Denial Lesson  #1

Large group starts at 7 pm (age  requirement 15 years and older)
Small groups start at 8 pm (age requirements 18 years and older)
 
 
 
Principle 1: Realize I’m not God.  I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.
 
“Blessed are those who know they are spiritually poor”.
(Matthew 5:3)
 
 
Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.
 
“I know that nothing good lives in me, that is in my sinful nature.  
For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.” (Romans 7:18)
 
 
 Before we can take the first step of our recovery, we must first face and admit our denial.
 

Disables our feelings
Energy lost
Negates growth
Isolates us from God
Alienates us from our relationships
Lengthens the pain
 
Focus Question:
 
In what areas of your life are you now beginning to face the truth and break the effects of DENIAL?
