"Cleansing the Sanctuary of the Heart is filled with the stories of real people who have had the courage to face the pain of their abuse, addictions and relational challenges. They have chosen to walk the path to healing. We do not claim that they live a life free from emotional pain today, but they have learned that on the journey of life in this fallen world, they are not alone. They have the promise of a loving God who has said that he will never leave them nor forsake them (Hebrews 13:5), that he would be with them in the darkest of times (Psalm 23:4), and even that he is suffering with them and carrying them while they are suffering (Isaiah 63:9).
These courageous people are maturing and growing into the men and women that God created them to be. They are learning to be honest with themselves and others, humble and repentant as they face the truth about themselves, open to receiving the comfort and healing of God, and forgiving as they have been forgiven (Ephesians 4:32). On this journey, they are being healed but also equipped to be used as instruments of healing in the lives of others (2Cor. 1:3-5) and to be used to prepare this world for the second coming of Jesus Christ."
