We discuss mental health and counseling here.
Specifically, we discuss Christian Counseling individuals, couples, communities, and
families, and it’s Biblically based, for health, healing, and wholeness.
In this article, there are 3 things I want to share to help you know God better.
Prayer: Eph. 1:17 is part of a prayer. Therefore, as we pray, it “draws” us away from
ourselves/our issues and towards God, the Healer. Prayer is a form of communication
and in any relationship effective communication is essential. Our body language is one
way we talk. So, I encourage you to position yourself in a way that we say, “I am here to
listen and talk”. Here our attention is undivided, we have singleness of focus and
purpose for being present.
Worship: this is a time set aside from everything else to be present with God. We block
out all distraction and focus only on Him, for He is Worthy. We know how to give our
attention to one person or thing, but here we make a conscious, an intentional effort to
spend quality time with the Lover of your (my) soul. Quick point: the soul is made up of
our will, mind, and emotions. Our mental health is dependent on soul restoration. He
restores our souls (Psalm 23:3) and worship is a very special place, in His Presence, for
Word/The Bible: God’s Word is His Will and His Way (See 1 John 5:14-15). This is the
confidence we have in prayer. Reading gives us access to information that is very
helpful to change the way we live. Many of us have heard, said, or read that words
“make” us feel and act a certain way. Words are very powerful/impactful. By spending
time in His Word, in honoring the written Word, the Rhema Word (the right now, present
Word) is released to help us in our situations. I strongly encourage us all to Study the
Word of God with an open mind and an open heart, to really focus on what is being
communicated to us (it’s not like anything else we read; See 2 Tim 2:15 & 3:16-17). I
pray believing that we Get to Know God Better, for our Health, Healing, and Wholeness.
