Some people cringe when they hear the word ‘counseling.’ I want to share what I do through God’s Word in my counseling sessions. Thomas Hardy Leahey stated, “Psychology means ‘psyche-logos’, literally the study of the soul.” (Quote from A History of Psychology: Main Currents in Psychological Thought). When I read this quote, I became excited. I can teach, counsel, and write from Genesis to Revelations on the study of the soul. God breathed into Adam and man became a living soul.
Isaiah 61 tells us that Jesus was coming with the salvation message and, also, to heal broken hearts and set captives free. We have saved people sitting in our church pews deeply wounded from the pain of their past or present. God erases our sins through salvation, but he does not erase our experiences, memories or emotions. Emotional wounds touch the heart, soul, and mind. The devil has come to kill, steal and destroy us through toxic thoughts.
My counseling is done by using God’s wisdom and truth. I do not use psychobabble. I use God’s Word. Wounded hearts are entrenched in the rut of their ‘stinkin thinkin’ regarding the pain of their life. Healing comes when we are ‘transformed by renewing our minds’ through God’s truth – Roms. 12: 1 & 2. God says when we experience new birth in Him (Acts 2:38); we are a new creation in Christ Jesus. This new means we become a brand new (unused) vessel filled with His Spirit. Through God’s Word, we learn how to define who we are by His truth, replacing toxic thinking about the pain of the past through God’s truth.
Abuse victims and many others with pain in their past are sitting in our pews in silence. They’ve been emotionally hurting for years and don’t know whom they can trust with their pain. They feel helpless, hopeless, unworthy, and unlovable because of the toxic thinking that the devil uses to destroy the joy of the Lord. They have been told, “Pray more and give it to Jesus!” Prayer is necessary, but the mind is transformed by renewing the mind with God’s truth getting rid of the toxic thoughts/feelings!
Many marriages in the church are in pain and they do not know how to break the generational dysfunction. Husbands need to learn how to be the pastor of the family so the wife and children are thrilled to arrange themselves under the protection and leadership of a God-like husband/father. Through God’s Word, I give counsel with His wisdom for healing and restoration. My marriage book is available – God’s Design for Marriage.
On the ‘about ministry’ page of www.carolclemans.org, I explain the counseling process asking for a minimal offering to the ministry for one full hour of counseling including prayer. I list all the subjects that I counsel.
I provide confidential counseling nationwide (636) 448-0121 – phone/Facetime/Facebook video/Skype. This is for the hurting and, also, helps pastors for the spiritual, emotional and relational growth of their people. I also co-counsel people in their pastor’s office through live Skype.
People are calling me nationwide for God-counseling almost daily. I’m booking sessions 2 – 4 weeks out weekly, bi-weekly, tri-weekly, monthly. After each session, the counselee makes the decision regarding another session. I encourage people to try one session and decide from there.
In 25 years, I’ve never had a person stop counseling at one session because I speak God’s truth. Holy Ghost counseling nationwide is almost impossible to find. God opened the nationwide counseling door (worldwide through Skype) and the calls for counseling come in weekly.
If you are hurting, please do not be afraid to reach out for God-based counseling so you can be transformed by the power of God’s Word! (Order my book: God’s Design for Marriage – for premarital preparation and growth in marriage @ www.carolclemans.org). I teach Marriage Seminars for churches.
