Jordan arrived here for our 12-month residential Spiritual Recovery Program in the middle of March this year. His addiction had taken quite a toll on his life and he understood that it would take a while before he could reasonably expect to regroup and experience the kind of things he wants out of life.
As Jordan says, since he arrived he has been working an honest program – he has done what he is supposed to do, not sneaking around doing things destructive to his recovery. Now he is at the point where he is eligible to go back to work in the community, while still living here in the final phase of our Program. But Jordan found himself beginning to feel lots of stress in his desire to go back to work – where will he find a job and how will all this possibly work out. Last week, he told me, he made a conscious decision to commit this whole process to the Lord.
Probably not a big surprise to many of you – but quite a surprise to Jordan – God came through in a big way this week. Two different places have jobs for him and his father offered his old truck to Jordan for transportation! He is so grateful. Jordan shared with me that he figured he would have to “pay” for a while before he could expect anything like this from the Lord. God is good, all the time!
Now this doesn’t mean there won’t be further complications or even some delays in his journey, but Jordan recognized that this was clearly God moving in his life – and, no doubt, the best is yet to come. All the time, God is good!
