Healed Identity Journey
The Theotherpy Project supported and sponsored by First Century Faith®
“Therapy” means treatment intended to relieve or heal an aspect of our thinking that is out of order; not in conformity with the intended design; and “Theo” identifies the manner of therapy as prompted by the Father’s revealed purpose in our design and the experience of His care, concern and comfort therein – “God heals!” With that understanding as the foundation, we start doing the work of looking at our present through our past and to look at the experiences that have wounded and shaped us. Once we can start to identify some of these and the coping mechanisms that have developed in response to them, we can learn to change our mindsets and begin to accept God's unconditional love and pleasure in us. It starts the work of being able to differentiate between "knowing" you are loved, and "believing” you are loved. Victory is possible.
The Healed Identity Journey is a 22-week course developed out of years of study by Mark West in education and counseling. It has offered tremendous success in helping people be delivered from patterns of thought and ensuing behaviors that encouraged a life of bondage and captivity. We long to live fruitful lives and try and pray endlessly for victorious living promised in the Scriptures and wonder why in some areas we are so incapacitated. True discipleship takes courage to understand, confront, and eliminate that which keeps us from walking in alignment with Him.
Healed Identity Journey offers a safe place to come to your own understanding at your own pace and to deal with issues of life that disturb your soul with support and comfort and compassion. Learn how to develop solid and lasting relationships with ourselves, others, and our Creator.
"Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is,
and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls." Jeremiah 6:16
