I am ready to be a CS Lay Counselor when I am emotionally freed up to allow the Holy Spirit to be my focus as I walk with another person through their pain. If I have not looked honestly at my past to understand how my own sinful patterns and others’ sin committed against me have impacted my life, I will be hindered in guiding others through their healing process. When I have allowed the Holy Spirit to do His work in my life, I will be equipped to help others find their healing and freedom in Christ.
Because of God’s redeeming power in my life, He has given me a passion for people and grace for the hurting. I have learned that it is not my responsibility to change another person. As I advise, I will not try to “fix” people, or “rescue” them from the consequences of the poor choices they have made. I will have a discerning heart to see what my advisee, at this time, cannot see and to help them realize that God is actively working in his/her brokenness for His glory.
This will produce patience in me as I work with others, knowing God has a plan for the healing of each individual He brings to me. It is not my work, but the supernatural power of God’s intervention upon a heart. I am only the instrument in God’s hand that He uses in this process.
I will have healthy boundaries as I work with men/women who have poor boundaries. I will continue to maintain an emphasis on my own spiritual growth.
Ministering to the broken will drive me to the arms of Jesus, my source of power and strength.
