The Judeo-Christian tradition recognizes the human heart as both the reflective and motivational center of the human person. Scriptural passages in both Old and New Testaments affirm the importance of our hearts in matters of our spirituality and how we live out our faith. Using the metaphor of a "fenced in heart" the reader will identify seven different emotional barriers that can prevent them from hearing and discerning God's voice within. The reader will also be able to interact with scripture, and share their own stories through the journaling pages and workbook questions included. Chapters include: ?Fences Built by Self Doubting~ Embrace Your Identity in Christ ?Fences that Keep Others Out~ Learning to Live in Community ?Fences that Hold us In~ Freedom in Sharing with God and Others ?Fences We Put Between Ourselves and God~ Desiring to be in a Relationship with God ?Fences of Envy~ Accepting and Loving Ourselves as Children of God ?Fences of Anger~ Healing and Reconciliation ?Fences of Fear~ Freedom to Trust the Holy Spirit Within Your Heart "This must-read book can be used many different ways.
