We don’t see with our eyes; we see with our brain. Our brain interprets the images that come through the eyes and we believe that to be reality. Likewise, we don’t perceive with our brain. Our five senses receive data from the outside world that is interpreted by our heart. That perception of the world is what drives all of our reactions to the world.

Those dealing with past emotional pain are never capable of dealing with the present. Their inappropriate reactions to the present are not based on what is happening in the present, but based on the perceptions of a broken heart.
According to Jesus, the prison of the brokenhearted is a prison of perception. Join me and others all around the world this week in Impact CyberChurch as I help you find freedom from The Prison of Perception. When your broken heart is healed you will see yourself differently, then you can see God differently and ultimately you will see the world differently!
