From chronic physical pain to deep emotional hurts, we are all, at some level, in need of healing. And healing, writes author Stephen Arterburn, is a choice, although not our choice - it is God's choice. While that may lead us to understand that healing is out of our hands, there are several things we do or believe that can stand in the way of God's healing in our lives.

Describing ten choices we can make, and the corresponding ten lies that we must reject, Arterburn outlines the plan for opening our lives to God's divine touch. For example, to be receptive to God's healing, we must make the choice to feel; but we often buy into the lie that we need something to help numb the pain. Likewise, we can choose to embrace reality; but we often falsely believe that if we act as if nothing is wrong, the problem will go away.

Healing on all levels - spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical - is a miraculous gift from God; but it is a function of our own decisions and beliefs as well. When we make the right choices, and reject the lies, we can find the way to wholeness again.

Disappointed
1 stars By Maria, Oct 18 2016
I feel the cover is misleading as to the content of this book. The cover states that healing is a choice but then within the book the author claims that the choice to heal physically is ultimately up to God. Upon closer inspection, the book seems to be addressing healing of the emotions more than anything.

Unfortunately I feel It is a confusing title compared to the doctrine presented.

A Helpful Book for People Seeking Healing
4 stars By Dr. Bernard Low, Jun 20 2016
Stephen Arterburn has written a helpful book to challenge people to make choices that will help them heal from painful past. These choices include to connect your life, to feel your life, to investigate your life in search of truth, to heal your future, to help your life, to embrace your life, to forgive, to risk your life, to serve, and, to persevere. With each choice, Arterburn also uncovers the lie that may prevent us from making that choice. For example, to make the choice to connect your life, we must get rid of the lie "All I need to heal is just God and me." Throughout the book, there were real life stories of people who made some of these choices. The story includes the author's own account of his journey through divorce. This book will prove helpful to anyone desiring healing from pain, a new lease of life and wanting to be useful to God and others in service again despite one's pain.
