people that are trying to get sober/free need to hear this if they want to truly stay that way. God is good and able to keep us from falling but should we He is there to “love” us back up 🙂 Blessings! Ann
