Self Care

advent-combat-spiritual-burnout

Spiritual Burnout is a devastating experience but it can be especially bad around the Holidays, and you may not even know you have it!

Entering the holidays almost always fills us with a mutual sense of excitement and dread. Excitement at the thought of having some time off and enjoying all the sparkly and delicious things we love. It fills us with hopes and expectations of the ideal ways things could go in our minds, but dread at the knowledge that so often we spend every last ounce of our energy trying to realize our perfect dream, but, at the end of the day, nothing really changes and every year we seem to come out of this season “of rest” even more exhausted than before.

Endurance, Self Care, When life is Hard

Is Self-Care compatible with Christian “Death-to-Self”?

Is Self-Care compatible with Christian Death-to-Self?  This question is especially important in a culture where self-care is preached as the solution to every problem and depression is still at an all time high.  Are we just not doing enough “self-care”? Or could dying-to-self actually be the solution to life?

“Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.  For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” – Matthew 16:24-25

Endurance, Self Care

To the Soul Suffering from Marital Loneliness

You know you’ve experienced it… Marital loneliness…

…that ache of feeling unequally yoked? of missing the “friend” you used to have? Or, wondering what happened to the person you thought you married?

But, it’s not because they are gone that you miss them, but rather, and even most especially, when you are in the same room, and living under the same roof!
