It’s Testimony Night!!
 
We invite you to come hear someone share about her recovery from 
sexual, physical, mental, and verbal abuse, 
as well as being consumed with guilt, shame, insecurity, and fear.
Come hear how the Lord has richly blessed her and given her peace.
 
“Be glad and rejoice with all your heart!  
The LORD has taken away your punishment, 
he has turned back your enemy.  
The LORD, the King of Israel, is with you; 
never again will you fear any harm.
  On that day they will say,
 “Do not fear; do not let your hands hang limp.  
The LORD, your God is with you, he is mighty to save.  
He will take great delight in you, 
he will quiet you with his love, 
he will rejoice over you with singing.”
 
Principle 8.  Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, 
both by my example and by my words.
 
“Blessed are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.” (Matthew 5:10)
 
 
Step 12.   Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps,
we try to carry this message to others and
to practice these principles in all our affairs.
 
“Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently.
But watch yourself or you also may be tempted.” (Galatians 6:1)

Principle 4. Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and someone I trust.”Blessed are the pure in heaart.” (Matthew 5:8)

Step 4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

In this principle, you need to list (inventory) all the significant events – good and bad – in your life.  
You need to be as honest as you can be to allow God to show you your part and how that affected you and others.  
The acrostic for MORAL shows you how to begin.


 

 

Make time

 

 

O pen

Analyze 

 

 

List

 

 

Focus Question for Small Groups:

What are your fears about starting your inventory? 

What were the benefits of completing your personal inventory?

 

 

Principle 4 Prayer:

 

 

Dear God, You know my past, all the good and the bad things that I’ve done.  In this step, I ask that You give me the strength and the courage to list those things so that I can “come clean” and face them and the the truth.  Please help me reach out to others You have placed along my “road to recovery.”  Thank you for providing them to help me keep balanced as I do my inventory. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
