In this episode, I’m talking about a lie that once rooted, can become a core belief that affects how we see ourselves and respond to others – it’s my fault. The lie that we may believe, it is my fault, can keep us thinking we are broken. When it fact, God restores all things.
I want to warn you before you listen that this might be triggering for some of you as my guest, personal coach and author Jill Monaco, shares candidly about sexual abuse that she suffered within the church and how it lead her to believe the lie that it was her fault. She also offers advice on how you can begin healing and encouragement in God’s power to redeem us and anything that has been taken from us.
Points from our conversation today:
- Jill’s childhood abuse became the root of believing the lie that it’s her fault
- Healing and forgiveness do not equal reconciliation
- How prayer and studying the Bible helped Jill recover her faith after being abused multiple times within the church
- Encouragement for Christians who have reservations about returning to church after trust has been broken
- God is a perpetual redeemer for all of us and we can trust Him in the process
