MENTAL HEALTH

Jesus cares about your mental health, and we do too.

 

As we preach and talk about serious life subjects, we might uncover some wounds and struggles. This is good! We don’t want to be Christians who pretend everything is alright, but Christians who attend to what’s going on in our minds because Jesus said, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matthew 22:37).

Below, we've posted some resources to help with your journey.

RESOURCES

Prayer

Sometimes it helps to talk about it with God and with faithful Christians who will pray for you. You can get started here or you can visit our prayer page for more information about prayer at New Spirit.

Bible

The Scriptures reveal that God cares a lot about our mental health. You can see this in the Psalms.

Here are some Bible studies we recommend:

7 Things The Bible Says About Anxiety

Dealing with Uncertainty

Making Time to Rest

Wisdom for Mental Health

Groups

You are not meant to do this alone! New Spirit groups are here to care for you (1 Cor 12:25), encourage you (Heb 3:13), and help bear your burdens (Gal 6:2). 

Counseling

We're big fans of many forms of counseling. All things being equal, we recommend choosing a counselor who is Christian, but we recognize there are secular counselors who do incredible therapy. We also recognize that it's difficult to find a counselor these days, so we've compiled some great advice from a professional counselor about how to find a counselor and get into therapy as quick as possible.
