Step 2 to get free: Discovery

Darkness- White_preview.jpeg

Aren't you tired of feeling dead inside and stuck?  Why is it that you need to be perfect at everything?  Why can't you stop talking about yourself in a conversation?  Why do you sabotage every meaningful relationship you've had?  How come you can't stop yelling at your kids?  

Discovering truth about God and truth about you is the way to freedom.  

You can study and learn the Bible for your whole life, but if you never learn about yourself you won't get free.  Let that sink in for a second.  Maybe you have a hard time swallowing it.  Why isn't knowing truth about God enough?

Because we aren't all knowing, we may not even realize how we are hurting God or others. When we take the time to ask God like the psalmist "Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts," then we can discover truths about ourselves that Jesus wants to redeem.  God wants to reveal to us why we do what we don't want to do.

Warning:  looking deep within ourselves is scary.  It's so scary that most of us will do what fear causes us to do.  We will fight it, freeze in the midst of it, or take flight as far away from it as we can. Be courageous....Jesus is with you no matter how deep and scary your discovery is!  

So, what are you discovering about yourself?
