Fabulous. Period.

Don't worry; pray instead...

The thing that kept me company...

Self-Sabotage: Return To the Vomit?

“I’m my own worst enemy.”

Ever utter those words?

Chances are, at different points in our lives, we will do our own unique versions of self-destruction. We self-sabotage. It’s not necessarily because we want to ruin our lives.

Perhaps, rather, it’s because we want to control them.

Wonderful, here we go!

And, for those of us in recovery: alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, shopping, anything under the sun, really, it seems to be all in a day’s work. What’s the famous slogan? “Relapse is a part of the recovery process.”

Oh, good, so let’s do some recovering then.

Scripture illustrates the relapse/self-sabotage principle long before any 12 Step Programs or support groups were formed.

“As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.”

Proverbs 26:11


My husband and I don’t have dogs; we have cats. And so, I understand this Proverb in real life feline terms. With our cats, there are hairballs, usually coughed up at two in the morning. I should know because that’s usually the time I’m awakened to that one of a kind retching sound. Either that, or I step in it when I get up hours later. Both are fun options, let me tell you.

Nevertheless, on more occasions than I care to experience, our cats, if left to their own devices, will eventually attempt to consume their just regurgitated hairballs.


It sounds gross, barbaric and pointless to us, doesn’t it? After all, this hairball, supposedly, was giving the cats enough trouble for them to vomit it up in the first place, right? Why go back to square one?

Is anyone recognizing themselves yet? I know I am.

To start, there’s an independent streak, usually very contrary to most 12 Step Principles like…

“We admitted we were powerless over a substance - that our lives had become unmanageable.”

 “We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

“We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.”

“We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.”

“We’re entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.”

“We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.”

Pretty straightforward and thorough, isn’t it?

But is it fun and gratifying to our will and cravings?

Eh, not so much. We tend to insist on a declaration of our own little independence, don’t we?

That often involves such great decision makers like pride, isolation and excess.

So, let’s see what might happen with these approaches.

First, there’s pride.

“Pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

Proverbs 16:18

We’re not the first to dawn upon that cute notion. In fact, it goes back a little ways, beyond a decade or even a century. Try a real-l-l-l-y long time ago, with one particular little fella.

“And he said unto them, ‘I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.’”

Luke 10:18

“How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!”

Isaiah 14:12

Oh, good, this will go great.

 Indeed, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. But it wasn’t without cause. You see, Satan thought he could do things all by himself. He could be just like God. No problem, right?

But there was a problem, a big old independent pride of a problem. And Satan, therefore, got puffed up, greedy and grabby.

"But you said in your heart, 'I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.'

Isaiah 14:13-14


And then there followed God’s “nevertheless” response to that attitude…

"Nevertheless you will be thrust down to Sheol, To the recesses of the pit.”

Isaiah 14:15

Yeah, that’s not good…

"Those who see you will gaze at you, They will ponder over you, saying, 'Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms?’

Isaiah 14:16

So much for big, bad and independent, huh?

It’s not about calling ourselves Satan. It is, however, about recognizing the slippery slope of willfulness…stubbornness…pride…independent arrogance… and a great big fall.

We’re all capable of that. How many “rock bottoms,” really, have you and I already lived through? Do we really want to take another swan dive?

But, I guess, a-diving we often go, employing good ‘ole isolation to the stubborn mess.

Whether we want to indulge our cravings or are ashamed of that indulgence (or both), many of us decide we need to drop off the planet and self-medicate/party. We stop talking to our loved ones. We can stop going to meetings, calling our sponsors and going to church, school and work.

Scripture, as usual, provides its perspective on this tactic:

“A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire;
He rages against all wise judgment.”

Proverbs 18:1

What’s the opposite of wise? Foolish.

But, c’mon, we reason such things as…

“This is fun.”

“It’s only one time.”

“I have this under control.”

 “I’ll get back on the horse Monday morning.”

“Besides, no one understands my pain or what I’m going through.”

Said any of these gems? I have. Yet, they never work; they never fix anything. And, eventually, we’re wallowing in situations that went way further than we ever expected they would. That’s what sin does.


But it’s not about condemnation, because, after all…

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

Romans 8:1

Yet there’s also a reality check side to the condemnation issue. And again, it deals with our flawed selves. Check out this little ditty:

“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

John 3:19

It’s not flattering. I know, at different times, I’ve been in a critical moment of decision: should I indulge in my own way here and now or choose the healthier approach of going to a support group meeting, calling someone, going to church or, heck, even praying? Unfortunately, I’ve occasionally chosen the first option, even when I “knew better,” even when I glimpsed the consequences of that less than healthy choice.

Why did I do this? Well, Paul says it much better than I EVER could:

“For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice: but what I hate, that I do.”

Romans 7:15

Thanks, Paul.

And that’s where the healing of supportive people comes in. After all, if God stated being alone wasn’t good for us, why would that change?

“And the LORD God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.’”

Genesis 2:18

Now, I know this scripture is trotted out when it comes to finding a spouse and that’s a part of it.

But it also speaks to the connection- the communion- with supportive loving people in our lives. They can be in recovery groups and churches; they can be sponsors. But the common denominator is that they have to be individuals outside of our “me, myself and I” tendencies.

God didn’t create hermits. We do that to ourselves. And there’s no blessing to that decision, only more delusion, deception and destruction. We cannot go it alone.

And let’s not forget, we still have the pursuit of our cravings. We are often captivated by excess. We want to be with our chosen binges and diseases, don’t we? Again, we’re cautioned not to do that…

“Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat.”

Proverbs 23:20

"Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.

Luke 21:34

But those cautions aren’t so much fun. They aren’t attractive, compelling, glimmering with our God substitute of an answer to pain, stress and life. Indulgence is more of a party than self-control.

And, because God is a good God, yes, He has given us the capacity for that attribute.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

Galatians 5:22-23

We just need to put it into practice.

“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”

Galatians 5:16

 And c’mon, we view the word “practice” as work, not fun, right?

Nevertheless, it is possible. We just need to remember, it’s not about our strength or brilliant ideas. We know what some of those things can do. Self-control is tied to God.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

John 15:5

Whether it is stumbling blocks of pride, isolation or excess, God still wants to be in our lives and recovery programs; He wants to instruct and guide us.

 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go: I will guide you with My eye.”

Psalm 32:8

“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it, whenever you turn to the right hand, and whenever turn to the left.’”

Isaiah 30:21

Often, God is not even saying something super spiritual to us. It could be “Go to a meeting,” “Call your sponsor,” “Don’t shop on the internet,” or “Put that drink down.”

In that moment, it often comes down to a question: do we trust God?

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

Proverbs 3:5-6

That question is not easy to answer. Neither is recovery. Let’s get real- often, it feels like a war.

“But I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, on the one hand I myself with my mind am serving the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.”

Romans 7:23-25

But we’re not alone in that war. God is there. And He’s making a way…

“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.”

1 Corinthians 10:12-13

One day at a time, in the moment…

And, even it’s a “relapse kind of moment,” God is still there, able to handle it:

“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?”

Jeremiah 32:27

He doesn’t want to punish us or beat us up.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Jeremiah 29:11

We need to stop doing it, then, to ourselves. God wants us to see there’s another way from the options we’re unsuccessfully pursuing. He’s faithful to meet us right where we are.

And He’s equipped us with practical recovery tools. Support groups, sponsors, recovery meetings and healthy coping strategies are just a few of those options. They can be secular in nature sometimes, but once God is at the center, they become Godly.

You and I don’t have to return to the vomit. God has better for us.

Wherever we are on the relapse/recovery grid, we need to remember God desires to love us, meet us and help us. Let’s accept the grace, start again if we need to and leave the vomit where it belongs: in the past.

A Bad Fall...

When I was about twelve, I had a bad fall incident. It was a Minnesota winter- one of THOSE winters! I was running late for the school bus, so late that I built up enough speed to not only fall on the ice, but SLIDE partly under the bus as well! Beautiful! And oh, so safe and dignifying! Because there’s nothing preteen girls love more than an audience witnessing your moment of impact with nature’s ice rink!

Anyhoo, my point is this: embarrassing falls happen. They can be the literal fall of, for instance, missing a step or curb or slipping on a patch of ice. Or they can be spiritual or emotional falls, in which something horrible happened that devastated you, like a severed relationship, a communication mishap, or feeling isolated and estranged because of circumstances that were out of your control.

And then, there’s the fall of “relapse.” Nothing can make a person feel more like a worthless failure than relapse. You feel defeated, hopeless, weak, a failure. You somehow reason that you’re the one lone person in the world who failed and can’t sustain recovery. “Everyone else” has got it down; if you were a “better person,” you scream to yourself, you could get it too.

But we all fall:

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

Romans 3:23

The fact is, yes, it was sooooooooooooooooooooooooo embarrassing when I fell at 12…and 13… and 19… and 23… and 27…and, well, you get the picture… I’ve slid under a lot of life buses in my time, had sooooooo many failures, with plenty of onlookers watching.

But life went on; the moment- hellish, embarrassing , defeating- PASSED!

Again, 2 Corinthians 4:18:

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal.”

I fell at twelve, was embarrassed, struggled to get up, got up, got on the bus, etc.

And with each fall, each year, whether I felt it was happening or not, I still got up because God was helping me.

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

Psalms 46:1

God’s helping you too. So, what’s your latest fall? Are you struggling to get up?

Still feel pathetic? Well, how ‘bout this?

“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again...”

Proverbs 24:16

God’s not mad at you; He’s helping you to get up from your fallen place.

Don’t stay where you fell; that is not your destiny! Your life, complete with an incredible future, is your destiny!

 “…Behold, I make all things new...”

Revelation 21:5

So, we may be at our usual rut state of mind kind of living. Some of us out there may be struggling through repetitious, frustrating days. Some of us may be trying to recover from a personal setback, a slip from sobriety, or a major life change which completely caught us off guard. What do we do when a slip or a fall has disrupted our lives, especially when some of us feel far from spring chickens? What’s the antidote to the fall? Answer: God’s new.

Think about it. No matter how old we get, there’s a large part of us which wants to feel new, shiny, like a possibility- filled being. Yet, so much of the time in life, it seems our lives and realities don’t reflect that shiny newness. Is new too simple, too unrealistic to hope for after you’ve been battered by life a bit? No. I don’t think so. However, I think there’s a trick to it a perspective. Perhaps we could stop seeing new as a one time, instant, perfect event and start seeing it as a constant process from a relevant God, Who subtly changes and yes, transforms things. Nothing in life just happens- or even happens overnight. Life takes time. Even concerning a seemingly instant event took some to get that way. And regardless of how things seem, God is still in control.

So, could God be up to something new?

God has plan for us, according to Jeremiah 29:11:

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Did you catch that? God knows the thoughts and plans for us; we don’t. So, why should we ever assume it’s “over” for us, in any way? You and I are both still here, right? God doesn’t write us off; why should we?

There is a new future, even when we don’t feel it, see it or know it for our lives. It’s not hopeless. It’s never hopeless.

God is doing a new thing for you.

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”

Isaiah 43:19

But don’t get caught up on the old things of your life.

Where is your focus: the past, the present or the future? They all play a role, but don’t negate the rest of your life, just because of something from the past. God is a God of restoration, healing and new beginnings…

 “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”

Psalms 107:20

“For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast...”

Jeremiah 30:17

“I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the canker worm and the caterpillar and the palmer worm…"

Joel 2:25

And that includes falls. New is still the promise, still extended to you.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

2 Corinthians 5:17

A bad fall never disqualifies you. Allow God to be in it. Remember:

“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again...”

Proverbs 24:16

Am I Pretty?

“Am I pretty?”

Recently, I watched the 1940 adaptation of “Our Town” by Thornton Wilder. It follows the lives of its Grover’s Corner citizens.

And that includes a young girl, Emily. There was a particular conversation between Emily and her mother which caught my attention; it’s one, to a certain degree, which is echoed between many mothers and daughters now. It’s about being pretty.

Emily asks her mother, “Am I pretty enough to get people interested in me?”

My ears perked right up, along with many mixed emotions about the question. Having experienced struggles with body and self-image, as well as eating disorders, the “pretty” question is far from pretty.

Years later, I’m still befuddled by the importance of it. Is it a real human desire for females or is it learned?

Scripture tells us appearance’s importance is a part of life here:

 “ …‘Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature… for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.’”

1 Samuel 16:7

So, God desires us to be “pretty on the inside?”

Somehow, however, that doesn’t quite jive by the time we reach adolescence. High school often teaches us numerous lessons on who is pretty… and who is not.

Indeed, as a little girl, my mother and I often had discussions or “rating systems” on which of my female peers were “cute,” “pretty” or “beautiful.” It wasn’t just about judging or picking apart facial features. It had to do with being worthwhile.

Because, “being pretty,” largely involves acceptance, being chosen. And isn’t that what we long for? We spend our lives chasing that chosen feeling/reality.

I’m not against beauty; I understand its importance. Who doesn’t enjoy looking at something or someone who is aesthetically pleasing?

But I cringe at the extreme importance placed upon “being pretty,” often to the exclusion or negation of other valuable attributes: kindness, personality, spirituality, talent and intellect, for instance. We’ve heard about the pretty girl who dumbed down and downplayed her own intellect/scholastic achievement, just to be approved of and accepted by a good looking boy or a pressuring peer group. She wanted people to be interested in her. And, instead of letting those non-physical qualities stand out, she believed the lie that all she had to offer was her looks. That’s where her worth resided.

As I watched “Our Town,” I encountered a lot of antiquated mindsets, especially concerning male and female roles. It’d be great to think about how far we’ve come since then.  It’d be great if we could see advancement and equality, enlightenment for all individuals where intrinsic worth wasn’t judged by outward appearance.

Sadly, we’re not there. As sweet and endearing as that mother/daughter “pretty” discussion was, it still rings uncomfortably true to this day as the emphasized factor for a girl’s worth. “Pretty” is still so important. There is an absence of the “smart,” “witty” or “kind” questions when it comes to a female’s value.

And that is a shame. We are spiritual beings. We are who our spirit is, not what our faces and bodies look like.

“Pretty,” by itself, is an adjective, not an end-all, be all of individual worth. You and I can be pretty, but that should not be where we end. There’s too much more to us. We need to tap into that. God created incredible beings. He wants us to discover ALL of who we are, not just stop at appearance.

As inherently valuable creations of the Most High God, you and I are enough, AS IS, to be interesting to others and to be worthwhile, regardless of another’s acceptance or rejection.  Valuable… and wonderful, AS IS!!!

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…”

Psalm 139:14

This is who we are! Fully own and enjoy that Truth today!!!

What Is the Root Cause of Your Worry?


Featured in June 24th’s Christians In Recovery, Sheryle Cruse references the pop culture series, “Mad Men,” addressing the worry issue as it concerns the process of recovery.



It doesn't make you good or bad...

Physical Effects of Bulimia...

Our Incredible Temples (The Challenge Of Taking Care Of Them)

Scripture tells us we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16).

With that said, therefore, taking care of our Temple, known as our physical bodies, seems to be one of the greatest challenges. I know it has been for me.

In my book, “Thin Enough: My Spiritual Journey Through the Living Death of an Eating Disorder,” I chronicle my struggles through all kinds of dysfunction, disordered eating and harmful mindsets. Eventually I descended into anorexia, bulimia and binge eating, often displaying extreme food restriction and over-exercise behaviors. I saw food and exercise through unhealthy, punishing and dangerous filters and extremes. I either ate nothing or everything; I either did no exercise whatsoever or I punished myself with six grueling hours of it every day. There was no moderation, no healthy approach, just torment, fear, guilt, desperation and hopelessness.

Years later, into my recovery, my challenge has been to live a healthy, not abusive or disordered lifestyle. Through my recovery work, I’m often approached by young people, confused and tormented by their disordered behaviors and mindsets. Many are Christians. So, what’s the answer to this Temple issue?

Concerning both food and exercise, the Bible does have something to say:

“Is not life more than food?”

Jesus, in Matthew 6:25

“For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.”

1 Timothy 4:8

However, that’s often easier read than lived, isn’t it?

Recently, I met a vibrant personal trainer, DJ White. We had the chance to briefly speak about her approach to health, food and fitness. Since she operates from a Christian perspective in her training, I, therefore, thought her advice on this challenging issue could be of tremendous benefit for those of us struggling in this area. And, unfortunately, even Christians are not immune from eating disorders, bad self-image, food and exercise issues. We could all use some advice in the area of health.

I asked DJ if she wouldn’t mind answering a few questions. She was most gracious with her responses.

SC: What made you decide to become a personal trainer?

DJW: I originally went to college to become a physical therapist.  A severe allergic reaction to physics landed me in a computer class that was easy.  Long story short, after 8 years of corporate America, I realized that being active was something I loved! I became certified and left corporate America to support the health and wellness of those who chose or had to stay in that environment.

SC: What made you decide to become a Christian?

DJW: I grew up with the foundation of belief in God and prayer.  We always went to church and being a member of a church going family made it easy for me to choose to become a Christian as a young adult.  I can’t imagine going through life any other way.

SC: What Christian faith principles do you incorporate with your clients concerning their fitness programs?

DJW: The name of my business is P & P Journey’s, LLC.  P & P stands for Personal and Professional Journey’s.  The logo has a diamond in the rough (soil) with three leaves representing mind, body, and spirit.  As spirit beings trying to master the human experience, I include nutrition, activity, and leisure in my training with my clients.  In connecting these areas the spirit gets the attention it needs to heal, grow, and contribute in the way God intended.

SC: What advice do you give to someone who wants a Godly effective fitness regimen?

DJW: I encourage my clients to pray and/or meditate, with study in the morning along with their exercise routine and proper nutrition to energize the body.  Before they begin their day “in the world”, they have done the following:  1) given thanks and gratitude, 2) created a space for greater wisdom, 3) engaged their physical body in a manner that encourages and connects physical and mental strength and discipline, 4) and they have given it the nutrients to fuel them for the day.  They have succeeded in taking care of themselves so they can now fulfill their role and purpose in the world.

SC: What advice do you have for those of us who have struggled with disordered eating and/or food or exercise addictions?

DJW: In scripture when you read about your Temple, you gain the awareness, knowledge, wisdom, and peace that this earthly vessel is on loan for you to fulfill your purpose.  Holding tight to these scriptures can and will see you through these challenges.

SC: What motivates you in your own health/fitness choices?

DJW: The absence of dis-ease motivates me.  My family history of different cancers over three generations was a cycle I declared would end.  My practice is my commitment.

SC: What advice would you give to someone concerning the temptation issue?

DJW: Every time you are tempted 1) acknowledge it, 2) make a CONSCIOUS CHOICE to overcome it  3) acknowledge the benefits of your choice, 4) once that choice is made take swift action,      5) Celebrate the choice, be responsible and accountable for it. This is definitely more challenging acting on the temptation, yet if you REALLY REWARD YOUR SUCCESS, you can do it!

SC: What advice would you give to someone concerning discouragement and motivation?

DJW: Find a person who has succeeded in what you want to succeed in.  They have been there and done that and they will bring you up so you succeed!

SC: How do you bring God into your own personal routine? 

DJW: Beyond my morning discipline that I shared in question 4, I talk to God all the time usually thanking him for the blessing of health and wellness.  I never have nor will I ever take it for granted.

SC: What would you tell someone who wishes to embark upon a healthier lifestyle?

DJW: Practice breathing from you diaphragm and listen to your body.  Body awareness must be a priority for success.  Your body will tell you what it needs if you listen to it.  Use warm and cold or what feels good and not so good (I don’t use the word bad).  Your body (spirit) will ALWAYS TELL YOU.  I tell my clients, I am the expert on how the body works.  They are the experts of their body.

SC: What would you tell someone who has had setbacks in their pursuit of a healthier lifestyle?

DJW: Every day is a new day.  You are ALIVE!  Celebrate that and begin!  It’s not beginning again.  Just begin.  Have the best day today, then repeat that when you awaken.  It will become a habit sooner than you realize!

SC: What would you tell someone who believes it’s “too late?”

DJW: It’s never too late.  I became a personal trainer at 33 and did my first body building show at 35 years old!  My role model is 73 and she still competes and practices a healthy lifestyle.  Just BEGIN!

Many of us who struggle and are in recovery have sought support, resources and connection for all kinds of addictions and compulsions, including drugs and alcohol. However, the eating disorder/body image issue, I believe, should also get just as much attention. Let’s face it: we cannot escape food and our bodies; we are daily confronted by these realities for our very survival.

God, however, has not desired for us to merely survive; He wants us to thrive as well.

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

3 John 1:2

“…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

John 10:10

So, let’s get some prospering souls- and bodies! God has created us to experience and enjoy the miracle known as our lives, through our incredible Temples.

 “… I am fearfully and wonderfully made…”

Psalm 139:14

Let’s have respect and acceptance for them today!
