Mastering Me (eBook)
Conquering Pain Through Faith
de Tashuna Scott
Sobre o livro
Hurt (pain) is a crippling, deceiving, and destructive force that the enemy uses to stumble, blind, and even stop people from all walks of life! It strives to put us in its world all alone only to invite in other deteriorating powers that will eventually destroy us. Many of us have had our rounds with hurt, thinking that we were winning the fight, only to find out that it has knocked us down and we still haven’t gotten back up. Some are Christians, yet they are so hurt that their lights are dim and dull, ready to go out. Others haven’t given God a chance because hurt has made them so leery of life and the people in it that they shut the door to any hopeful thought in someone or something new.
Mastering Me is a journey of self-discovery as the author uses the Bible as a mirror for each individual soul to look into. She tells her story of a young unlearned, unchurched, and gullible married minister who unknowingly didn’t expect to deal with controlling, hateful, and unloving individuals in the church. She doesn’t tell her story in a tell all fashion. However, she characterizes the pain of loss, rejection, abandonment, and hopelessness and deals with the mental and emotional bouts that come along with it all. She cleverly uses biblical characters like Samson to demonstrate the loss of power and falling into the enemy’s hand. She describes her battles with suicide, spans of depression, a loss of self-worth, and self-identification as she was bewitched into living a double life in the Church. Then she brings the reader to the pivotal point of change and describes the upward spiral of moving toward restoration and a new life. The upward spiral is no skip through the tulips, but a face to face encounter with self. This book is a guide that will teach you more than how to survive; it will teach you how to OVERCOME!
