Christine Caine is the founder of a ministry called A 21 Campaign. It is an amazing ministry that pulls people out of sex slavery all over the world. I'm going to highlight her talk from Catalyst.
In the exercise world... we hear about how important our core strength is. We also have a core. There are three muscles we need to pay attention to. Our heart, our mind, and our soul.
If we don't give attention to our core, if it's not strong, it will collapse. This is why people start and don't finish. In Matthew 22: 34-40 Jesus was asked what the most important law was. The Jewish people had 613 Old Testament laws that they had to keep. Jesus narrowed that down to two. Love God, love people.
As Christians, we live with a broken heart, a wounded soul, and a tormented mind. We transfer this to our neighbors. We want to change the world, but not ourselves. We can't do that.
We need to guard our hearts, because from it, all things flow. Matthew 15:18 and Luke 6:45 mention this.
Transform your mind, like Hebrews 12 says! We need to recognize the truth of who we are, and who's we are!
Healing takes time. And it needs to come from God.
It all comes back to trust. Are you trusting God?
I can tell you one thing... EVERY single speaker at Catalyst said something that moved my heart. God spoke to me so loud and clear that it was amazing. I hope and pray that just these small little blog posts come across to your heart. I pray that you hear what God has to say to you. He loves us so much. He wants us healed, in our right minds, and loving His people for Him.
