Hope in Recovery Sunday

  • Gloria Dei Lutheran Church 700 Snelling Avenue South Saint Paul, MN, 55116 United States (map)

Sometimes our greatest failures become our most precious commodity.  "It's an Action Program" at times feels desperately empty, and we have to admit complete defeat.  While it is arguably true that ‘decisions determine destiny,' and the alchemical combination of sweat and faith typically yields favorable results, isn't it also true that unexpected tragedy sometimes befalls us?   Expectations of reaching our clearly defined goals and dreams are not the only means of achieving a bright destiny. 

Sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly, If we prevail against the pressures of life, we'll witness coal turning into diamonds.  We'll know The Promises.  We can transcend & transmute anything that has ever happened to us.  We can get well, regardless of anything or anyone.  When we embrace change and immerse ourselves in facing life on life's terms, we grow. along spiritual lines.  Rather than shrink from grief over what we have done or what has been done to us, we must face our inner & outer demons fearlessly.  As a result of so doing, we discover not only what & who we are, we also discover who our real friends are.  Real friends stay during the storms.
