In today’s episode, I want to look at 4 myths you may still believe about mental health, and offer an integrative perspective that may help us to advance both the gospel and our emotional stewardship.
Myth 1: Christians Should Not Struggle with Emotional Distress
Myth 2: Mental Health Is Not Mentioned in Scripture
Myth 3: Feelings Don’t Matter to God
Myth 4: Distress Is a Form of Spiritual Immaturity
Here is what we know: Our feelings matter to God; we can have faith despite fears and; support is available to us through God’s work in and through the lives of helping professionals and our Church community. My hope is that we, as a generation of believers, can step out and start talking about how we actually feel, without fear of rejection or judgment. I pray that we will continue to dispute the lies our culture has adopted, learn to listen well, acknowledging the pain experienced by those around us, and press on, heavenward.
Join me next week with a special guest, Jen Robinson Gueren, LPC, we will be discussing the top 10 reasons to go to therapy!
