I am a HUGE HONKIN advocate for Christian counseling. I would dare say that everybody, at some point, needs it. I first saw a counselor when I was 8 years old, after my grandma turned over a suicide letter I had written her. Counseling for that? I should think so! And over the last three decades, I’ve had no shame in stating that I’ve needed counseling for other things. There are people who need counseling but don’t want to get it. I suppose they’re afraid of stuff. Afraid of anyone finding out. Afraid of having to dig up stuff they’ve been able to bury. Afraid of what it might cost, financially. Afraid of it not working. Those are valid fears. Because over the years, I’ve wrestled with those fears too. But here’s the dealio–I DON’T WANT TO STAY SICK. When I’m physically sick, I go to a doctor because I want to get better. And, over the course of my life, the same logic has applied to when I’ve been mentally, relationally or emotionally sick. I go to my counselor because I want to get better. So who should go to a Christian counselor? Anyone who has crap in their past or pain in their present. Abuse, addiction, codependency, death, divorce, unemployment, depression, anxiety, fear, phobia, stress, sleeplessness, relational dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, obsessive thoughts, trauma, tragedy….these are just to list a few. I’ll end by saying there are more reasons to get Christian counseling than excuses to not. You WIN when you do. I hope this encourages someone today. Thanks for driving by.
