Christian Counseling - The Wise and Foolish Builder

I would like to come to you today as the wise builder. Wouldn't that be nice; to have it all together. However, it is simply not so.

As some of you may have noticed, I have been absent from writing for a couple months. These past several months have been difficult ones for my family. Every person in my family has had some sort of injury, sickness, or surgery during this time. Some have had all three. I often speak with clients and students about the wise and foolish builders. How we deal with inevitable storms in life is extremely important because how we prepare often leads to how we respond.

Well, I thought I had prepared for the storms of life. Boy was I wrong. Since I had not prepared well, my responses were limited. Many days it seemed like my only options were to choose between fatigue and irritability. Can any of you relate? I would imagine more than would like to admit.

Today, I hesitate to say that my family has weathered the worst of the present set of storms. One way to deal with this is to wipe my brow and exhale with an audible sigh. Another way, the way I am choosing today, is to examine the past several months to look for future lessons. I find that God often uses the most stressful times in my life to teach me how I handle things when they are not so stressful. Maybe this is similar to your experience of life.

Over the next several months, I will endeavor to pursue greater self understanding in regard to the storms that have recently blown through my family. I will attempt to discuss some of these steps through this blog. My hope is that you will join me. Feel free to email me or to share some of your steps of growth in the comments section. Take care.
