Fresh Start Ministries of Central Florida


Thank you so much Pastor Joe!!!!
I recommend any man, who’s ready to surrender, ready to admit that what they’re doing is only caging or killing them, and ready to accept the Lord’s direction through men who have been walking it out and have come back from the same lows, to commit yourself to Fresh Start and watch the Lord do wonders in your life, as long as you’re putting in the work. Fresh Start saved my life, and their “Guid to Sober Life for Dummies” is flawless, as long as you apply their teachings.
Man..stuff lonely..please find me again...
Even If They say sometimes you win some Sometimes you lose some And right now Right now I'm losing bad I've stood on this stage Night after night Reminding the broken It'll be alright But right now Oh right now I just can't It's easy to sing When there's nothing to bring me down But what will I say When I'm held to the flame Like I am right now I know You're able And I know You can Save through the fire With Your mighty hand But even if You don't My hope is You alone They say it only takes a little faith To move a mountain Good thing A little faith is all I have right now But God when You choose To leave mountains unmovable Give me the strength To be able to sing It is well with my soul I know the sorrow I know the hurt Would all go away If You'd just say the word But even if You don't My hope is You alone You've been faithful You've been good All of my days Jesus, I will cling to You Come what may ‘Cause I know You're able I know You can It is well with my soul
Father..find me lost..this isnt what i want...i miss you...please...
Breaking the chains of addictions. We want to invite everyone out tonight at 7:15PM for Fresh Start Ministries weekly Family Support Group; tonight's teaching is on, "Sabotaging Our Recovery". What it is, where it comes from, how it affects our lives and what the solution is. Let's continue to break the cycle of addictions and codependency by staying connected and working our program. Hope to see you all tonight. Blessings
The devil gets in my head.. he tries to get in my heart and he tries to separate me from the closeness and peace and love I seek in my soul with God ...he tries to poke and prod and influence my children, my wife, my friends, people on the roads, and people in stores ...and most that I interact with daily....he does all this to influence me to break my faith, to break my hope and the things I seek in my life. sometimes I'm soft and weak and he sneaks in a little ..he makes me question everything in my life .my faith, my friendships, my compassion , my being a husband and a father... everything ...he is around every corner, in every room, on the roads and at the mall.. tries to be in every decision I make ...every thought I have... I never knew spiritual warfare was this hard.. I fight that battle with every breath I take.. I've been through and seen some pretty crazy stuff in my life ..I would have never imagined that the spiritual battle would Encompass every single word I speak, breath I take ,and decision I make... constantly questioning everything I say or do... questioning what kind of a man I am.. what kind of a father.. a husband.. what kind of a human I am.. he beats me up ,he takes my things. he tries to take me as his.. but I'm not.. I am gods.. and I don't know about tomorrow cuz I'm not sure that it'll come , but I do know that at least for today he's not going to have me.... I may not always know who I am.. but God does... and I think on some level this is the road ..the journey.. the meaning of life... the everyday struggle, every hour ,every minute and every single second of every day, every single breath I take to grow closer to God ...I may never get to hear "good job my faithful servant" but at least maybe one day I'll get to hear" not bad bro ,not bad...welcome home son.."
Today I celebrate 11 years clean and sober from all substances by the grace of God. I believe I'll just start posting this every year on this page since FSM is where it all started. My only addiction these days is chocolate cake, cheesecake, and pizza. 😁😁 I still can't thank this place enough and for Pastor Joe and Kelly for all they had done for me in the past. Forget what is behind you everyone, and keep pressing on towards the goal.
Mark Swallow's Celebration of Life Service will be held Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 10 AM. Service will be held at Suntree United Methodist Church, 7400 N Wickham Rd, Melbourne, FL 32940.

I graduated fresh start 5 yrs ago next month and my life has never been the same. I came to fresh start a broken man. I had been a heroin addict since the age of 17 and believed I would die one until fresh start and their staff changed my life. I had been doing treatment programs and half way houses since the age of 20 and I can confidently say this is the best one I've ever been to. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relationship with God because he definitely has his hand on the staff and this building. You can feel his presence here in a powerful way to where you can't deny it. fresh start help me identify my emotional restraints and helped me work through them and overcome them. the inner healing class helps you break the evil soul ties that go along with addiction and gives you the tools and direction to break them for good so they no longer have a hold on your life. I could go on and on about what they mean to me and how awesome our Lord is and how he and that saved my life but it's something that you'll have to experience for yourself if you need to be rescued from addiction and co-dependency. I promise you that if you come here and really want to change and keep your mouth shut and ears open you will leave a new creation in Christ and you will never be the same again..have a good day and be blessed, I know I am
