Soul Struggle

Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, fear, anger?

Within the soul of each one of us lies a deep longing. This is a longing for connection—for intimacy. We may try to fill our longing with many things. However, our primary desire is for relationship. When our relationships don’t seem to fill that longing,  our soul begins to struggle.

We try to find answers. We try to discover how to build better relationships with our spouse, our children, friends, etc. But we are often disappointed because what we thought would bring us deep satisfaction, doesn’t! When this happens, we may move into feelings of depression, anxiety, or fear. Or we may find ourselves feeling like everyone else runs our life but us! We may become co-dependent.

Soul Struggle Issues:

  • Depression
  • Trusting
  • Fear
  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Deep disappointment
  • Past hurts and/or abuse

What are your struggles?

At the core of each of these struggles, we carry within us a belief about ourselves, God, and life. If there is an inaccurate belief in any one of these areas, we will be in soul struggle.

Ultimately at the core of this struggle is God. God is deeply longing for relationship with you. He is pursuing you! He is disturbing your soul!

This is The Soul Struggle.

Soul Struggle Resolution

How do we resolve this soul struggle? How do we find that intimacy with God? Do you long to  experience God’s deep love and presence? It is important to gain understanding of the main issues we all deal with in this struggle through life. Discovery of one’s beliefs about self, God, and the world, can open the door to truth which results in changed thinking and, therefore, new behaviors. This process of being changed moves you toward experiencing a new intimacy with the God your hearts long for.

As a gifted speaker and counselor, Janet walks her listeners through these issues as she aids them in their pursuit of moving toward intimacy with Go
