Cutting Cutting

A Healing Response

by Lelek, Jeremy

When feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or self-condemnation set in, some people seek painful release in their own flesh and blood. While cutting can bring temporary relief, it falls far short of the genuine change that is essential to true healing of the heart. Through the direct and honest example of one young woman’s story, the author points those in such pain to the sufferings of Jesus Christ and the finished work of the cross as their means of hope, security, and healing. He helps them to turn from trusting in their own body and blood to trusting in the body and blood of Jesus, which alone has the power to bring true freedom. This booklet is part of a series by the Association of Biblical Counselors (ABC) in which it applies the timeless hope of Christ to the unique struggles of modern believers.
