Finished Class

I just finished my counseling class a few minutes ago … at least one of them. It’s just one of the many rungs to the ladder but boy! … it’s such a great feeling! All those countless hours! Now it’s time to take a break for the holidays. Come January, we will be taking marital counseling. That should be fun.

More than the excitement of finishing, I’m looking forward to the application of my studies. My wife and I took this Biblical Counseling course so we could help people who are struggling with cyclical issues in their lives … specifically, addictions and overcoming trauma. If you (or if you know) anyone who needs someone to come alongside them, my wife and I are here to help. We do not claim to be instant experts but I believe we have the basics down. And if we feel we are not qualified we probably can refer them to someone who is.

One of the reasons we are doing this is because someone else paid it forward and helped us along our seasons of difficulty. It is our season to pay up and we do it gladly — emotional battle scars and all. And if something good comes out of our efforts, may the glory be only to God.

I’m exhausted. This is all I have to say.

Of course, this is just me.

“A new commandment I give you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.”   — John 13:34-35
