The Uncaged Project
Where was God? Why did this happen? These difficult questions are the legacy of suffering. Childhood abuse so mutilates the spirituality of its victim that the goodness of God is often called into question. This ripped place in the souls of survivors can even threaten their deepest understanding of God. It is an almost impossible dilemma to need God deeply and also feel betrayed by him. There seems to be no resolution to the conflict that most abuse survivors feel. They often conclude that God either permitted the abuse to occur or that he did not care. Even if the survivor is a deeply committed Christian, this sense of betrayal by God sometimes undermines both his or her spiritual wholeness and relational health.
"The Uncaged Project" addresses the core issue of the damage caused from abuse: an estranged or broken relationship with God. This self-help study responds to the spiritual confusion created by childhood abuse through a carefully constructed presentation. The heart of God is exposed to reveal his response to the condition of abuse. The connection that abuse survivors have with Christ's experiences on Earth, the motivation of God in his handling of human suffering, and the trap of self-defeating reactions to spiritual pain are thoroughly addressed. Additionally, the survivor is given access to Biblical tools and strategies in order to find release from the false shame of abuse. They can become empowered to take ownership of their lives.
