In Christ-centered recovery, our testimonies are unique to each of us. We do however share a common bond resulting from having a past filled with hurt, addiction, loss, and finally restoration. Because we all share in this experience of recovery, we now have a connection of love, grace, and tolerance. Each of our hearts speaks the language of hope and renewal that is easily understood by others in Christ-centered recovery.
Christ speaks to our hearts because the heart has a language all its own. When we allow ourselves to love and to be loved, we start to understand the language of our hearts. To hear Christ speak to our hearts, we must have hearts that are willing to be open to Him. Our hearts speak, and Christ listens.
Our hearts also speak to each other. We connect on a heart level when we listen to others share their struggles and pain. None of us need to speak a word for each of our hearts to connect to one another. When our hearts connect to Christ and others, we undergo a level of healing that is beyond anything we have ever felt before. We are connected through our common experiences, and now our hearts speak to one another in a language without words.
