The transformation that the 12 steps brought to my life 34 years ago was to teach me how to live without the numbing effects of alcohol and drugs. The biggest impact from that transformation was that in working the 12 steps I came back to the Church and back into a relationship with God through Christ. Of course, this material is not new to me, so the biggest impact from my time going through this material has been to bring me out of isolation. I had not been in fellowship with others who share my past experiences with addiction and healing from it for many years. Getting back into that fellowship has been very good for me. I look forward to continuing that fellowship and any opportunities God brings to me to share the message of hope and healing that He has brought to my life.

With a few years of sobriety and my spiritual life growing, I was still missing something. Wasn’t sure exactly what it was. I then learned about Rooted and joined that bible study. As I proceeded through this study -I felt like the Grinch – My heart grew so much in size that I was bursting to do more. This desire, this flame in my heart helped me pursue avenues that I normally wouldn’t do. I found Pastor Teresa and she mentioned this Spiritual Journey to Healing ministry that the church wanted to begin. God was telling me this is where I belong. I accepted the challenge and went through the 12 steps curriculum and was blown away. I wanted more and boy did I get more, more than I bargained for, but the healing was happening. Thank you, Jesus, for always being faithful.

Having done the 12 Steps Spiritual Journey to Healing in the Summer of 2018, I have to say the one thing that impacted me the most was that, I WAS NOT ALONE. For years I hid my true feelings of how I felt, I was always told "GET OVER IT". I realized that my feelings had validation, that what I was feeling was normal, and that God wanted me to be honest with Him. It was always easy for me to help others, I would listen to their story and tell them God wants your pain, and as I prayed for others I would hear in my own heart… what about me… I wasn't important and I kept hearing 'Get over it' which were haunting words of pain. The problem was I WANTED TO GET OVER IT, BUT SOMETHINGS STILL STUNG. Now, I have to say that I have found my place of safety and that God's grace and love cover me and as long as I can express myself in truth and grace. There is someone on the other end who is willing to hear me and validate me and encourage me till the end. Eastpoint Church is that place. I know I am accepted, loved, cherished, and I am nurtured there. 12 Steps Spiritual Journey to Healing opened my door of trust a bit more and I am finding freedom.SO GRATEFUL I AM ON THIS JOURNEY!

Even as a Pastor, I battle fears and insecurities. Going through A Spiritual Journey to Heal gave me an opportunity to pinpoint some of those insecurities and lies that were holding me back. It also allowed me to replace those lies with the truth of God’s Word instead. A Spiritual Journey allowed me to identify and name emotional wounds that I didn’t know I had and gave me the tools I needed to heal. This ministry allows, not only emotional healing, but a deeper relationship and faith in Jesus as we remove the things that hold us back from faith and obedience and receive His grace and love.
