Recovery for Your Life in 2013

I will restore the anient ruinsThe word recovery is thrown around everywhere these days.   There are television shows about it, there are groups that support it, there are people that tell us they are in it, whose job it is to search for treasure that needs to be recovered, computer program that recover data….  The list is endless.   But what is recovery really? defines recovery as:

  1. the regaining of or possibility of regaining something lost or taken away.
  2. restoration or return to health from sickness.
  3. restoration or return to any former and better state or condition.
  4. time required for recovering.

The Bible has a lot to say about it.  Throughout both the Old and New testament God speaks of recovery many, many times.  In 2013, ElysJoy will focus on a series of blog posts that discuss how to overcome and receive the recovery God intends for his people from whatever keeps them separated from the life God intended and restored to the person we were made to be.

Let’s face it, we all need recovery, restoration, return to a better state or condition from something.  We all need time to do that properly. God’s Word says, we are already promised it.  The Bible makes clear, that’s what God is calling his people to do.  In the face of everything,  we are just people but God is God and that is the key!  A relationship with Jesus restores and gives recovery to every one that asks Him.

ElysJoy is dedicated to restoration by using the gifts God gave us to fill the needs of the poor in spirit, in finances, in health….Our key Scripture remains the same a year after we first opened our doors in a small church house in Haysi, Va.    “He has send me to bind up the broken-hearted…..”Read more of Isaiah 61:1-7   

Come back over the next few months and see the new things Jesus is doing and what recovery is all about.
