You Are Wanted

God, I need your help!

Jesus, son of God, have mercy on me!

Do you see yourself from a dark, negative perspective? Are you consumed by fear and panic, teetering on the edge? Do you hate yourself? Are you unable to see yourself through God's loving eyes? Are you feeling stuck, alone, or hopeless?

Everyone is broken. You may be broken, but that does not mean you are unlovable or permanently defective.

Life might have beaten you down. You might feel hopeless but you do not have to live this way. The farther away you feel from the light, the more each step you take toward the light makes a difference.

Professional Counseling can help you recover your true identity. God has redeemed you!

Are you (or your relationship) not looking so good right now? New Reflections Counseling provides a safe place where you can sort through your situation and find renewed hope.

When was the last time you were able to share your deepest concerns? Meeting with a counselor provides the opportunity to express what you have not been able to share with anyone else. Professional Counseling is confidential, so you can share your concerns without worry of hurting, draining, or offending others in your life.

Anytime you become aware of how you are hopelessly broken inside, you are ready to experience real hope. Biblical hope is the fertile soil in which joy grows. When you are aware of your neediness, you become capable of hearing Jesus's voice calling for you.

When Jesus heard this, he told them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.”

Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.

The same applies to you when you are ready to seek counseling. If you seek, you will find, not because you are a skilled seeker, but only because in seeking you open your heart to the truth. That is the core of successful counseling because it is also the core of genuine emotional healing.

Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.

Did you notice how these scriptures describe the door as having two sides? Jesus knocks but He also wants us to knock.
