A Step of Faith


Coming To Whole Person Counseling

    For anyone to come to Whole Person Counseling, it is always takes a step of faith especially if the individual is traveling from out of the state or out of the country.  Many of the clients whom I see have experienced other types of counseling (psychological, medical, social, and some spiritual), but it is usually dramatically different from Whole Person Counseling. I therefore, recognize that people don't fully know what to expect when they come to Whole Person Counseling and are not sure of what the results will be.  Therefore, for everyone's benefit, I try to give as much information as I can about Whole Person Counseling and what to expect

    However, I still recognize that it takes a step of faith to come.  Therefore, I would strongly suggest that you pray and ask God if you should come.  "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him" (James 1:5).  You may also seek the counsel of the spiritual authority over you (such as your pastor, husband, or employer).  God works through authority.  I also am open to visiting by phone with your spiritual authority about your coming. "Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you" (Hebrews 13:17).

    If you come to believe that is God's will to have you to come, then He will provide a way where there seems to be no way.  Jesus said, "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive" (Matthew 21:22).  Again, Jesus said, "Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth" (Mark 9:23).  In the natural things may look impossible concerning finances, time, transportation, and child care; however, Jesus said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible" (Mark 10:27).  Faith is a step into an area that is not yet realized in the natural. It is much like walking across the little bridge illustrated in the above photo.  You don't fully know what you will experience until you get on the other side.

    You should also know that if it is God's will for you to come and you make a decision to come, that God may allow the enemy to test that decision.  It is not unusual for the kids to get sick, for someone close to die, for the car to break down, for you to have a major conflict with someone close, for there to be unexpected financial expenses, or for a loss of a job.  Generally, these are nothing more than an attack of the enemy to keep you from receiving the freedom, healing, direction, and blessings that God has for you.  Remember: "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:   Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world" (I Peter 5:7-9).  Also remember that when the enemy comes that it is an opportunity for you to take a spoil.  Taking A Spoil

    Faith is a key element in your receiving God's blessings.  "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him" (Hebrews 11:6).  If you have some faith, but still have some doubts, that is O.K.  "And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief" (Mark 9:24). Jesus didn't get on the father's case, but instead healed his son.  It is not so much how much faith that you have is important, but what you do with what you do have.
