When God Speaks

Monday, August 12, 2013

Many years ago, God spoke into my heart the dream/calling of being a counselor. I majored in Psychology in college and even worked with juveniles for a while doing counseling. The issue that drove me away was the inability to detach from people and be clinical.

So I wrote that off as something of my own desire rather than the voice of God. But I still loved being an attentive ear to friends, family, colleagues, etc. And I would get insight into the heart of the matter....only possible with God.

Fast forward a few years and I'm doing an assessment to determine my spiritual gift as part of a bible study. Any guesses as to my gift? Encourager/counselor. Well I already kind of knew that God was using me to encourage people. It's one of the things I've always felt deep in my heart. So I began to just think the dream of counselor was really just part of being an encourager.

One of the most powerful things drawing me and my husband together was a desire for ministry. God has made it very clear to both of us that He has a powerful plan for us as a ministry team.

This morning my husband said God gave me a little glimpse of our ministry together. And I said oh yeah what was it? His answer.....christian counseling. God is good and faithful.
