A House that Grace Built

AHTGB: Chapter 1: The Task of Rebuilding


We had a great class, but I apologize to those on the webinar who lost the video connection. Hang in there! We’ll have better connection equipment soon! Also, for those who had a chance to share in small groups and the online chat, thank you! Connection will be a theme, and this is a healthy and positive environment where we can learn the benefits of sharing from the heart and being vulnerable.

Chapter 1 dealt primarily with the principles of surrender, rebuilding, relating to God in love and understanding the power of the Holy Spirit. The crumbling house we are talking about in this chapter is the nature of our codependence – which appears in the form of self-sufficiency. It is the mind-set of being orphaned, and having to manage life without necessary resources. But because God is invited to the scene of “wreckage”, watching the house fall down is something to embrace. It’s burden, it’s lie, it’s stronghold are what God wants to throw away. In it’s place, He read, able and competent to rebuild.

Transaction for the Week:

Am I ready, if I haven’t already, to let the crumbling house fall down the cliff? Do I EXPECT God to be there to catch me, and begin to rebuild His way? Do I believe that He can?  Do I believe He loves me and wants to?

Next week:

Read Chapter 2 and answer the questions in the workbook. Also, begin the habit of journaling as discussed in Chapter 1. It is vital to learn the relational style that it addresses.

  1. Hello,
    The Christian codependency recovery workbook.
    I’m trying g to follow on the Webinar, but I believe I am getting the Web on family values. It is the same video each week. I remember a couple years ago I would type in freedom each week and would hear a new lesson. This time it does not work. I’m so confused. I really want to go forward with this class. Thank you
    Sincerely connie nader
