God Restoring Men's Lives
One saturday afternoon I was in a pub when the Lord prompted me
to talk to a young man sitting nearby. He was smoking,
had already had quite a few drinks and was gambling.
We talked about the one sport I really enjoy - water skiing
he said something that I felt to mention that
I am a survivor of sexual abuse in my childhood.
then he mentioned that his brother had died a few years earlier.
no one had comforted him.
when he started smoking and drinking (to console himself)
he felt further isolation at church.
I sought to comfort him
and we talked about real Christianity,
like Jesus at the Wedding when He turned water into wine
I saw something that day about what counts
what it should mean to follow Christ.
My friend inpired me to write this page.
I pray for my friend in his grief and sorrow
It is my prayer that we will be comforted and encouraged through
God restoring Men's lives is a ministry for Christian Men trusting Jesus Christ to restore our lives
as we undertake the journey to recover from:
child sexual abuse
grief ( such as the loss of a father or brother )
the process has many steps and is gradual. God is gentle.
deal with issues in God's strength as they arise.
- restoration of our soul
- healing of our wounded hearts
- being comforted
- setting captives free
- His comforting of our souls
- as we continue to read meditate and respond to His word....
Whilst it is right that we should do as Jesus did and forgive
( on the cross, after suffering great and prolonged cruelty
Jesus said "Father, forgive them. )
it is true that forgiveness washes away the puss of resentment
we can do without bitterness or resentment
forgiveness is not our only response.
there is diversity in recovery
hence I also wrote seven steps to revovery
feel free to email feedback toote seven steps to recovery
During csa we were traumatised. Trauma release counselling is fairly new,
I have found it very helpful.
Having recognised the issue of trauma
I wrote detraumatisation.com
