Before Joy came to recovery…she was finding significance in what the world thought, which led her to coping with insecurity and disappointment through the use of alcohol.
During recovery, the Lord taught Joy….. That her value is in Him alone and that seeking the approval and acceptance of people will always leave her feeling empty and like she is “never enough.” She saw the patterns of fear and dishonesty that characterized her life and learned to replace the world’s lies with God’s truth.
Now, Joy's life is…. Free from fear and she no longer feels the need to either numb or perform. Joy believes the truth of what God says about her and that is enough.
