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.."

We are doing everything possible to keep our men safe. We will notify you when we start the support group meeting up again. Thank you for understanding.
