Here’s the real point though: my favorite thing about the help I got was that they intentionally pointed out how scientific discoveries in the realm of psychology - over and over again - confirmed scriptural truth. My counselor pointed out how the commandments of God on how to live our lives are completely in line with what she called “healthy choices.”
It is great to know, in our lack of faith and disbelief, that God is not leading us astray, that he truly does have our best interests at heart - even if sometimes it leaves us like sulky teenagers having to admit our father is right! It calls to mind the words of the Psalmist in Psalm 18:30
I will lastly use this post as a thank you to my counselor. It was she who suggested that I make use of the knowledge I gained in my own research and soul-searching during that dark time in my life for the good of others. It was she who inspired me to start writing the pieces that became this blog!
