You’re trying to make sense of it all…
For whatever reason, you’ve found yourself out of ministry; perhaps by force, perhaps by choice, perhaps by divorce, retirement, or maybe even death of your spouse. However you find yourself in this place, the wounds and confusion of it all invade every space of your heart. It is difficult to begin to think and imagine what life could be like from here forward.
Did God abandon you? What does He want from you now?
There is hope for you, too.
Healing and joy will come. Let’s work together on this healing journey.
What if this deep hurt is your invitation to the very heart of God?
Right now you may be in need of a million things, but the one thing that matters most is FINDING HOPE.
Hope deferred makes a heart sick.Proverbs 13:12a
As a former pastor’s wife myself, I have walked the path of healing from a forced termination. I have sat numb, cried ugly cry-session tears, and angrily trashed my surroundings as I raged at God. He took our lives and turned them upside down – and without our permission. How dare He?!
Heart wounds are like physical wounds, without attending to them, they fester and become infected. This leads to infections of relationships and our own physical body. In coaching, you’ll begin to untangle your shattered dreams and begin to turn towards Jesus to heal the wounds within. You’ll learn how to clean and dress the wound, and you’ll begin to experience healing through the power of God’s Word and the safety of a knowledgeable trauma-informed coach.
“Sorrow took up permanent residence in my soul and enlarged it.”
~ Peter Scazzero
