Welcome to the ReCovering blog and newsletter. In this first post we will tell you about who we are and the vision Yahweh (the Lord) has called us to.
We are a non-conventional biblical counseling ministry. That is on purpose. Conventional counseling, whether it is secular or Christian, typically has people coming back for many months and years and while they provide coping mechanisms and therapies, there is rarely lasting healing. This consumes a lot of time, money and energy. We believe there is a better way and have sought to embrace that. Our counseling model's focus is on healing and strengthening the heart and discovering and embracing who we are created by God to be.
Our purpose is to walk with and help others move out of their pain and into freedom in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah. People learn how to trust Yeshua with their pain, take it to Him and He heals their heart and brings wholeness to them. We are the flesh that He works through to make that happen. We know when pain is healed when it is no longer attached to a memory. The incident can be remembered but there is no longer pain when it is remembered.
All counseling is free of charge, anyone seeking healing is able to receive it without financial burden. ReCovering is supported by prayer and the financial gifts of those who share in the vision of healthy and whole individuals, marriages and families grounded in Yeshua and by those who have benefited from the ReCovering ministry.
The counseling itself lasts from a week- with meetings 3 hours a day for 5 days (for a total of 15 hours) to 3 months if meeting once a week (for a total of 15 hours.) Depending on the situation sometimes more time is needed. Counsel by phone can take longer due to not being in person.
ReCovering describes in one word the process of being covered, protected, restored, redeemed, nurtured, sheltered, clothed, safe, secure and healed. Our purpose is to help others return and remain under the covering of God, bringing more joy and peace to life.
In the next blog we will describe how this is done.
