Journey Into Wholeness
A Strategy to Partner With God’s Heart to Walk Into Wholeness.
by Rev. Dr. Carolyn R. Allen View author's profile page

Overview


Journey Into Wholeness is a strategy to partner with God's heart to walk into wholeness. It describes how a local church demonstrates pastoral care by addressing foundations of practices and principles for taking care of the soul – our inner wellbeing. Ministry to the soul affects physical healing as well. We endeavor to minister to the whole person as we grow in our understanding of God's provision for us in Jesus Christ. Knowing God and becoming who God says we are is our desired destination as we move forward on our journey into wholeness. Learning to ask God key questions will enable the reader to evaluate thoughts that don't agree with God. Those thoughts produce feelings that will lead to ungodly behavior, if not challenged and changed. Changing your thoughts will change your life. This principle is a powerful concept to embrace and apply as we walk into wholeness. In Journey into Wholeness you will learn foundational biblical principles that will lead you through practical ministry and personal application. The end result of ministering to the whole person is spiritual transformation…thinking, feeling and behaving like Jesus.

Those thoughts produce feelings that will lead to ungodly behavior, if not challenged and changed. Changing your thoughts will change your life. This principle is a powerful concept to embrace and apply as we walk into wholeness. The three sections of this book move the reader from foundational concepts through practical ministry to personal application. Part One presents foundational biblical principles from which we endeavor to minister. Principles covered are kingdom of God truths that affect how we view God, others and ourselves. Part Two presents SoulCare, an approach that ministers to the whole person – body, soul and spirit. We endeavor to present those in our realm of influence "complete in Christ." We work out our salvation with the understanding that salvation is "being saved out from under the devil's power and restored into the wholeness of God's order and wellbeing by the power of the Spirit." As we minister, we take into consideration specific areas that affect our daily lives: generational patterns, word curses, vows, bitter root judgments, soul ties, ungodly thought patterns, life's hurts, and demonic interference. Examples for prayers are presented that will launch you into a conversation with the Lord Jesus to release freedom. Part Three presents some tools the author has developed to help people apply truth to daily living. The intentional work does not end with a ministry session. It marks the beginning of a journey to develop new habits of thinking. New thought patterns will initiate new feelings and behavior. Achieving wholeness and completeness is a walk in the Spirit, a process that needs ongoing attention. This is the journey God invites us to take with Him - a Journey Into Wholeness.
