Why does your life keep falling apart? Why do you keep making mistakes and poor choices? Maybe it's a loved one that just can't ever seem to get it together and you weep for them often and are continually frustrated. You don’t know what to do to help. It seems that someone has written this script called "Life" and you would do anything to get your hands on it.
As we go through trials, we hear those useless platitudes and pick-me-up lines and when we do, we feel like someone just handed us a tool that we either don't understand or have very little use for. Those well-meaning people may not be aware that we don't want to be "picked up" --- We want clarity. Clarity as to: Why this keeps happening? Why can't we ever seem to make our lives work? Why do we keep making bad decisions? What's wrong with the world?
Maybe you struggle with depression over how your life has turned out. You didn't know it would all come to this. You expected a John Hughes movie --- a "happily ever after". You wanted the kind of life someone would write a book about. Well we have news for you...
Someone already did.
At Wood Christian Counseling we are convinced that the main reason people fumble through life, lose hope and stay confused is they don't realize they are already a part of a story. A really good story. One that has a glorious ending. Being able to handle life's struggles and navigate this often tumultuous and crippling terrain that we call life, is all about knowing this grand narrative and seeing our purpose in it. Until we do, we will continue to trip and loose our handle on everything from our family to our jobs, simply because we are trying to assemble a complex puzzle in the dark. Instead of living our lives as a part of this beautiful drama, we try to write our own and it doesn't work. Tom Wolfe - American author and journalist put it this way:
“Everybody, everybody everywhere, has his own movie going, his own scenario, and everybody is acting his movie out like mad, only most people don’t know that is what they’re trapped by, their little script.”
It doesn't have to be this way!
You are already a part of a wonderful journey.
You are a part of God’s script - His design. He has given us resources that help keep us in His well-lite path. One is the Bible. Yea, that big, dusty, intimidating book that just keeps sitting on your coffee table staring at you every day. It is not just any book, it is where this story is told. Inside lies the answers to life's most perplexing questions.
But not only that, he has also given us counselors. They are those who know the story well and have committed their lives to helping people like yourself keep stay focused on the big picture and helping you assess the smaller things with a new perspective. They work with you to help you walk with confidence, so there is no need to feel overwhelmed and defeated.
Oh yes, and there is even a better help than these! The Author (the one who wrote this grand saga) isn't dead, but alive! He is among us and still speaks. He has promised to help us and remind us of his story and our part in it. Are you listening? Maybe you aren't sure how? It is easier than you might think and no, you don't have to be some spiritual guru to do it. Let us help.
So what are you waiting for? What could be more important than knowing how to live your life? Stop the aimless wandering and contact us today.
We want to tell you a story - your story. You do not have to walk in the dark again.
