Focus on Recovery – Matt Brown

Blaise Pascal, the French mathematician and Christian philosopher, once wrote, “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every person, and it can never be filled by any created thing. It can only be filled by God, made known through Jesus Christ.”

Matt Brown knows all about that heart vacuum! He’s always been a hard-charging guy – athletics, academics, business, addiction! Still a young man, he has experienced lots and accomplished much – yet none of it ever really satisfied his soul.

But, today, Matt also knows about God filling his heart vacuum. And when that happened to him here at HUM, it was contentment – believing God has already provided everything necessary for his present well-being – that filled his heart.

Not that everything has gone smooth, but God shows up in his life every day and Matt is okay with what He is doing. It’s changed him and now he wants to help facilitate the same type of change for countless others, too. Man, this Jesus stuff really does work!
