Counterfeit Comforts: Freedom from the Imposters That Keep You from True Peace, Purpose and Passion
When the pressures of life become overwhelming, our first instinct is to seek out comfort. From turning to our go-to foods or shopping or exercise or favorite books or television shows--even alcohol, smoking, or cutting--we look to what is around us, seeking refuge and release from the stress. While not all these things are inherently bad, when we continually retreat first to the temporary relief these counterfeit comforts offer, they can--and will--become addictive and actually enslave us.
With grace and warmth, author Robia Scott shows how true healing and lasting satisfaction can be found only as we learn to transfer our dependence from counterfeit comforts onto our one true Comforter: the Holy Spirit. From battling her own counterfeits, such as anorexia, body image, and success, Scott leads you step by step through the process of breaking the knee-jerk pattern of responding, reacting, and running to the counterfeits. Instead, she shows how you can simply come--without striving or trying harder--and enter his presence to experience the true comfort your soul is longing for.
