The Half Truths my Heart Still Believes about God

The following is list of common half-truths and outright lies our heart may still hang onto about our Creator.


My Heart Still Believes this:


   1.    “I am all alone and no one can / will help.”     “I have been overlooked, not needed and no one cares.  There is no one to protect me.  I cannot trust anyone.  No one rescued or saved me.  Maybe God has forsaken me too.”

Abandoned, alone unprotected and devastated, lost, not trusted.


   2.    “I am an idiot, stupid because I should have done something to stop it.”  I should have known better, but I kept going back.  It was my fault.  I did not try hard enough to stop them.”    “I caused it by my ….  sex/looks/etc.”

Shame, guilt blame, numb, flawed, broken, useless.


   3.    “Because this happened to me, I am broken, damaged and will never be happy.”     “I felt pleasure and I wanted the attention.  I deserved it, I am cheap, shameful, and dirty and everyone will see my uncleanness and will never be able to love me again.”

Tainted, dirty, unclean, ruined, inept, defiled, impaired,  cursed, lost, screwed up.

   4.    “I am going to be caught again and no one can stop it.”  I know they are coming back to get me and something bad will happen again.  It’s just a matter of time, since I can’t trust anyone again, even God.”

Fear, panic, anxious, numb, betrayed, trapped.

   5.    “I cannot stop this and there is no way out.”     “I am too weak to resist and the pain is too great.”     “I am trapped and even God can’t help me.  I am overwhelmed; I am pulled in every direction with no way out.”


Powerless, trapped, hopeless, weak, panic.

   6.    “I am not loved, wanted, cared for or import-ant even to be bothered with.”     “I am worthless, a mistake and I should never have been born.  “   “I can never please them, I am not acceptable.  I had no good reason to live as I am unworthy of ever finding acceptance, even with God.”

Invalidated, discarded, lost insignificant,  second-class, not wanted,  inferior, rejected.

   7.    “Everything is confusing and nothing makes sense.”  “Why are they doing this to me.  I feel so lost and confused.”

   Confusion, unsure, disjointed, disordered.
