It is never to late to begin with God. Everyone can experience sadness, depression, tragedy, or trauma. Believing in Jesus Christ does not exempt anyone from these things, however, God desires that you live a whole, joyful life.
God is not mad at you! His desire is for you to be fully engaged in your life, enjoying it daily. If you are struggling with faith, God’s character or His will for your life — there is hope. It is possible to overcome fear, doubt and unbelief and experience living in the identity Christ has given you.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11. NIV
The Bible is God’s Word. God’s Word contains the answers to every problem in life. Living Waters is dedicated to providing professional counseling services with a faith-based perspective.
We are believers in Jesus Christ. We believe that healing and wholeness stems from having a relationship with Jesus. A personal walk with the Lord is a priority in life. Within all counseling sessions, a spiritual perspective is offered upon request.
Living Waters offers a special place of safety and confidentiality to those in leadership positions within the faith community. When you’re the one building everyone up, teaching, and motivating – who takes care of you? You’re human, have struggles and can experience the same emotions, fears and doubts as others. Many spiritual leaders fear sharing due to thoughts like: “If I share, will it hurt them? Will I cause them to stumble?” “How can I teach after revealing such intimate issues? If I’m struggling with ________, I can’t let anyone know or I’ll lose my position.” But what happens when you need to process through personal issues, couple/family conflicts? The struggles that you face as being a part of spiritual leadership include: isolation, aloneness, deep hurt, feeling like a hypocrite, disillusionment and burnout, just to name a few. Many pastor’s and their wives feel there is no one to “let down and be real” with – especially if that includes sharing doubts, fears, hurts and disappointments. You can reach out here and I’ll listen, pray with you, for you and here you’ll find no judgement or betrayal.
Some of the same struggles hold true for congregational members who are not in leadership. Sometimes members are hurt by leadership. With Biblical principles, those hurts can be addressed here.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18.
