Counseling (A true Story from my Book "Rescue the Stories # Three)
I heard the frantic cry of my husband, “Hazel,
Please come in here quick,” was his plea.
We were assisting a small church in their
Christian Educational department, but my husband was often asked to perform
On this day, a distressed woman had asked for
counsel as she was having a problem coping with her distraught husband.The gentleman had recently suffered the loss
of one of his arms, and feeling that he was less of a man, he ending up by
pushing her away.
Arriving to answer my husband’s call of
concern, I entered the office to find the woman dressed provocatively in mini
shorts, a deep cut blouse and heavy make up.
One important thing they teach you in any BibleSchool
is to protect yourself against gossip or suspicion that could end in
slander.Here was a typical example in
Ministers should be careful if at all possible
not to council the opposite sex with the door shut, and if available to invite
their mate, or another person to sit in on the session.
Sobbing, the woman poured out her story, and
it was extremely evident that she did not actually want direction and
guidance.She was searching for someone
to agree with her and comfort her in her decision to leave her husband.
A few months later, we saw her again, and this
time she informed us that she was happily engaged to be married to a fine
gentleman.We offered our
congratulations.What else could we say?
I am reminded of the wedding vows, so easily
forgotten by some, in times of illness, accidents, or even when angry,
“Forsaking all others; until death do us part.”
Many times, the grass on the other side of the
fence that appears so inviting will soon surprise you, because it has been
sprayed with weed killer, and will quickly wither and dry up.
Not all exchanges are for the better.
Only one is; The great exchange.This is when you give Jesus your old life and
you receive HIS everlasting life to live inside your heart.
When it comes to counseling, for myself, I
have discovered long ago, that a little talk with your best friend, Jesus is
safe, and He does not pass on to others, what you have shared with Him.
