Past problems can run rings around you.
Have you ever seen a cross section of the rings of a giant sequoia tree? Each ring of the tree reveals its developmental history. For example, one ring might represent a year of terrible drought while another ring shows signs of being struck by lightning. Some rings will probably show normal years of growth, but you may discover that a forest fire almost destroyed the tree.
That's the way our lives are. Just below the protective bark--the concealing, protective mask--are the recorded rings of our lives. In the rings of our thoughts and emotions, memories are recorded that deeply affect our concepts, our rings of our thoughts and emotions, memories are recorded that deeply affect our concepts, our feelings, our relationships. They affect the way we look at life and God, at others and ourselves.
Healing for Damaged Emotions Workbook provides you with the tools to examine the rings of your life and find healing for the painful scars that cripple your emotions. In this Workbook you'll find:
- Entire text of Healing for Damaged Emotions
- Scripture meditation and memorization
- Prayer exercises
