68: Transformation Story: How Kelly Moved Her Faith from Her Head to Her Heart

Ever felt like your relationship with God was like checking a box? That your connection with God was in your head but not in your heart? Maybe you been told “God loves you” and “God is in control,” but Christian truths ring hollow in your heart and God feels far away, even though you go to church and do all “right things” to connect with God.
Today on the podcast I’m sharing a conversation with Kelly –a coaching client of mine and a member of our Connected Bible Community— and how she, in just 3 months, has taken her faith, as she puts it “from her head to her heart.”
God feels far away | faith like checking a box | Connection with God | knowing God | spiritual growth | no more religion | relationship not religion | how to connect with God | connect with God | know Christ | relationship with Jesus | personal relationship with God | quiet time | grow closer to God | faith in my heart | What to do when you don’t feel God | When you don’t feel god | God feels far away | where is God |overcoming spiritual doubt | faith over feelings | losing my faith | when you can’t feel god | why can’t I feel God | why don’t I feel God | when we don’t feel God’s presence | how to feel closer to God | why don’t I feel connected to God | how to feel God’s presence | books of the Bible to read when you feel lost | god I feel lost
We want our spiritual connection with God to be honest and heartfelt. At the end of the day, we don’t want religion or rules—we want a relationship with God that transforms us. 
We don't want God to feel far away. We’re born with a desire to know and to be known in an authentic way, and we have the privilege of experiencing that in Christ.
Kelly's spiritual growth testimony is a powerful example of what happens when we ask, “What are those hidden spiritual growth obstacles that keep me from growing closer to God?” (and we're bold enough to confront them and to find healing).
I’m so excited to share Kelly’s story with you and for you to hear about the amazing spiritual growth so you too can be encouraged to create a spiritual connection with Christ that is more than checking a box, but a life-giving relationship that transforms you from the inside out!
