I would like to take a little time to give some feedback on my experience with Rhema Recovery. My husband and I recently went through a difficult time as a result of addiction on his part. We have spent the last year working to recover from this with the help of Paul Linley. I truly believe that God brought him and Rhema into our lives at the point of our greatest despair.
I am certain that the reason for his counselling being so successful is that God is the centre and Paul has always made Him the focus from Day 1. It was important to me that my husband receive the help he needed but that we, as a couple also receive counselling. With Paul and his wife, Jane's help we were able to achieve this.
I have re-ignited my relationship with God and learned how to truly trust Him for everything. Through counselling I have been able to confront and deal with my own personal shortcomings so that I can become the woman that God always intended me to be.
My husband and I have truly placed God at the centre of everything and we have a commitment to our marriage and a love for each other that I would never have thought possible. We cannot thank Paul, Jane and Rhema enough.
"I have learnt so much about why I previously thought, reacted and felt as I did. 'The Boundaries Course' I attended at Rhema, it has given me insight into ME, and a new more honest way to deal with my relationships. I learnt I matter too!
That God cares for me also that is something that I had misunderstood teaching on; have been a Christian for 31yrs.
'The Boundaries Course' opened my eyes even more to the fact, I needed to put boundaries in place with certain people and also that I will always have to do this for the rest of my life.
I have already started to implement boundaries and if feels freeing and empowering for me to be able to say NO.
We started the 12 steps for Jesus programme over a year ago. Since then some have been converted, helped the church welcome young men on their journey out of addiction and has been the basis for a new church plant.
