Awakening to My True Identity – Ted Dekker

Ted, an author whose writing often includes elements of darkness, explores the idea that perhaps a focus on the darkness in the world comes from a fear of God. And while we can’t love what we fear, fear, like other emotions, is largely subconscious. Ted, with very moving stories, challenges us to let go of our fear, even in the dark hours, by letting go of the offenses we feel we have been perpetrated against us. This, he says, is radical forgiveness. And this is possible through a change of our perception of our situation, knowing who we are and who our Father is. We can always see beauty instead of darkness, just as Jesus saw no reason for concern when the storm raged against the boat.
