Christian counseling is for everybody who has a deep desire to learn, grow, heal, change, and become all that God has wired and designed that person to become. Christian counseling should unlock and pull all the potential that God has placed in an individual. Yes, I believe that God has created each one of us for great purpose and for glory! The same glory that Jesus has in the Father and had so amazingly demonstrated while here on earth. This Heavenly realm of God’s glory is now ours to experience even here on earth through the redeeming work of Jesus on the cross. His blood not only paid the price for the forgiveness of all human sins, but it also opened the way for all humans to experience Heaven on Earth!
Now the question one should ask is: What is Heaven like? How do I access it on a daily basis and in a practical way? Here are I believe the benefits of Christian counseling: it is a practical guidance and a journey to experience all that God has for you. The client and the Christian counselor together take that journey with God’s guidance as they allow God to speak and guide them into His heart and presence and to demonstrate what it is like to live out of His Heavenly realm here on earth, just like Jesus did.
How is all that done in the counseling process? Well you just have to try Christian counseling for yourself to see…..
