WHY CAN'T I OVERCOME MY ANGER? WHY DO I FEEL LIKE I HAVE NO CONTROL? WHY DO I WANT TO RUN AND HIDE? WHY AM I LONELY IN A CROWD? WHY DO I FEEL GUILTY ALL THE TIME? WHY CAN'T I CHANGE?
As Christians, we can struggle again and again with the same thing, not realizing that our struggle is rooted in what we believe about ourselves, God or others. Our deeply held beliefs may actually be lies that we accepted as truth at some point in our past. These lies can become strongholds in our lives and lead to discouragement, disconnection, disengagement, codependency, bad habits and addictions.
If you are unaware that your struggle is rooted in a lie that you believe, you are left to manage the effects of the lie and deal with the consequences each time it resurfaces. The struggle continues because you are only treating the symptom, not the root cause. Further, if a lie distorts your view of God, you will be less likely to turn to him for help.
Spiritual Discover is a Bible study to help you to identify what you believe and discover the truth that will demolish strongholds in your life. You will learn 7 Principles for Spiritual Growth that will help you break your unhealthy patterns. Spiritual Discovery is intended for use as a group study guide, and includes discussion questions and homework to guide you on your journey of discovery. A facilitator's guide is available at www.SpiritualDiscoveryBook.com
