Counseling and Me

I left counseling feeling good. Like it’s Friday and I have no responsibilities kinda good. As I left, I started to recollect my journey in counseling. How did I become a person who smiles after seeing a counselor? I heard recently that between the time a person FIRST thinks they should see a counselor and when they walk into a counselor’s office in on average 10 years! 10 years of frustration with feelings. 10 years of underperforming relationships. 10 years of…

The Hero Before you

There’s been a lot of talk about something I said on Sunday, that you were created for heroic works. So, I thought I’d elaborate some.  In Ephesians 2:10 Paul writes “we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works.” The word “good,” agathos in Greek, is often taught to refer to moral behavior. But this is a small view of the word.  When the Bible speaks of “good” you need to remember the first few times the word is…

You probably know the rest of the story. His name is Moses and goes on to shape…

Jesus is making his way through town when a foreigner shows up with request, heal her son. This may sounds strange to us, but Jesus is initially reluctant. (We can go into why another time- or google it.) In the midst of his reluctant the woman shows faith is Christ’s ability to heal her…
