Ways to practice spiritual self-care.
I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. 1 Timothy 2:8
Our church family can play a role in our spiritual self-care because God gifts us with people to talk to when:
-we come across a part of the Bible we are trying to understand
-we feel God is calling us to a certain task
-we need Godly counsel and prayer.
As we pray, study God’s Word, and sing praise songs, our anxiety, stress, and depression levels are lowered because our focus is on Christ who is always in control of our circumstances rather than focusing on our problems and difficulties.
Through prayer, Biblical promises, and songs, feelings of being overwhelmed or crushed by the weight of the cares of this world can be traded in for joyous, victorious, abundant life as we cast all our cares upon the One who cares for us.
