Emotional wellness, spiritual maturity, and physical health go hand in hand. Never mind what we say we believe. If God’s Word doesn’t “feel” true in the depths of our heart, how can we ever hope to heal and mature in Christ? Any area of our life that is not in agreement with His Word begs to be explored. Our souls need to be weeded and well watered in order to flourish in our faith.
We tend to see God, ourselves, people, and life’s circumstances through the lenses of our experiences and beliefs, be they wonderful or wounding, truth or lie. Most of us would rather the Holy Spirit wave a magic wand and make all our hurts disappear. Or have the Lord sweep the sin and shame out of our lives with with a holy broom so we don’t have to look at it anymore. But what benefit is there in that? We are much better off knowing why we are who we are, and what we have come to believe, so we can become an emotionally whole, spiritually mature, and physically well version of ourselves. More like the woman God created us to be.
In prayer counseling, women are carried to the Father and counseled by the Wonderful Counselor — the only One that can do a wondrous, miraculous work in the heart. He is the ultimate therapist. The Holy Spirit knows us so thoroughly, so intimately, better than we know ourselves.
Healing that takes place in the context of prayer and biblical discipleship leads to transformational freedom. As the Lord supernaturally connects the dots between past and present struggles, attunes our ear to His voice, affirms it with His Word, and clarifies who is actually speaking into our lives, we get to the “spiritual root” of our issues and diseases. Using Spirit-led prayer, we wait like Habakkuk to see how the Lord will answer each complaint and write the revelation down.
This is not your ordinary counseling appointment. Extraordinary things happen in the presence of an extraordinary God. With each session, women are taught to uproot lies and deposit truth, allowing the Lord to change their perspective in order to reclaim the broken pieces of their heart that sin, shame and the enemy have stolen from them. These personal encounters help us to understand why we feel what we feel, believe what we believe, and are who we are. When you reclaim your heart, you reclaim your life. It would be an honor to carry you to the altar. There is no better time to start your journey toward wellness in Christ, than now.

I left with peace and healing right away.”
