The HEART of the MATTER is not a "one and done" kind of read, but was designed to be a textbook, FOR LIFE!! Your heart is a big deal. The Word says in Proverbs 4:23 that, "It determines the course of your life." Your heart has everything to do with everything. Most people would agree, "Yeah I got pain." But most of us don't know what to do with it. We try to give it to Jesus, only to find that we are still starring at this ugly monster called Pain.
In this book, you will learn about the parts of your heart that God gave you. You have a Function part, that is your doer, an Emotion part, that is most closely connected to the unresolved pain in your heart, and you have a Guardian or your protector. The parts of your heart were designed to be connected to each other, but also to be connected with Jesus. But because life happens, and we experience pain, our heart gets separated. The enemy's goal is to overwhelm you with pain so that your Guardian steps in and shuts your heart down. When your heart shuts down you cannot get closer to Jesus. We enter "survival mode" and we live there. Jesus came to set the captives FREE. When the parts of our heart are connected with one another, as well as connected to Jesus, it allows us to live from a place that God designed for us to live from all along. It's called our Original Self.
Learning about the parts of your heart is not a technique that someone attached the name of Jesus to and then called it healing. This is how God created you and is a lifestyle. Have you ever learned another language? Did you pick it up after a few tries or by going over new information one time? Probably not. If you decide to take this journey, you will be learning the language of your heart. Your heart has been speaking to you for years. This book is designed to teach you, step by step, what your heart has been trying to say. It is also designed to be interactive so after each chapter, you will be led into "Heart Checks" that will help you define the hindrances that keep the parts of your heart separated.
In this book, you will also learn: How pain becomes a connector for more pain. Why the pain you thought you already dealt with is still there. How God created your heart to operate. How to connect with Jesus more deeply. How to learn what your heart has been trying to tell you for years. How the brain and heart are connected. And how to deal with the disappointing things of life in a healthy way. Pain never goes away. It has to be healed, and unhealed pain, leaks! The Holy Spirit is standing by. It's all about connection with the One who calls YOU by name. This book will lead you on a journey and it's really not as scary as it sounds. Jesus really is WHO He says He is.
Do I need this book you ask? This book is for anyone that feels stuck, has experienced a lot of pain and trauma and hasn't been able to get past it, or for anyone that is looking for a deeper intimacy with the Lord. The content that you will learn can also help with problems in your marriage. The freedom you yearn for, BELONGS TO YOU! So, what are you waiting for? Let's get to the HEART of the MATTER!
