“Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisors they succeed.” Proverbs 15:22
There are times when we need ideas and additional insight to draw us deeper into our relationship with God. Spiritual Life Coaching seeks to assist to fill this need by strengthening our faith an enhancing our understanding of how God is calling us on our life journey…
“And there was evening and then there was morning – the first day.” Genesis 1:5
First there was evening and then night.
So it is in our relationship with God, according to St. John of the Cross in The Dark Night of the Soul. Our first encounters with God are often full of sun and daylight. As the daylight wanes and progresses towards evening and, finally, to darkness, we find ourselves squinting to try to see the image of God, the image which had been so clear. We may think that something is wrong inside ourselves. We may think that something is wrong with our understanding of God. We may even think He has abandoned us, that He does not care about us any longer, or that we are no longer interesting to Him.
This new experience may actually be a new place where God–in His compassion and desire for our soul–is leading us. As St. John of the Cross describes, “He has not abandoned us, but in fact is as present as ever, and may very well be drawing us closer and towards a deeper calling and towards a more intimate relationship with Him.”
At these trying points in our lives, God may be calling us to be children no longer and calling us to grow up.
“As far as trials go, the more the better!”
St. John of the Cross
This website is about change.
It’s about spiritual growth. It’s an attempt to peel back some of the mystery of where God is working in our lives to promote spiritual health and strength. This website is about increasing our understanding of how God works. It’s about directing us to resources within our churches and our own Christian experiences.
I am here in this attempt to assist and coach spiritually by using experiences from my own walk and learning to enhance the journeys of those that are seeking strength and a deeper relationship with God.
“When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. But when I grew up, I gave up childish ways.” –I Corinthians 13:1
The concept of light through the darkness exemplifies the soul’s journey through the night–the soul’s negotiation of the night–to God.
