The Cry of the Heart for Intimate Belonging
Many Christians feel broken and angry but don’t think they can express these real feelings around others–or to God. So we put on a mask to hide our identity. Feelings of embarrassment and shame make us hide from the One who truly loves us. Author Brennan Manning encourages you to let go of this stressful, unreal impostor lifestyle and freely accept your identity as a child of God. Find the rest that you long for as you grow in character and accept His lordship. Includes discussion questions.
Try reading this book – Daddy, you Love Me: Living in the Approval of your Heavenly Father Brent Lokker
I realise that for some of you this title will put you off. It seems a little gushy for you. I felt a little like this and find the book perhaps over the top. What I love about it is that it completely challenges the way I think and feel about my Father God. I am letting it wash over me until one day I understand it and believe it fully.
I am reading ‘Face to Face with God‘ again – written by Bill Johnson.
I feel the chapter ‘Heading to the Promised Land’ particular important at the moment. It is has some fantastic insights on the story of Moses and the people of Israel
Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Peter Scazzero
It lacks Holy Spirit flowing and is a little too much into monastic practice but it is revelatory as far as healthy emotions and being emotionally mature is concerned.
