Recovery Acronyms

These acronyms help us all to remember important concepts in recovery. They can be a valuable tool to keep us sane, sober and on track.

F.I.N.E.
[I'm] Frustrated, Insecure, Neurotic, Emotional

F.E.A.R.
Face Everything And Recover

N.U.T.S.

Affliction Prepared For and Improved

"It was good for me to be afflicted--so that I might learn your decrees." Psalm 119:71

As it is the duty of God's children to prepare for affliction before it comes; so it is also their duty to improve affliction when it does come.

If we do not prepare for affliction--we shall be surprised by it;
and, if we do not improve it--we are likely to increase it.

He who would prepare for affliction, must beforehand:
(1.) resign all to God,
(2.) strengthen his graces,
(3.) store up divine promises,
(4.) and search out secret sins.

When We Have to Wait

Tarry in the city of Jerusalem, until you are endued with power from on high. Luke 24:49

He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father. Acts 1:4

These waiting days were necessary to enable the disciples to realize their need, their nothingness, their failure and their dependence upon the Master. They had to get emptied first, before they could get filled.

Letting Go of the Scale in Eating Disorder Recovery

What does the number on the scale say about you? When you really think about it, it's only a number and doesn't hold much meaning. It probably doesn't feel that way. Weighing yourself may be a normal part of your day. In the end, though, that number does not and will not define you. No matter if that number goes up or down, you will still be the same you.

We Begin at the Lowest Grade

"Learn from Me"--for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." Matthew 11:29

The God of All Comfort: Grief Share

2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Praise be to... the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.

When a neighbor lost her husband two years ago, many comforted her.

Those who had lost a loved one were able to comfort her with the comfort they had received from God.

Grief Share is a support group for those who have lost a loved one.

The facilitators and small group leaders have all experienced at least one significant loss.

They first went to Grief Share for the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort to comfort them.

Obtaining a Meal Plan

While in eating disorder recovery, it is often helpful to obtain a meal plan. Some with eating disorders suffer serious health consequences that sometimes even become life threatening. Meal plans can help to restore their health, and in some cases, even play a part in saving their lives. Even so, some eating disorder sufferers resist obtaining them. If you feel hesitant yourself, please know that obtaining a meal plan can help you get back in control. Also, please know that a meal plan can be made to fit you as an individual.
