Winning the battle in my mind
Female, Anonymous - Waxahachie, TX
When I began counseling, I struggled with a lot of anxiety, self-hatred, and negative thinking. Through my counseling sessions I learned that I don't have to let my thoughts control my life. A big "Aha!" moment for me was learning that the spiritual war occurs in our minds. Becoming aware that most of these thoughts are coming directly from the enemy helped me to begin fighting this spiritual battle. I am applying what I have learned by grounding myself in truth. I don't want to be easily deceived by the enemy or get upset over trivial things in life. I realize now that I have to be rooted in the truth of who God is and what He says about me for that to change. I feel like, over these last few months, I have been able to fully surrender to God. I have more of a desire to know Him and to read His word. What I liked most about my counseling sessions was feeling free to truly express how I felt. I loved the guidance that Stephanie gave me and liked that she listened but then always took action. I benefited a lot from the homework that was given because it helped me apply what was discussed during my sessions.
