  • The way God thinks

    No one has an easy life. We all have problems, hurts and hidden wounds. One of the deepest hurts is rejection. Whether the rejection is from parents, children, peers, or partners it all hurts. How do you deal with the pain from rejection and other hurts that come in life?
    One way God heals us is by fixing our wounded spirit. God begins repairing our wounded spirit by telling us how valuable we are, and how important we are to Him. We are so valuable to God that He sent His Son to heal us. It’s true! That is the story of the New Testament.
