As part of our focus on mental & emotional health this series looks at the power of our individual stories, especially our childhood and formative years, and how they impact us both for good and bad in our adult life.
Simply put, in order to move forward in healthier ways we often need to look back first.
And as we do that, God invites us to see, own and rewrite our stories according to his redemptive work in our lives.
How can you draw close to God when you are far from your own self? Grant, Lord, that I may know myself that I may know thee. — St Augustine
