Do you ever wonder why your relationship feels challenging, no matter what you do? This feeling was a constant for me for many years. I would attempt to engage in a meaningful relationship only to sabotage it with my own thoughts and behavior. I was reminded of the word that reads in Galatians 6:7, “A man reaps what he sows.”
What I’ve learned in life is that whatever you do to others will certainly come back to you in one form or another! First, let me share with you that I am not an expert in relationships by societal norms, but I can attest to how bad relationships can affect you. It is because of my experiences that I decided to pin this book as a reality check for someone who may think that they are slicker than the next person and has the relationship “game” on lock.
Relationships are a vital part of each of our lives, and without guidance from the Holy Spirit, we can do damage to ourselves and those connected to us. I invite you to embrace these useful keys that I have realized during my journey that will benefit you in your current or next relationship.
As a way of empowering God’s people, be on the lookout for my next book release, The Seeds I’ve Sown in June 2018.
Do you have a counselor? Whether it’s sports, career, marriage or life in general, the role of a counselor is a necessary component for success! I spoke with a few individuals this weekend about relationships and the necessity of getting some guidance to help them succeed and the response more often than not was, “We don’t need a counselor.”. My question today is, “What are you afraid of?”.
What I’ve experienced in the counseling field is that people are apprehensive of seeking counseling for several reasons:
Not willing to deal with their reality
Exposing hidden truths
Lack of coping tools
Lack of understanding
Why do you go to the doctor? You go because something is physically not right with your body. It is that same reason that you should seek out a trusted professional to aid you when your life is out of alignment. I gained so much insight about myself during my studies in Temperament Counseling that I’ve become a Licensed Counselor. The benefits is brought not just to me but my marriage, my relationship with my children and even my career path has been greatly impacted by receiving the truth concerning my inborn and how God created me to cope.
Today, I want to challenge you to seek out the help that you need for any area of your life that you may be struggling in. Anything that you’re facing at this moment should not keep you captive from moving forward and being a success. Stop being afraid of the unknown; find a trusted counselor, face your situation, develop a strategy for change, and EMPOWER yourself to succeed!
