Jesus redeemed Cindy's life from the pit (the one someone else threw her into and that she then decided to stay in). Hallelujah! He gives abundant life and makes all things new, bringing beauty and life from even our worst. Sharing His life with others in a recovery group (co-dependents) makes Cindy more honest, more compassionate and humble. The Scripture becomes His food for our souls, and we are tied together in the unity of His Holy Spirit. We walk beside each other on this climb!
