When starting my new job I realized that God had a plan for me.
As I’ve blogged about the issue of being a Christian counselor I realized that working in a non-clinical position, but having to use my counseling skills, Master’s in Counseling Psychology degree as a requirement for the position, fulfilled a desire I have to help people but stay away from the DSM part (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders).
That is the part I have real problems with.
To start off with there are no real inferences to what sin causes in people’s lives, nor is there a reference to all Satan can do to a person. Nor does it ever reference God as being Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, so you see – being the healer that he is and having all the answers to life, and healing us from within, starting with the spirit of God working on us to make us healthy, deliver us from our sinful natures and all that stuff, I can’t fully endorse something I don’t believe in.
I would rather have gone to a Christian bible college and learned the ways of God first, then chosen a field of study. I did not have the information then so I chose Psychology. It seemed a comfortable place to begin, while learning about my family issues which are quite extensive.
But they may have been for you or anyone reading this blog.
Where are we today? Is there a God in your life?
If so, which one? Maybe you better examine the Lord God Almighty and then really study the bible to learn His ways. Pray and get guidance over your life. It will be worth it in the end, both literally and figuratively speaking.
