Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest – Matthew 11:28.

Life can be hard, and sometimes, we need someone to listen to what’s on our hearts and minds. Talking with people you can trust will enable you to release stress and loneliness.

As Christian women, we should make ourselves available for others to come to us with their concerns without telling anyone else what they told us. Sadly, to say, the church is full of women who are hurting emotionally and mentally.

We may not be professional counselors according to the world’s standards, but we have something better than a degree. We have the Spirit of the Living God living within our beings, and He will do the counseling and ministering through us.

A lot of the dysfunction in the church is not because of nonbelievers bringing it into the church; the dysfunction comes within the walls of the church because of hurting people. Hurting people will hurt others if they are not delivered from emotional sins and worldly actions.

Our behavior should be so much like Christ that both the believers and nonbelievers can approach us to get the counseling they need. We are our sister’s keepers, and we should make ourselves available in praying, staying in close connection with God so that when one of our sisters, whether in the church or our place of employment, the Spirit of the Lord will inform us what to pray for.

Our spirit must be connected to the Spirit of God. He does not correspond with us through our flesh but our spirit. If our spirit is corrupted, double-minded, fearful, or holding to offensive or unforgiveness, we can’t hear what the Spirit is saying to our spirit.

When you pray, be sensitive to what the Lord is showing you; sometimes, He will show you an individual or a circumstance; this is what you pray for as He reveals it to you. He does not always speak in an audible voice.

As the body of Christ, let us show love towards one another; don’t walk past a sister and ignore them. Show yourself friendly and approachable. God is just as concerned about how you treat others as He is about your salvation.

Find someone you can talk to, and don’t hold the hurt, concern, or anxiety to yourself; this is what the Adversary wants you to do. He doesn’t want you to be set free; he wants you to hold on to it so that he continues to add other feelings to you until he breaks you down.

Another way you can release your feelings is journaling; this way, you can write down exactly what you’re feeling each day or throughout the day. As you journal, you’re releasing emotions that will free you. Always have your spirit free to hear what the Lord is saying to you about yourself and others. Jesus came to set us free in every area of our lives.
