Christian Counseling in Cambridge, MA—Christian Counselors and Therapists

While it might be difficult to admit, there are instances in which sustaining one’s strong Christian values is challenging. If you’re being honest with yourself, you can probably admit this to be true, but it’s still perplexing, nonetheless. I mean, think about it: You devote so much time and energy into building a resilient relationship with God, as well as strong relationships with your loved ones, but sometimes that means moving your personal needs to the wayside. Life becomes so busy, so demanding that you forget to dedicate this important time to your faith.

While other worldviews lead us to sit in the midst of life’s joys, foreseeing the coming sorrows, Christianity empowers its people  to sit in the midst of this world’s sorrows, tasting the coming joy. –Timothy Keller
