Are you in a situation that feels hopeless and unchangeable? This book can help you find hope again.
"Much of the secret of life is learning to get off the hamster wheel of fruitless suffering while remaining on the Potter's wheel. Kim will help you learn the difference. Read on."~From the foreword by John Ortberg, author of God is Closer Than You Think.
Kim Engelmann grew up in a highly dysfunctional home, she lived a tense and lonely life, enduring verbal and spiritual abuse from her mother while her father denied the existence of any problems. Her earnest prayers combined with efforts to be a better daughter brought no relief from the emotional and spiritual suffering. Later, the negative thought and behavior patterns were repeated in her marriage. She was stuck on a "hamster wheel" - running in endless circles that led nowhere.
But she found hope. Kim was able to move from the hamster wheel to the "potter's wheel" - the revolutionary process of being transformed through suffering. As the potter shapes the clay into a beautiful and functional work, so are we changed and redeemed by Christ as we work through our pain.
In Running in Circles you will learn,
- how the wrong kind of spiritual language keeps us stuck
- how to change your thinking from blame and judgment to forgiveness and grace
- how to allow God to mold you into his image
- suggestions for prayer that can transform
