Emotional healing

Standard

The first truth is that we are all invalids in God’s hospital. In moral and spiritual terms, we are all sick and damaged, diseased and deformed, scarred and sore, lame and lopsided, to a far, far, greater extent than we realize.  (JI Packer)

 

“Emotional healing is almost always a process. It takes time. There is a very important reason for this. Our heavenly Father is not only wanting to free us from the pain of past wounds, he is also desirous of bringing us into maturity , both spiritually and emotionally. That takes time, because we need time to learn to make the right choices. He loves us enough to take the months and years necessary to not only heal our wounds , but also build our character. Without growth of character we will get wounded again.”  (Floyd McClung)
