One reason it is helpful to see a counselor or work with a coach or pair up with an accountability partner at church is that we often get locked into one way of seeing things and we don’t even realize there are other choices. One example is how we often see limitations where they don’t exist – because we look at life with a limited, earthly perspective rather than an eternal, spiritual perspective.
We always have the choice to see things differently, and often that frees us up to take action in a situation where we feel stuck, or to extend forgiveness where we might have been holding onto anger. But it’s easier to maintain our faith and our perspective if we have other people in our lives to help.
No need to walk alone or live in frustration. God’s view offers renewal and hope. It’s all about perspective.
God goes with me wherever I go;
My home is wherever I am.
Actually, “luck” is not something I believe in, but when hooked with 13, it makes a good catchphrase. I’m excited about this year. I feel a new energy and am ready to move forward in life.
Are you open to seeing possibilities wherever you go?
For me, 2012 was a year of deep healing. I’m calling ’13 “The Year of Infinite Possibilities!” That might seem far off to some of you, especially if you’ve come here during a time when your addict is active or your discovery of addiction in your family is new. But I promise you that healing is available to you and yours.
I’ve signed up for a Christian Life Coaching Certificate program. I’m very excited about this…an effort on my part to grow who I am with a goal of helping others as well.
A blessing for you all as we enter a new year together: May God bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May He lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace. Amen.
