Spiritual direction includes counseling and life coaching components as we pursue God’s healing for the past and wisdom for the future.
It is a journey of refining your spirit through Biblical principles of faith, prayer, and sacraments. It is a safe place without judgment or condemnation. We will walk together further into God’s presence, wisdom, peace, and love.
God can help you with these issues and questions?
Why is this happening?
Where is God in this situation?
Why do I feel so empty?
What is my purpose?
Why do I struggle so much in my relationships?
How do I get closer to God?
The purpose of spiritual direction is to help one find God in all things and in all moments to answer these questions and achieve the shalom peace of God taught through Biblical principles of faith.
God’s intention for each of us is a plan that includes among other things spiritual rest or inner peace. The world is chaotic, destructive, stressful, and painful. The pressures, pain, and problems steal our peace, our joy, our fulfillment, and our love. To find the peace that surpasses all understanding the Bible speaks of, we must be in communion with God. We must follow His path.
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” -Jesus
So many Christians struggle to find the abundant life God called them to. Though they have faith in Jesus Christ, they continue to struggle relationally, financially, emotionally, and spiritually. They never find God’s rest. They never find His abundant plan for their life.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is —his good, pleasing and perfect will. (NIV)
As your spiritual director, I will work with you in the process of transformation to teach you how to think differently and thus, act differently to produce different results in all of these areas. I will walk with you along your journey to find God, His plan, and His peace for your life. The lessons you learn along the way will be transferable as you teach your children, your grandchildren, family members, and some friends along the way.
