Learning our Original Design

Story by Julie, Foundations for Counselling Ministry (FCM) Student

“Last week FCM started our first lecture series on ‘The Foundation of Counselling Ministry.’ The week focused on each individual’s original design and how mankind was created to receive love from God. What impacted me is understanding how important it is for me to receive love from God. It’s easy to say ‘God loves me,’ but not truly let it impact my life. When we as believers know and recognize that we are loved by God our entire perspective changes about ourselves and the people around us. Suddenly a person we encounter on the street isn’t just a number but a beautiful creation that was designed to have a relationship with God. As a counsellor in training, my purpose is no longer to only help people with their problems but to see every person acknowledge that they are loved by their Creator.”
