03_Dealing with Family & Others While You Heal, Just Rest Book Club – Premium Content

God’s invitation for you to work with Him always affects those around you, and they will not always understand or support your efforts to grow and change out of old, destructive, but comfortable ways. How do we manage their expectations and needs while also addressing our own? We’re moving into chapter three of Just Rest, addressing our emotions and the logistics of healing in the midst of other important relationships.

L | Listen (Receive the Word via audio or video.)

How are the book club meetings and what you’re learning from the book dovetailing with your daily readings? Have you noticed how God is supporting you in His word through the readings? 

V | Verbalize (Pray about your thoughts and emotions.)

Remembering that He loves you and that you are in His presence, talk to God about the particulars of your O – Observe step. You may want to write your reflections in your LOVE the Word® journal. Or, get a free journal page and guide in the right-hand margin.

E | Entrust (May it be done to me according to your word!)

Heavenly Father, I ask that Your love flow upon me. May the Blood of Christ cover all wounds and restore all in me to wholeness and life. May the fire from Our Lady’s heart now enter me and anoint everything with the Holy Spirit and blind Satan. May St. Joseph wrap me with blessings and peace, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen + (Prayer for Inner Healing, Deliverance Prayers for the Laity, Fr. Ripperger)
