Center for Spiritual Renewal

Testimonies

 

Since we began offering spiritual direction, hundreds upon hundreds of people have experienced either individual or group spiritual direction through the ministry of the CSR.  We find that time and again, people who experience spiritual direction come away feeling blessed and describing positive developments in their relationship with God, including some of the following feedback:

“[Spiritual direction] has dramatically changed my relationship with God. I have gained a new understanding of his infinite love for me and his limitless grace.  My prayer time feels more intimate.”

– Biola Undergrad

“This experience has helped me to take steps toward healing and growth in my relationship with God and in my life/heart.  It allowed me to begin to explore what it means and how to be vulnerable with God.  It exposed my fears and helped me begin to work through them.”

– Biola Undergrad

“I have grown in my sensitivity to the Spirit and my ability to discern God’s voice. I have come to a new awareness of his presence in my life. As I have drawn nearer to God, day by day, moment by moment, He has drawn nearer to me. I am experiencing sweeter intimacy with Him.”

– Biola Undergrad

“I came into this experience feeling really directionless in my relationship with God - frustrated that there seemed to be a disconnect.  Spiritual direction helped me examine the areas of my life - like my time with the Lord - and work on relating to God better.  I experienced a lot of freedom in sharing how I was struggling spiritually.”
