“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” —Jeremiah 29:11
Recently I came across an article that was chosen by professors at a secular university here in Canada to share with our students. It was an article on how we as counsellors should hold hope for our clients, and how we need to share that hope for our clients with them so that they can have hope in their lives. I found the article interesting: what the author was saying is very true, but I also noticed that the kind of hope talked about in the article was a temporary kind of hope, devoid of power. It is clear to me that as Christian counsellors, we have a much more firm foundation of hope to share with our clients. Even though what the secular writer was true and noteworthy, they could not communicate the incredible power of the Christian hope that we as believers can share with our clients.
Everything has its own beginning and the end. This is true even about the educational process. It seems that it was just autumn when the studying year began, and now it is at its end.
