5. CHRISTIAN RECOVERY
Many of us live with private images of God that do not match our stated beliefs about God. We may intellectually believe in a God of love and grace, but find ourselves privately struggling with fears about God. These fears may leave us trying hard to earn God’s approval, trying hard to avoid God’s anger, or trying hard to “get it right”.
This course makes use of this rich biblical imagery. Each session will end with a reading of a text from Scripture that offers a glimpse of God’s goodness and power and grace. For some who have had Scriptures used against them, this might feel distressing at first. But what I have discovered is that biblical images have the ability to move past our defenses and to speak the truth of God’s love and grace and goodness into our hearts’ deepest longings. I offer this material with prayers that what I have to share in this course will bring new hope and healing to your life. “The God of Hope will fill you with peace and joy as you come to trust God” more and more (Romans 15:13).
