There Are No Loners On The Transformation Pathway


Garden of the Gods Trees

It's a pathway many have attempted to walk alone. Some make it farther down the path than others. Unfortunately, the vast majority never make it to freedom. They get lost, trip and fall, and get hurt along the way. Recovery is a jagged journey for sure.

 

"And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart" (Ecclesiastes 4:12).

 

Many men have tried to traverse the jagged journey of recovery from unwanted sexual behaviors, only to discover white-knuckling it doesn't work. We are not made or meant to do life alone and most certainly not meant to walk the pathway to healing and transformation alone. It's exhausting, frustrating, and easy to get or feel lost along the way.

 

God knew what and why he said, "it's not good for man to be alone." He was speaking of Adam, but not just him. That's why he made Eve as a "suitable helper." Make no mistake, He was not saying Eve was to be a servant of Adam, but recognized just as Father, Son and Spirit are a 'strand of three' so mankind, made in His image, is designed to live in and from community.

 

Take a look at the picture of the tree again. (I took that photo at Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado.) It's seems to be growing out of rock, and it is. Notice how twisted the two trunk legs are. There are far more than three strands of root or tree trunk. It's not only standing strong in the midst of the rock-filled landscape, but It's growing and thriving in spite of its harsh environment. Even creation speaks of God's design for us, if we are willing to hear (or see in this case) Him speaking to us.

 

The journey of recovery from unwanted sexual behaviors is difficult at best and seemingly impossible at times. Those who walk the jagged journey of The Transformation Pathway and persevere do so because they aren't walking alone.

 

Get wrapped up in a strand (band) of brothers of three or more and embrace The Transformation Pathway (*paid link) together. As we say around Be Broken, "We are better together". We say it because it's true.

 

"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity"(Proverbs 17:17).
"Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another" (Proverbs 27:17).

 

A tough path in front of us takes tough truth to walk. Let's walk it together. After all, we are better together.
