I have seen these spiritual blessings as our natural human feelings are dramatically changed into a "new creation" that can only be celebrated as new spiritual realities our of the old emotional malformations - toxic shame healed into humility and self-acceptance, heavy guilt transformed into an ethic of accountability, controlling anger changed into courageous strength, agonizing loneliness into communities of love, aching tiredness refreshed and vitalized, sorrow and sadness becoming profound joy, disabling fear converted into peaceful wisdom, and oppressive pain into sensitive compassion for others. I have been present in the midst of these transformative rides - as feelings become true friends, redeemed and altered forever by the Holy Spirit. This book is an eyewitness testimony to such miracles of God's healing love. A.
