When you build your life from a core wound, oftentimes addiction manifests in some form. You may try to stop the destructive behavior but until that core wound finds healing, the addiction will likely continue. To clean up the outside the inside must be cleaned up first. Jesus wants to heal your core wound—to clean the inside of the cup—and from that healing bring freedom.
Jesus wants your false construct—the life you've built from a core wound—to come down. You're going to have to release the pain to God and allow him to bring healing to your wound. Only then can you truly build your life on the Rock.
Last week, Gary talked about the danger of building your house on a false construct, or your core wound. Today, he shares a life that lasts is built on the rock, and that this foundation is found in Christ. Just as God was pleased with Jesus before he had done any miraculous or noted deed, he is pleased with those in relationship with them outside of anything they do.
This week, Gary talks about a trap some people fall into; the trap of building a life on a false construct. When someone does this, they are building a life to compensate and overcome the things they think are missing in their lives. What are you building your life on?
Core wounds come from traumatic experiences, and what ends up happening is, you start living from a place of "when this happens..." instead of from the fullness of Christ. Success comes from knowing and living from God's love, and when you tap into that, He'll give you what's missing.
There is trauma that occurs when something happens to you that shouldn't, but in this episode, Gary talks about the form of trauma that takes place when something should happen to you but doesn't. Today, ask God is there is something in your life that is missing and how you can find healing in that area of your life.
Are you in a place of pain, struggling in the aftermath of trauma? Healing a wounded heart is essential to living a healthy life. Don't hold onto the pain any longer—offer it to the Lord.
Have you been keeping it all in to be a Christian that has it seemingly put together, or holding in your hurts because you're too afraid of what others will think? You are not alone, friend. Gary relates to the human condition in today's 86 Seconds.
