"Practical spiritual advice in a patient manner"
"After many years of unsuccessful secular counseling, I sought a Christian counselor. Dr. Long not only lovingly taught scriptural truths, but his gift of being able to teach application in everyday life has enabled me to experience mighty works through God in my life. Dr. Long has been my counselor, my mentor and even my friend. Thank you Dr. Long for allowing God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, use you to change so many lives!"
"(My counselor) gives me security that I can trust his principles and that he is not just teaching them, but he believes them to be true."
"Homework! I don’t just come talk and leave. We discuss things and look in God’s Word. During the week there are things I’m responsible for, that really helps me be committed."
I would say if you would like to grow in your faith, overcome challenges you face (that perhaps you thought you never would), and do so with the help of a compassionate and caring counselor, then this is the place for you. There is a plan, a direction for your work, and unending patience in the process. In addition to counseling, I found the various methods used to be extremely helpful. They include Bible study, literature, testing and the use of specific tools. This is a God-honoring process with a purpose and the means to achieve success. I highly recommend Dr. James Long, and I believe he is an excellent model for Christian counseling.
Dr. Long, I saw this quote here on Facebook, and it reminded me of you. You taught me something along these lines as well. So powerful…
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
Thank you for your extraordinary teaching and counsel!
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
