Welcome to the DEC 2020 Redeemer Counseling Update by It Is Well Living Church. In this update, we will delve into the topic of holding loss and finding healing through our faith and beliefs.

The Impact of Loss

Loss is an inevitable part of life that affects us all. It can come in many forms, such as the loss of a loved one, a job, a relationship, or even the loss of a sense of security. Dealing with loss can be incredibly challenging and overwhelming, often leaving us feeling lost, confused, and in pain.

Understanding Grief

Grief is a natural response to loss, a complex range of emotions that can involve sorrow, anger, guilt, and even relief. It is important to recognize that grief is a personal and unique experience, and each individual may experience it differently. It is a process that takes time and cannot be rushed.

Healing Through Faith and Beliefs

At It Is Well Living Church, we believe that faith and beliefs play a crucial role in finding healing and strength in times of loss. Our faith provides us with a source of comfort, hope, and guidance during difficult times. It offers us the opportunity to seek solace, connect with a higher power, and find meaning in our pain.

Strategies for Holding Loss and Finding Healing

1. Acknowledge Your Emotions

One of the first steps towards finding healing is acknowledging and accepting your emotions. Allow yourself to feel and express your grief, without judgment or restraint. Embracing your emotions can help you process them and begin to heal.

2. Seek Support

Surrounding yourself with a supportive community can make a significant difference in your healing journey. It Is Well Living Church offers counseling services and support groups tailored to help individuals navigate through loss, providing a safe and compassionate space for you to share, learn, and heal.

3. Practice Self-Care

Take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Engage in activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Dedicate time to activities such as meditation, prayer, or yoga, which can help calm your mind, reduce stress, and promote overall well-being.

4. Embrace Faith

Draw strength from your faith and beliefs. Connect with your spirituality through prayer, attending religious services, or engaging in meaningful rituals. Reflect on the teachings and principles that resonate with you and apply them as a source of guidance and comfort.

5. Seek Professional Guidance

When dealing with profound loss, it can be beneficial to seek professional guidance from qualified counselors or therapists. They can provide valuable insights and tools to help you navigate through your grief and find healing.
