Set Your Mind by Joyce Meyer

When Life Loses Its Sweetness by Mac Hammond


Today's featured devotional...
rxmedicalToday we hear much about recovery. There are divorce recovery workshops, alcohol and chemical dependency support groups, co-dependency recovery classes. It seems that there is a great emphasis on restoring the soul (mind, will, & emotions) and rightfully so. There are many, many wounded people even in the church. Maybe I should say, especially in the church.

In faith circles, people are sometimes hesitant to admit they don’t “have it all together.” To admit that you are in mental, emotional, or physical distress would be considered a “faith-failure”. Instead of seeking support from the body of Christ, many have kept their pain to themselves, suffering as they keep up a good front.

Unfortunately, relationship and marital failures have exploded also. Rather than admit their difficulties, many have found it necessary to leave the church because of the judgmental attitudes of their peers and leaders.

Jesus taught that our faith in God is to be used to solve all the problems of life. We all have something to recover from. Whether you have experienced the trauma of physical, sexual, and verbal abuse, or just have a negative self-image, God is the answer to your ultimate healing and recovery.

Anyone who appears to “have it all together” is not showing an honest face before the world; whether it because of fear or ego. If any of us were perfect, Jesus would not have needed to make the trip to planet earth!

It was my privilege to participate in a seminar on “restoring the soul”.  The honesty of the speakers in sharing their own struggles was in itself very healing. Many of the letters and comments that I received after the seminar said, “Thank you for your honesty. Thank you for showing how to use our faith for healing that unmentionable area, the emotions.”

I want to share with you highlights of what I believe to be one of the best teachings that I have done.

Sources of Mental and Emotional Distress 

There are some teachers who would lead you to believe that all mental and emotional problems are caused by demonic activity. I will be the   rst to admit that I have seen demonic oppression cause a great amount of turmoil in the emotional arena;however, every case of emotional distress is not demonic, there are other sources to consider:
