There are things happening under the surface in our minds that can trap us in dissatisfaction and pain. Such things, if left unattended, can lead to toxic beliefs and behaviors that may overwhelm us with unexpected loneliness or despair. To understand how this happens, we need to explore the way our brains work and how repeated thoughts, experiences, and behaviors affect our minds.
We tend to create a version of God that is really a projection of our hopes, fears, biases, and experiences. This session will help us begin to peel back the layers of our perception of God until we see the true God revealed in the Bible and in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
We all deal with a disconnect between our thoughts and beliefs about ourselves on the inside versus how God views us. This session is aimed at helping you piece together a biblical and sustainable sense of your worth, identity, and value according to the Word of God.
God doesn’t just want to save us from death, sin, and hell—he also wants to save us for something and with someone. He wants to save us into restored and thriving relationships with himself and his people.
