Denial

Denial – “A false system of beliefs that aren’t based on reality” and “a self-protecting behavior that keeps us from honestly facing the truth.” Not sure about denial? Do any of these comments sound familiar to you?

  • Can’t we stop talking about it? Talking only makes it worse.”
  • If I tell her that it hurts me when she says that, I’m afraid she’ll leave me.
  • He really doesn’t drink that much!
  • I eat because you make me so mad!
  • If you wouldn’t nag me all the time then I wouldn’t…

My friends… this is DENIAL. The bible say in Jeremiah 6:14 (TLB) “You can’t heal a wound by saying it’s not there.”  Why not visit Celebrate Recovery (meets every Friday at 6:30PM) and begin to step out of your denial? Jesus told us, “Know the truth and the truth will set you free.”

Blessings to ya!

Chris
