The Bridge of Reconciliation
One man's story--Joseph. How he could not reconcile until there was evidence of ownership and a change of heart.
When Someone Hurts You
Understanding that forgiveness and trust are two separate things. Learning to release the hurt if the offending party has no interest in asking for forgiveness. Remember, forgiveness is a solo, reconciliation is a duet.
When You Hurt Someone
We are always certain people will hurt us, but what do you do to help mend a relationship if YOU are the one who did the offense?
What is forgiveness?
There are so many misconceptions over this word. This help clarify what forgiveness actually is in a balanced way.
Decide your Identity
This helps us look at who we are INDEPENDENT of what has been done to us. Am you going to let what happened to you become the defining moment of my life?
Mourn Your Loss
Grief and mourning are different. Mourning opens a positive door to positive change to begin the healing process. This clarifies the differences between grieving and mourning--critical to moving forward.
The Dungeon of Despair
People can get stuck in the unfairness of it all and replay mental tapes over and over again. Discovering whether we are stuck in the dungeon can motivate us to move through it. Otherwise we become a slave to the one who hurt us.
The Bitterness Tree
Intuitively people know the difference between anger and bitterness but this clarifies one of the main places people get stuck in the process of letting injustices go.
The Valley of Depression
Pain does strange things. Anger that I turn in on myself can lead to depression. This show creates an understanding of how depression works and some things that can help you out of that valley.
Own Your Burden
It is so important that we deal with the rocks of hurt and pain in our own backpack and not borrow someone else's rocks to put in our backpack as well.
Calculate the Losses
Pain changes the way we see our world. Fully understanding the depth of our losses helps us fully understand how the losses have impacted me relationally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Identify The Injury
The most important thing you can do on your journey to forgiveness, is to identify exactly what happened, to identify what kind of emotions you're are feeling, and identify who or what caused the injury. Jim Velez will walk you through that process in this episode.
