The war for our own emotional healing can be harrowing but it’s critical to our spiritual wholeness. Just because we’re Christian doesn’t mean we’re healthy.
If broken hearts can break spirits, then the reverse must also be true: when you are emotionally healthy you are more powerful spiritually. That’s why I believe that the work Christians do in the therapy room has a divine purpose. Your emotions are important. God truly cares about how you feel.
We live in a culture that has set us up to put our best face forward. A culture that deceives us into believing that the better we appear, the better we are. But just because we seem to have it together on the outside doesn’t mean that we have it together on the inside. And just because we’ve come to Jesus at some point in our journey doesn’t mean we’ve magically achieved perfection. We need to stop assuming health and start pursuing health, living intentionally toward health on every level. (Fileta)
God longs to hear our prayers, and he longs to heal our hearts. Prayer is a powerful weapon, and therapy can be an excellent strategy as you walk with God, tending to the pain of your past, and trusting His presence with you for the future. (Philipps)
