Many Christians struggle with feelings of anger, guilt and depression - or sometimes just the sense that something inside isn't right. Both spiritual and practical, this book provides an approach to finding real and lasting wholeness based on the power of prayer and Scripture.
These Words Are The Heart-Cry of many Christians who, in spite of their relationship with the Lord, find themselves dealing with overwhelming anger, guilt, depression-or perhaps the nagging feeling that something inside them just is not right. In Lord, I Want to Be Whole, Stormie outlines seven biblical steps to wholeness, based on the power of prayer and Scripture to change your life: * Release the past. * Live in obedience to God. * Recognize and resist your real enemy. * Don't settle for less than total restoration. * Receive the gifts God has given you. * Reject common pitfalls. * Stand strong when difficulties come.
When Stormie Omartian was a child, her mother would lock her in a closet and say, "You are worthless, and you'll never amount to anything." How did a young girl who grew up in an abusive home learn to overcome her past pain to find emotional wholeness as an adult? Lord, I Want to Be Whole offers seven steps that helped Stormie overcome clinical depression and live a more fulfilling life. She shows readers how prayer and the encouragement of Scripture can help them come to terms with their past. She also tells how to find deliverance from spiritual oppression and negative influences, learn to receive God's gifts and believe the good things God says about us, become aware of deceptions and misconceptions, and maintain emotional health by taking care of our bodies and being sensitive to what is happening inside us. Lord, I Want to Be Who helps those who are troubled by depression find emotional wholeness and become all God made them to be
