Hurts, Habits, and Hang-ups
The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to have fellowship with others and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principles. We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our life’s problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power. Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program based on the 8 Principles in the Beatitudes to help us with our hurts, habits, and hang-ups. A hurt, habit, or hang-up is something that hinders our walk with God. The feeling of being HURT is an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior or to a disturbing situation. A HABIT is an addiction to someone or something. HANG-UPS are negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversity (anger, depression, fear, unforgiveness, etc.). Healing is available through applying the principles of a Bible-based recovery process to our lives.
