Biblical Worldview Essay

As I have learned in this course, and the last five months of rebirth and renewal in my Christian faith, we all are created in the image of God. He desires a personal relationship with every one of us, and He seeks each of us out to have that relationship. Yet many of us turn away
from Him and his love for a multitude of reasons. Inspired by my own life experiences, my future career plans are to become a peer mentor, or crisis counselor helping other fellow veterans with their life challenges. That is if I ever go back to work, as my accident in September has left me unable to work, in which case I would then use my knowledge and life experiences to do the same ...view middle of the document...

” The second Scripture touches me deeply and I believe many of my future patients could identify with this passage. Ezekiel 36:26 say, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” That is such a powerful and inspiring passage! Many of us combat veterans who have been through so much often refer to hearts as being black and stone cold, so it is easy to relate to this as a PTSD sufferer. By spending time with patients, being honest with my patients, and developing trust, I could then speak of this passage without “pushing” my own worldviews or beliefs on them but show them how it relates to them and me regardless of their belief system. Because it is such a strong message, one cannot deny its teaching.
Redemption is also a great topic for PTSD sufferers. I know this because I have suffered from severe PTSD for 10 years now. This is a topic that can be talked about with a patient using Christian beliefs but not pushing the Christian agenda. It opens things up for them to consider, and may trigger something ever greater inside them. Having been a combat veteran who has attempted suicide, cursed God, and turned my back on the world, if by becoming a counselor, and guiding my patients with my worldview saves one soul, one life, then I will feel that I have accomplished what God intended me to do in this life. However I can base my experiences of my own redemption and express them to my patients to help them to know that they are not alone, I will do it. As a peer mentor I can show them that even though they may have survivor’s guilt, anxiety, or bad self-worth, there is always time and opportunity to seek redemption and come to peace with the things they have seen and done. That is what a peer mentor is for, they aren’t “shrinks”, or counselors, in their eyes they are just as they are. Having seen and done many of the things that most of my clients have done gives me instant credibility, which helps with the trust issue that most other peer mentors have to break through before getting to common ground. Many a combat veteran will not even speak to anyone who hasn’t done what they have done because so many...
