Now that you have completed the fundamentals of your self-examination process, you would think that is enough.

However, our lives are a complex maze of issues and complications. Our scars are caused by many different things.

In the previous sessions, you have looked at your life events, your feelings, and your story.

You have learned about the hope that is available to you. You have even learned more about God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Now, let us dig a little deeper by looking into areas we may or may not be aware of being harmful or hurtful to us.

REFLECT ON THE THINGS YOU HAVE DUG UP

How have these things impacted your life?

Do you know realize that these issues in the past represent scars in your life that you have never been able to get rid of?

How have these issues in my life impacted my relationship to God?

What did the LIFELINE show you?

When you drew the apple tree, how many apples.did you have? Now, reflect on that number.

Pray, ask God to show you the importance or significance of that number.

Stop. Take a moment to pray for God to reveal all facts regarding your past no matter how you feel at the moment.

Often, as you identify one thing, your memories start to unravel other things.

Jot anything that comes to your mind as you pray on your LifeLine worksheet.
