by Michael R. Dixon View author's profile page

Overview


This is a forty lesson Christ centered addiction recovery workbook based upon the Truth of the Bible. This workbook can be completed individually or as part of a support group, such as L.I.F.E. While addiction certainly has a physical and a mental component, there is also the most important spiritual aspect to an addiction.

L.I.F.E. stands for Living In Freedom Everyday. L.I.F.E. Ministries is a 501c3 nonprofit that ministers to those struggling under addiction.

Description


The author draws from personal experience of how he has found healing and deliverance from drug and alcohol addiction through a personal relationship with God. While reflecting upon his own recovery, the author draws from the scriptures teaching us biblically what God says about our addictions and how we can overcome them in the power of God. God tells us that an addiction, in whatever form it may take, is idolatry. We become controlled by someone or something other than God. We were never created to live our lives for anyone other than God. When we look to God in faith, dealing with our false gods and casting those idols down, we can experience a power we have never known before. A power to save, heal, and deliver. If you are ready to stop listening to the voices around you and to begin renewing your mind with what God says is true, this workbook can be a tool leading to your deliverance and healing. Throughout the pages of this book are the life transforming testimonies of others, just like you, who have taken this journey and are forever changed.
