Share Your Struggle

Share Your Struggle

Jas 5:16     “Confess your faults one to another.”

It’s usually only when addicts “hit bottom” that they’re willing to embrace a twelve-step program of recovery, and submit to the guidance of a “sponsor” who will help them by holding them accountable. Where did the twelve-step principles originate? From Scripture! The Bible says, “Confess your faults to one another, and pray for one another, that ye may be healed.” Have all the years you’ve spent hiding your problem only made it worse? If so, an important step toward your deliverance is having someone in your life who understands, wants to see you set free, will stand by you, identifies with your struggle, and knows how to keep your confidence. And it needs to be someone you trust and respect; otherwise you won’t take them seriously. There must be an agreement between you that you’ll work together until lasting change takes place. That means finding someone who won’t be shocked by your problem and who won’t “shame” you, no matter what. It’s the broken who become masters at mending, so find someone who has won the battle you are fighting. And make sure they share your faith and values. Why do you need to share your struggle with someone? Because we are only as sick as the secrets we keep! Jesus said, “If two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them” (Mt 18:19-20 NIV). By opening up to another person and asking for help, you’ve taken a major step toward a better life.

You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
More people must check this out and understand this side of your story.
It's surprising you are not more popular given that you
surely have the gift.
