The Way of the Warrior
Many men who enter the recovery journey are able to gain sobriety and maintain health for quite some time. And then, seemingly out of nowhere, they relapse. Why is this? It leaves men wondering, What do I need to create sustainable, lifelong recovery and healing?
The Compassionate Warrior will take you through the eight stages of “The Way of the Warrior.” As you progress through these stages, you will be transformed through God’s Word, His calling on your life, and His extraordinary purpose for your healing.
Stage I: Facing Evil
Many men embrace this journey not knowing what they need to do, unsure of where this journey will take them, and unaware of the challenges that lie ahead. In facing evil, they will develop qualities and characteristics needed to fulfill their God-given purpose.
Stage II: Resisting the Call
Although change is a constant in this life, the challenges that often accompany change can be overwhelming. Too much, at times. The fear of the unknown can be paralyzing. Does the warrior have what it takes to answer the call?
Stage III: Meet Your Mentor
It is often during times of great difficulty that mentors appear in life, as though through the sovereign direction of Father God. These mentors walk alongside the warrior, providing keys to life’s lessons and strategies to help navigate the obstacles they face.
Stage IV: A Radical Life-Altering Leap into Grace
When the journey becomes more than they can bear and they desperately want to quit, the warrior takes a leap of faith in continuing this journey. His commitment to keep going often reveals his deepest passion and purpose in his life.
Stage V: Threshold Guardians
As the warrior purservers, he is met by a Threshold Guardian: a barrier, blockage, or challenge to face and overcome. It will not be easy, for this opposition will be more difficult than anything we’ve faced before. It will strike at the core of our identity.
Stage VI: The Inner Cave
It’s in The Inner Cave that the warrior faces his greatest fear and enemy. Most often, the greatest fear and enemy comes from inside the warrior, living in the shadows of who he is and who he is becoming.
Stage VII: The Resurrection
In facing their greatest fear and enemy, the warrior reveals his true identity. His identity and strength comes through Christ and is reflected in His relationship with His heavenly Father. This is the life process of sanctification.
Stage VIII: The Road Back Home
This stage reflects a transformed life. The warrior is living with confidence, peace, and purpose. He is fully committed to the Father’s will, serving others like never before, and strengthening relationships with family and friends.
