The Lies We Believe

In my few posts in the last couple months we have been talking about some of the things in our lives that will hinder us from becoming healthy, whole and free.  Free to be who God created us to be, to fulfill the purposes He has for us and live out the potential that is with in us.  We talked about codependency, destructive family patterns and discontentment. 

I had an opportunity to speak at a Ladies Retreat at Faith Outreach Center.  This is a very special church and group of ladies to me.  This is the church I grew up in spiritually and learned so much of what God has called me to do. 

As I prayed about what God would have me share with the ladies I truly felt it was the four areas I have found to keep us from moving forward in our lives.  These are areas that I work on often with my clients and when they really work on them and do the spiritual and practical work that needs to be done, there is change.

Two of the areas I have already talked about in this blog. 
  1. Destructive Family Patterns  
  2. Unforgiveness
The other two are:

     3. Any kind of sexual brokenness(past abuse, trauma or misuse)

And the one I'm going to talk about for the next couple posts:

    4. The LIES we believe

The lies we believe about ourselves and God.   Most of these lies come from other 3 above experiences:

Next post we will begin to look at the lies that we have embraced about ourselves based on our experiences, circumstances and our culture.

Coach K......a great topic indeed! Not only do we beleive the lies from circumstances of the past, but also the lies that we have been told over and over. I will stay tuned to your instruction and wisdom because, this truth, might certainly set me free! Great job! Love ya.
