Jesus and Therapy…it’s okay to Seek Both

“The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.” Proverbs 20:5 NIV

There are so many struggling with issues of life, but there is one who can deliver you from them all. His name is Jesus. Some issues of life need only Jesus, but there are some issues of life a person may be struggling that will need Jesus AND therapy.

There is nothing wrong with getting extra help by seeing a therapist. Some of us have been taught that if we seek therapy, we must be crazy. Or we don’t have faith in God. So far from the truth because it takes faith and courage to even see a therapist. And plus there are many therapies for different ailments. One of them could work for you, but if you don’t try to see if it works, you will never know. And you will continue to suffer in silence.

My opinion, I think some people don’t seek therapy because therapy makes them talk. Therapy makes them seek truth. Therapy makes them face their fears. Therapy also gives insight and understanding in things they wouldn’t see otherwise.

I want to encourage you to not be afraid to have both Jesus and therapy. They are both bonuses to help you live a better life in peace, love, and joy.
