Messy Worship: Reconciling Childhood Abandonment with the Truth of God
Psalm 66:16 "Come and hear, all you who fear God. Let me tell you what He has done for me."
Experiencing abandonment can leave us feeling rejected, unloved, and lonely. We may abandon our own needs in order to avoid conflict, criticism or disapproval, leading to a lack of authenticity in who we are and how we view others. When we are young we develop attachment styles that serve to protect us. But as we carry them into adulthood these same attachment styles can distort and disrupt our relationships. We place priority on perfection, rather than living in the freedom of the gospel.
In this class we will share our personal abandonment journey and How God has rescued us from the power of the enemy's lies.
As we teach about the affects of abandonment we believe God will continue to bring healing and restoration. By approaching Him in the messiness of our sin and imperfections, it allows us to live in the abundance of his love, acceptance, and grace. Authentic (yet messy) worship.
