I’m excited to tell you about this brand new book that just released today! I had the honor of serving on the launch team for Mary DeMuth and I wholeheartedly believe in the messages she writes.
Have you ever sat down and went through the Lord’s Prayer step by step? I certainly hadn’t at the level Mary recently taught us to.
In her new book, The Wall Around Your Heart: How Jesus Heals You When Others Hurt You, DeMuth takes you through this prayer, the emotions, the heartache, the bitterness, and ultimately, the forgiveness.
We’ve all been in that moment in our lives, most certainly more than once, where our anger and hurt have kept us from being open to the healing of Jesus, therefore, building a wall, or a fortress for some, around our hearts. I know mine was certainly a fortress.
What if we begin with Jesus?
What if we decided today to break down the walls, whether it’s brick by brick or with a bulldozer?
Asking yourself Who is Jesus? – and being truthful in your answer – is the most important question you’ll ever ask. Why? Because how we frame our answer determines how much we allow Him into our pain, whether past or present.
It hurts. It’s scary. I get it. But it’s worth it.
Honestly, what do we have to lose by letting Jesus in to heal the pain vs. trying to do it ourselves?
I remember being eight years old, standing on the playground with a teacher who forced me to run laps because I was “too fat.” I looked up at her and with a few choice words, said, “No more!” It was great that I finally stood up for myself that day, but something else happened. Something not so great. I started building a fortress around my heart.
I encourage you to continue reading my review and learning more about this powerful book over at Open Hearted Power. I pray it blesses you.
