I embarked on a journey that has opened my eyes, and given me a deeper understanding of how much God loves me. I also learned how deep Satan’s deceptions and lies have distorted us from the perfect creation we are meant to be. Through searching the scriptures, theory classes and practical life skills workshops, we learned about God’s character and gained a deeper understanding of His love for us. He knows our sins and weaknesses, but He loves us anyway. “You are where you are, and that’s okay”. He teaches us to love others for who they truly are; faults, flaws and all! And this is where the healing begins. In a kind, loving, accepting, supportive environment we can be honest about our hurts, pains and sins. Praise the Lord, when we find ourselves in a safe environment where we can share our deepest darkest hurts and fears. Satan’s lies are exposed and stopped in their tracks. We can begin to see our true value and identity. Regardless of our past. God loves us anyway! This is why Jesus came and died on the cross for us, and “by His stripes we are healed” Isaiah 53:5. Due to my time at Healing Rain, I learned how to really surrender my will to Christ and trust in Him more. Something I’ve been praying for victory over for a very long time. I highly recommend the 10-day Healing Rain School.
