Why podcasts? First, we’ve had a lot of requests asking us to get back on the air. We care about supporting you in life and ministry, so we’re making it happen. Second, the podcast format allows us to touch on topics that can be difficult to cover in other forms of media. Those are two good reasons, but at the heart of why we are relaunching the CCEF podcast is because we recognize that biblical counseling is hard. We want you to know that you are not the only one out there that finds it challenging, and we’re committed to coming alongside and supporting you in the process. We’re in this together.
Why Should I Read Leviticus?
Leviticus is probably not the first place that people think about life meeting scripture. Most of us don't get to January 1st, planning to read through the Bible this year, and put the day on their calendar that we get to start Leviticus. That's not how most of us tend to a function. Of course, if you have read the entire Bible, you have a sense that the book of Leviticus is quite important.
What if Counseling Isn't Encouraging?
"Think about Psalm 103. That beautiful phrase, "For the Lord knows that we are dust." He sees our frailty, He knows how fragile we are, and He meets us in that."
Is It Okay to Want Affirmation?
"The problem is not that our desires need to stay constantly small and in check to make sure they don't threaten our feeble love for Christ. It's rather, we want our love for Christ to grow and grow"
“Biblical hope is, God is with you. You are not alone in the wilderness. God is with you and that changes everything.”
“If we are people of the God of grace, and the word of God is utterly full of grace, then any true words we say ought to be full of grace as well.”
Negative Emotions Part 2
“The Bible offers one central way of dealing with our negative emotions: we pray them. We take our deeply distressing emotions and we run to the Lord, placing them in his hands."
Please continue to speak to our hearts thru this podcast! I haven’t been able to put into words the “blah” feeling but you did! Languishing! And then you gave me scripture and truth to meditate on. It’s true. God is with me in the wilderness; yet, He is also shaping me on the journey through the wilderness. Focus on the fire within me. It’s leading me thru the wilderness.

Absolutely incredible. I can’t get over how good this is. Such rich truth and beautiful perspective. Feel like I’m sitting back in my counselor’s office when I listen 😍😉
