It's all too easy slip into believing lies over God’s truth. My guest today shares that healing is possible and opens up about her personal healing journey from both physical and emotional abuse and chronic illness.
An author, radio host, and national speaker, Susie Larson, talks about how intertwined our emotional, spiritual, and physical health are. We talk through stories that are in her new book, "Fully Alive", and she shares about some powerful experiences she’s had with the Lord.
“The Lord whispered through the chaos in my bathroom. The storms reveal the lies we believe and the truth we need. The enemy's railing and saying I'm going to get you. I've got you by the throat and I felt like my throat was starting I could swallow and my esophagus was spasming. It's just horrifying to hear the whisper again. Storms reveal the lies we believe and the truth who need.”
There’s so much hope and truth in this episode for all of us who are believing for healing this side of heaven. For more inspiration from Susie, I highly recommend her book, "Fully Alive"**, which is available for pre-order right now.
What we chat about:
- Susie’s experiences with abuse both physical and emotional
- How our bodies hold onto trauma and hindrances to the healing process
- Storms reveal the lies we believe and the truth we need
- The idea of blessing guilt and surrendering to God for healing
- The lie of learned helplessness and the truth that we’re not helpless with Jesus
- Rejecting the lies of the enemy and addressing unbeliefs in our soul
- Confronting the scar tissue of our past and the life that’s on the other side of it
- God absolutely heals and it isn’t specifically a lack of faith that keeps us from receiving healing
- Jesus entered in to other’s pain and suffering, that’s our calling too
