Processing the issues of your heart is a process and path in helping you resolve issues of offense, hurt and loss.
The GAP is a key perspective in helping you decide who or what you are going to process. The idea here is to avoid comparing the person or situation with others (horizontally). There is always someone who has had it better or worse. If you compare horizontally, you will tend to minimize or make excuses for the offending person, and therefore never process the offense, hurt or loss.
WHO OR WHAT HAS OFFENDED OR HURT YOU? OR…WHO OR WHAT HAVE YOU LOST?
HOW HAVE YOU BEEN AFFECTED?
HOW HAVE YOU RESPONDED TO THIS SPECIFIC OFFENSE, HURT OR LOSS?
POUR OUT YOUR HEART TO THE LORD.
