You're stupid. Ugly. Too short, tall, skinny, fat, dark, light, slow. You'll never amount to much. You don't measure up. You're not good enough. I don't want you. You're a failure. A punching bag. Damaged goods. Pervert. Unholy. Bad.
Ouch! There are as many labels as there are abusive parents, schoolyard bullies, mean girls, and self-righteous preachers to slap them on you.
The two most important labels in your life are how you label yourself, and how you label God. These labels create self-fulfilling prophecies. They determine how you relate to yourself, to others, and to God.
The good news is that God stands ready to peel away a lifetime of demeaning labels. He wants to label you the exact same way he labels Jesus: Beautiful. Accepted. Beloved. Rigtheous. Powerful. Good.
In Grace Rehab, Bill Giovannetti guides you through a total transformation of your inner labels. With humor and isnight, he explores 17 Riches in Christ to help you shed your self-defeating labels and embrace with confidence the joyful person you were meant to be.
