Affliction & Addiction Plague Us Today

In today’s episode, we’re discussing our guest, Olivia Cook’s key concept of “landing pads” where the enemy lands on old soul wounds and wreaks havoc in our lives. Along with my co-host, LaTan Roland Murphy, we hope to bring inspiring guests and conversation to you each week. Ultimately, our heart’s desire is to see you walking in wholeness and living in victory.

We’ve all experienced trauma in our lives.

Unfortunately, children cover up their pain and then grow into adults with underlying issues. Tragically, this results in discouragement and disappointment with ourselves, others, and often with God. We don’t understand why we act the way we do. But, there is help for getting real healing for soul wounds.

Questions to think about when thinking about affliction:

1. How do identify soul wounds or traumas in our lives?
2. Why does this (fill in the blank) keep happening to me?

In today’s episode, Olivia explains the process of working through the areas of our lives where we experience addiction and affliction.

  • acknowledging
  • healing
