Healing is a process. Along the way I have encountered many tools God put in my path to further my healing and live life in His freedom. I have and still use many of these resources.
*These are personal to me. Your journey may look different–and that’s ok. (some of these have links to lead you to more info)
Therapy~ A professional counselor who sits in an objective place to help and guide in doing the hard work of healing.
Write~ Whether alone or in a safe group, honest and vulnerable writing is important to fully process. Intentional time for emotions of a tender heart and swirling mind to unfold as pen bleeds on paper.
Community~ People to walk the journey with you. Hand in Hand. Side by side. Willing to carry your heart when need be. Safe people. Life-giving people. Grace-giving people. I have many whom I connect with at my home church, but also around the world via Facebook.
Art~ Therapeutic art. Not to create a masterpiece, but to transform into the masterpiece you’ve always been–in full color.
Solitude~ specific time set aside away from the normal rountine and sounds of life to refresh and renew one’s spirit.
Desert Stream Ministries~ A world-wide Christan ministry specific to liberating those bound by sexual and relational brokenness.
Attacking Anxiety & Depression~ Midwest Center for Stress specializes in retraining and renewing the mind from obsessive thinking, dark thoughts, negative self thoughts, and other anxiety and depression issues.
Soaking~ Simply “being” while soaking in the goodness of God through soul stirring music selections.
