In the book Hiding From Love, Dr. John Townsend, co-director for the Minirth-Meier Clinics, writes: "When we hide, a part of our character is pushed away from relationship into a spiritual darkness called isolation. The isolation of some part of our soul from love will always produce a problem. This makes sense, because whatever is isolated from nourishment remains broken and undeveloped. In the physical world, we call this malnutrition. Spiritual and emotional malnutrition are just as destructive."
I think on my way to work I might have to stop at Family Christian Stores and pick this one up.... I hate to read but maybe this will be one thats worth forcing myself to read.
