If you find yourself on this step, you may be feeling stuck spiritually. You may feel like you’ve hit a wall. Oftentimes we stall because of some grief, disappointment, or quite simply, what we’ve been doing to grow in Christ isn’t working anymore. You can take steps to get past this blockage, to survive this excruciating experience in order to live out your heart’s deepest desire.
1. Emotionally Healthy Discipleship
Emotionally Health Discipleship is comprised of two courses that are independent of themselves: Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (EHS) and Emotionally Healthy Relationships (EHS).
Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (EHS) underscores the reality that emotional health and spiritual maturity are inseparable. EHS will help you better understand the things that stunt or stop spiritual growth in your life and expose you to rhythms of living that help you break through the wall and deepen your relationship with Christ in the context of community.
We hear about loving better, but few of us have learned the skills or gained the competency to love well. In Emotionally Healthy Relationships (EHR) you'll be exposed to core biblical principles that give you practical relationship skills to develop mature, loving relationships with others. And since loving others and loving God cannot be separated, you will also grow in your personal, first-hand relationship with Jesus by incorporating stillness, silence, and Scripture as daily life rhythms.
2. Service (to and through the church)
Meet with a spiritual leader for deeper discernment. Meeting with a pastor, spiritual leader or director can help give you the right questions to ask as you discern next steps in growth and leadership.
