At some point in every woman's life, a feeling of abandonment causes deep-rooted pain and insecurity. Maybe you've experienced a father leaving your family, or a husband who walked out on you. No matter the extremity, God cares for you and wants you to feel completely satisfied as his precious child. It's okay to have heartache over the people in this world who have misused your trust; this fallen world has its fair share of bruises to the heart. But God has a comfort like nothing else on earth, and this booklet will guide you through the steps to feel complete peace once again. Michelle Moore tells her story of having been abandoned by her mother when she was young. Her mother changed her identity and disappeared for nearly 18 years. To make things worse, her parents had divorced, and her father had remarried and didn't want her to live with him. "Just how awful am I?" she asked, "That not even my own parents want me?" Michelle's life was marked by sadness, fear, and pain. But God had a bigger plan for her - and for all those who suffer rejection and hurt. Abandonment to Forgiveness includes a Bible study by Paige Henderson that highlights God's loving promises to all who suffer from fear and insecurity. She reminds us of the story of Joseph, who suffered abandonment and betrayal, and went on to forgive and find strength. In the last section, licensed counselor Sharon Kay Ball, walks you the steps of grief and rebuilding your life through practical advice and biblical counsel. Abandonment to Forgiveness will bring you hope and wholeness. It will speak to your heart and will strengthen your faith. It includes questions and Scripture passages - along with space to journal.
