The Why of Life

Can you identify a moment when your life was forever changed? Maybe the day you met your life partner or the moment … (you fill in the blank).

For me, it was the day I became serious about finding the answers to questions like these, “Why do I feel anxious about so many things? Why can’t I control my emotions? Why do I want to stay in bed and pull the covers up over my head? Why do I keep doing the things I don’t want to do? Why do I think this way when it’s so destructive to my relationships?”

These are serious questions and worthy of finding answers. Questions like these force us to stop and self-reflect on the “why’s” of life, which means we have to find the reasons or purpose of our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Leading us back to painful experiences that were not processed healthily. Or leading us to lies, we believe about ourselves, God, and others. Self-reflection is very important, and asking the “why” of life brings transformation.

Knowing who I am, why I do what I do, how my past shaped me but cannot keep me captive is empowering—a life-changer. My heart breaks as I hear of many people struggling with the same questions that enslaved me. These same questions are holding them captive to dysfunctional thinking, feeling, and acting.

The picture attached to this blog post is your starting point. It was mine. Brave Enough is powerful. As a pastor, a biblical counselor, and someone just like you, it would be wrong to not extend to you an invitation to experience healing and freedom!

I will be leading a Brave Enough group this month! If you are interested in joining me and would like more information, click the link and let me know by completing the form.

I look forward to hearing from you!
