Too Fragmented to Function

Kathy — When our self-image takes a hit, it is tempting to feel so fragmented that we stop functioning.  If we do, then condemnation seeps into those cracks and tries to “kill”  (Jn.10:10) our relationship with our Father and tries to “steal”  (Jn.10:10) our sense of worth and tries to “destroy” (Jn.10:10) our self-government.  Condemnation is one of the most lethal weapons the devil uses because it carries a mixture of truth and lie that is particularly toxic.  Condemnation’s first punch is usually true, like, “You know you messed up. You’re guilty.”   However, it’s second punch is a poisonous lie like, “There is no way out, no healing for a damaged self-image.  There is no way to redeem value that was lost and no restoration of broken boundaries.”  Those lies should make you want to spit!
