What in the world is spiritual direction?
Well first, the term ‘direction’ is a misnomer. In spiritual direction, my role is to not to direct you, but to help you feel clearly directed by God. There are times in our lives where it is hard to discern what God is saying to us. There is a lot of noise, clutter, and distraction. It can be difficult to filter through this noise on your own. You also may not feel comfortable sharing the extent of your troubles with those you know.
You may have already done therapy or feel you are not in need of it, but you still find yourself struggling with persistent concerns and want out of the cycle you are in. As your spiritual director, I help you by creating a calm space for you to share what troubles you. We then pray and listen together for the Holy Spirits promptings. Through this experience, you are able to get revelation, resolution, or restore your peace of mind.
Matthew 18:20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
James 5:16 Confess your sins* to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.
*Yes I put an asterisk in the middle of a bible verse. #bold I don’t ascribe to a condemning definition of sin. I know sin to be any lies we believe or act out of that keeps us from experiencing the depth of God’s love for us.
