  • How to be an emotionally Healthy ChristianTHE EMOTIONALLY HEALTHY CHURCH TEXT: 1 Samuel 15:20- 16:4 & Psalm 51
  • Ten Symptoms of poor emotional health (1)1. Using God to run from God (e.g. applying Scripture selectively to suit my own purposes, not me doing God’s will.2. Ignoring the emotions of anger, sadness, and fear (e.g. denial about the feelings, hurts & pains beneath the surface)3. Dying to the wrong things (e.g. denying healthy, God-given desires and pleasures of life (friendships, joy, music, beauty, laughter, nature) while finding it difficult to die to my self- protectiveness, defensiveness, and judgmentalism).4. Denying the past’s impact on the present (e.g. not considering how my family of origin & significant people events from my past have shaped my present).5. Living without limits (e.g. “trying to do it all” or “bite off more than I can chew”).
  • Ten Symptoms of pooremotional health (2)6. Dividing life into “secular” and “sacred” compartments (e.g. compartmentalizing God to “Christian activities” while usually forgetting about him when I am working, shopping, studying or recreating).7. Doing for God instead of being with God (e.g. evaluating my spirituality based on how much I am doing for God).8. Spiritualizing away conflict (e.g. Missing out on true peace by smoothing over disagreements, burying tensions and avoiding conflict – rather than disrupting the false peace like Jesus).9. Covering over brokenness, weakness, and failure (e.g. not speaking freely about my weaknesses, failures and mistakes).10. Judging the spiritual journeys of others (e.g. finding myself occupied and bothered by the faults of others).
