Timeline PhotosQ: Looking for an Outstanding Christian Marriage Counselor?
A professional counselor who is also a Christian is quite different from a Christian Marriage Counselor. Some professionals will label their services as “Christian” so as to seem more appealing to couples who are in search of Christian marriage therapy. However, they approach counseling from a professional point of view but not necessarily from a biblical point of view.
There are many segments and divisions within Christianity, so be sure that the marriage therapist understands your particular religious persuasion and, as much as possible, shares your values and priorities.
The church you attend is a great starting place for your journey in finding the most effective Christian marriage therapy for you.
Some people are reluctant to seek marriage therapy from a marriage counselor or pastor they know because they prefer to keep the matter private between the two spouses. But it’s likely that the people closest to them, and friends at church, already suspect they are having marriage trouble.
A: Start with your pastor.
* Most pastors have some training in marriage counseling.
* Your pastoral staff may offer marriage counseling as a service of your local church.
* Your pastor can refer you to a Christian marriage counselor in your area.
Choose someone who considers your faith as the foundation of their Christian counseling. This is crucial to couples with strong Christian faith.
Choose only the best.
Stop at nothing until you get the best service. ... MoreLess
Timeline PhotosEven the most optimistic individuals can find themselves in situations where unhealthy doses of fear and anxiety paralyze them.
Here are a couple tips to help attack the imbalanced fears in your life:
1) Replace Fearful Thoughts with Positive Ones
Many of us are prone to negative self-talk. We are constantly scaring ourselves with fearful thoughts and imagined outcomes that make reality feel a lot worse than it actually is.
To free yourself from paralyzing fear, you must identify the thoughts and self-talk that make you feel anxious, afraid and stuck - and then start replacing them with positive alternatives.
Choose to remind yourself of the facts.
Choose to challenge fearful thoughts with positive, fearless statements. For instance, replace the thought of “What if I fail?” with “What if I succeed?” This simple shift of focus will lead you in a healthier direction that takes you to a much better place in your life.
2) Go Into Action
Action is the best cure for paralyzing fear and anxiety!
Focus on the present and figure out what you need to do right now.
Figure out what the next step is and DO it as this creates the motivation you seek.
When the end goal seems insurmountable and overwhelming, making you feel afraid and stressed, choose to see what lies beyond the mountainous, seemingly unconquerable obstacle.
You can choose to gaze at defeat – on the overwhelming thing that’s stopping you… OR you may choose to focus on the victory – life beyond the obstacle.
Focus on the positive outcome – on all of the great things that will result from your conquering the fearful giant that’s paralyzing you and filling your heart with terror.
Then break down the end goal into small, manageable tasks. This builds confidence and creates sustainable momentum.
Empowerment isn’t something someone gives you: it’s what you give yourself. So why wait for someone to remove your fear(s) when you can start slaying your own giants right now? ... MoreLess
