and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23
My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.
Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.
Daddy let me be secure in You only!

FINDING OUR TIMOTHY'S
Picked up The Recovery Bible and I came across the relationship of Timothy and Paul.
Timothy was never known as a strong leader. A timid and fearful man. One who did not like to confront people. Despite his weaknesses, God used Timothy.
Timothy was known to be faithful and persevere in his ministry despite his fears. A man of integrity. Faithful. A good friend.
Paul encouraged Timothy to speak only the truth, and to discipline himself. Take personal inventory and correct anything that was a detriment. Stay in good spiritual and emotional condition in order to receive the help from God.
"Recovery requires that we allow people into our life for both support and accountability. We need to ask God for "Timothys"-people who have integrity, who can be trusted, and who will stand by us through anything. When we find our Timothys, we will be better equipped to face the trials of recovery." (The Recovery Bible)
"Recovery always takes place in the context of relationships. So taking our personal inventory in the recovery process must lead us to make improvements in how we relate to others. We may not be in a position of leadership, but we are always an example to others. When we are taking inventory on a regular basis, everyone wins: We do because we grow; other do because they are encouraged. A successful recovery will lead to the healing of our broken relationships." (The Recovery Bible)
