009: Hitting Rock Bottom Hurts Pt.1

How do you know when you’ve really reached rock bottom? A place of brokenness where you can finally see the damage that your addiction is doing to your life? This has been one of the most intriguing questions for me as I’ve worked with men in recovery from sexual addiction. In this episode, I share my thoughts on what rock bottom looks like and how we can continually live in a place of complete transparency before men and before God.

Lay Down The Shovel

You know when you’ve really hit rock bottom when you stop digging. Lay down the shovel. There’s no gold down there.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with many men since I’ve been walking in recovery and I wish that each of the men I talked to had reached this place, but the reality is that many men kept digging. They hadn’t reached “rock bottom”. They hadn’t reached a place of brokenness where they were physically & emotionally moved to tears (and yes, I do believe tears are a sign of repentance). But it’s only until we lay down our shovels and realize that sexual sin will never satisfy that we’ve really reached the bottom. No amount of porn or fantasy will lead us to the Truth – the only One who can satisfy our souls.
