“Healing is impossible in loneliness; it is the opposite of loneliness. Conviviality is healing. To be healed we must come with all the other creatures to the feast of Creation." Wendell Berry

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Which Promises are for Me?

Which Promises are for Me?

Not many things are more comforting than a promise made and kept. And not many things are more hurtful than a promise broken. Knowing we worship a God who keeps His promises is a source of deep joy. But misapplied, this knowledge can lead us to treasure hunt Scripture for promises in problematic way…

The Inescapability of Trials-Part 1 - Global Counseling Initiative

An earlier post from one of our counselors, Eric De Leeuwerk.

Louie Zamperini. Immediately I was captivated by this man’s story and awe-struck at the endless path of trials he traversed. Just to give you an idea, here are a few of his “credentials”: Adjustment to life as an “outsider” as a kid who didn’t “belong.” The endurance needed and pain experienced to b…

Not Alone - Global Counseling Initiative

An earlier, encouraging post from Della Vaughan, one of our GCI counselors.

“Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought that no one but myself …” (C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves) Almost three years ago, I sat down to interview for my first counseling practicum and took a deep breath, hoping to hide my anxious feelings. The director…

What Is Your Priority? - Global Counseling Initiative

A good reminder about priorities from one of our counselors, Elizabeth Pitts.

What is your number one priority in your life? Is it work? Leisure? Service? Money? Family? We give priority to what is most important. The story of Mary and Martha has been one of the most treasured narratives in Scripture. Who doesn’t identify with hardworking Martha? And who doesn’t admire the si…

“In a word, live together in the forgiveness of your sins, for without it no human fellowship, least of all a marriage, can survive. Don’t insist on your rights, don’t blame each other, don’t judge or condemn each other, don’t find fault with each other, but accept each other as you are, and forgive each other every day from the bottom of your hearts…” Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison

He First Loved Us - Global Counseling Initiative

Special thanks to Mike Mobley at Before the Cross for your inspiring post to our blog!

We need to reminder ourselves day after day that Jesus first loved us, which is the reason we can do anything or love anyone. Jesus bridged the gap.

Finally, I saw him … the Teacher whom all were there to see. I was too, but I wanted … Continue reading An Unexp…

Prayer in the Moment - Global Counseling Initiative

Good thoughts on prayer from one of our counselors, Cole Dawkins. Photo contributed by Amy Vaughan at Garnet Lane Design & Photography.

Recently, I was sitting in my small group dealing with an all too familiar fear that comes back again and again… the fear of being vulnerable. We had gotten to the end of the group where we typically talk about prayer requests that get sent in a weekly email. I had one, but it was … Continue reading…

Everyday Gratitude: Part Two - Global Counseling Initiative

Don't miss reading the second part of Della Vaughan's gratitude piece! http://globalcounselinginitiative.com/2015/04/everyday-gratitude-part-two/

Gratitude necessitates expression. Gratitude is a gift in itself, important enough that we teach our children to say thank you as soon as they begin forming words and phrases. Failure to express gratitude sometimes results from attitudes of self-absorption and a sense of entitlement. More often, tho…

We all know that certain words have the power to cut straight to our souls. Oftentimes they come in the form of undue ridicule, truth spoken yet void of love, or simply as a virile attack on one’s own being. Perhaps as you’re reading your mind recalls that phrase you likely heard as a child, … Conti…
