God’s timing is a mystery and after a experiencing a long season of suffering, suddenly my circumstances changed when God connected me to Michael Armfield, a spirit-filled, life coach whose skilled advice is guiding me toward restoration.
My story is not unique. Like many women, I was emotionally ravaged by a one-sided divorce that ended a 20 year marriage. Consequently, I suffered, having a “good day” followed by “bad days”. I have spent the better part of ten years trying to reconcile my shattered self-image and regain a sense of self-worth. Recently, I reached a tipping point and, finally fed up with the dead-end, deja-vu cycle of self-loathing, over-eating and persistently negative mind-set, I finally realized that I was poisoning my very own existence and God-given potentiality.
My negative view of my world and failure to move on with life has exhausted the emotions of all my dear family members and closest friends. My children encouraged me to seek council, which I resisted because I wanted GOD to fix my emotions, finances and waistline. Recently, I began counseling with Michael and, as a result of his astute advice and weekly “homework”, I am finally walking through the graveyard of my past instead of living there day-to-day. His wise counsel and guidance have created a much-needed positive shift in my negative view of the world. I am experiencing the lifting of a mighty burden and starting to live in the NOW. Gratefully, I am recognizing the slow but certain healing of my mind, will and emotions. Sending heartfelt thanks to Michael and Gateway Counseling.
