Welcome To Training Grounds
Training Grounds is where you will find everything you need to keep you moving through your recovery process such as daily devotions, biblical verses, red flags and warning signs, and encouraging words to lift you up and keep you moving.
The journey to recovery can be a difficult walk at times as our emotions can be affected. We can face obstacles such as discouragement, frustration, negative comments from others, etc. But we must remember to keep our focus on Christ and our eyes straight ahead to where we want to be…free.
The first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem. Not only admit it to yourself but to God. God requires honesty from us and to admit when we’ve done wrong and repent from it:
Only acknowledge your guilt—
you have rebelled against the Lord your God, you have scattered your favors to foreign gods under every spreading tree, and have not obeyed me'” declares the Lord.
In our day, our idolatries can be alcohol, drugs, our spouses and children, work, our homes, our cars, money, computers, cellphones, tv’s etc. Whatever you give all your time and attention too is your foreign god. These things can only provide us with temporary pleasures and band-aids to cover our wounds, but Christ can offer permanent healing and freedom if given the chance.
Training can be tough at times and exhausting but each time we turn to Christ during these times, He will provide the strength we need to get through it and to keep moving:
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
Make the choice today to spiritually train and become stronger in Christ and allow Him to break your chains!
