It is not possible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature.
The Blessings and Sins of Our Families Have Impact Lasting for at Least Three to Four Generations...Discipleship is the Process of Putting Off the Sinful Patterns of Our Family of Origin and Culture, and Re-Learning How to Do Life in God’s Family.
Healthy differentiation is remaining connected to people and yet not having your reaction or behavior determined by them. My primary task, like Jesus, is to calmly differentiate my “true self” from the demands and voices around me, discerning the desires, vision, pace, and mission the Father has given me.
Pathways to an emotionally healthy spirituality:
- 1.KnowYourself that You May Know God
- Going Back in Order to Go Forward
- Journey Through the Wall
- Enlarge Your Soul Through Grief and Loss (Pray the Psalms)
- Discover the Rhythms of the Daily Office and Sabbath
- Grow into an Emotionally Mature Adult
- Go the Next Step to Develop a “Rule of Life.”
