Digging Deeper

From confusion to Peace

Pushing through negative emotions into God’s truth.

Roots through pain

How I’m feeling Trusting God

The Psalms – The Blues & gospel.

‘for me, its in his despair that the Psalmist really reveals the nature of his special relationship with God’ Bono

Your pain is not the end of the story

We can be raw and honest with God, because of his true nature.

We move from how we’re feeling to truth – through honesty.

What views of God – hinder total honesty with him?

Psalm 35

  • Crying out to God
  • The actions of the wicked
  • How the Psalmist feels
  • Truth & Praise
  • Hopeful outcome

Experience

Emotion

Assumption

(self)

Lie about God

wicked prosper

confusion

It’s not fair

God isn’t real

enemies mock

afraid

defend myself

God’s ways fail

silent heaven

abandoned

shame

God is

rejecting us

feel awful

despair

I’m empty/hopeless

Not there

 

What enables you to get to that place of seeing what you are really believing?

A simple process

  • What’s going on?
  • What am I feeling
  • What am I believing?

CHOICE

  • Lord please help
  • I remember when
  • This is still true
