Whats Eating You?
Whats Eating You? is the title of Ken Legg’s latest book. Ken says, “Whatever is happening in your life at the present time is a result of that which is in your heart. We cannot live above the level of our heart.”
Ken is pastor of New Beginnings Christian Church on the Gold Coast. He has authored 16 books. Almost half of these are bible study books for small groups, including the best seller The Road Ahead, a study book for new Christians which has sold over 20,000 copies throughout Australia.
Ken says, “Life happens from the inside out. And yet we tend to attack human problems from the outside.” He gives a couple examples of this. “Much of today’s counselling is based on behaviour modification – an attempt to fine-tune the way people live by getting them to make external adjustments. In contrast, if we can change erroneous beliefs and perceptions which are entrenched deep within us we will experience lasting change. That’s because our lives will always line up with that which is in our hearts.”
Ken adds, “Medical science confirms that health and healing, also, begin on the inside.” It is reckoned that at least 60%-70% of sicknesses may be classified as psychosomatic, i.e. the health of the body is determined by the state of the mind. And yet, our approach to health is, again, usually from the outside, i.e. by means of diet, exercise and prescription medicine. Whilst these things are important they will be of no ultimate value if the root problem within is not addressed.”
Whats Eating You? was written to help people find health and wholeness from the inside out. Ken says that he is surprised that whilst there is so much helpful information available on how to maintain good physical health through eating properly etc., there is little emphasis on how to resolve inner-conflict.
Ken’s book, whilst written from a biblical perspective and mainly for Christians, also has appeal to a much wider audience. “Everyone has to deal with negative emotions such as anxiety, depression, anger, unresolved guilt, resentment and bitterness,” says Ken. “Also, many do not know how to bring closure to grief caused by abuse in the past, or how to deal with toxic relationships in the present.” These are some of the issues probed in the book.
We need to face the facts that more and more people suffer poor health and live hellish lives because of unresolved inner-stress and social conflicts. That’s why this book is called, Whats Eating You?
So, what’s happening inside of you right now? Whatever is taking place in your life is a result of that which is in your heart. This book will help you to:
*Know your own heart
*Recognize the negative emotions which reside there
*Understand how they got there, and God’s way of dealing with them
*Bring an end to unresolved inner-pain, such as anger, resentment, bitterness, unforgiveness, anxiety, depression, etc., enabling you to move on in your life
*Bring closure to the grief resulting from the way that others have treated you in the past, e.g. through abuse, rejection, etc.
*Know how to handle present toxic relationships
