Introducing Biblical Couselor, Dawn Trull

As Christians, we’re not promised that we will be free from problems.  In fact, James tells us, “...count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds....”  (James 1:2 ESV).  Because we live in a culture counter to God’s Word, much of the support and influence in our lives come from sources that do not align with God’s Word.  When we try to solve our problems based on the world’s solutions, we don’t receive lasting relief.  Our trials can seem overwhelming and unending.  So, if I’m a Christian, why am I still struggling—maybe with the same problem—and how do I get relief?  That’s where biblical counseling may be able to offer hope and help.  
As a biblical counselor, I believe the Bible is “breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness; that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.”  (2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV).  Doesn’t that sound like a good place to develop tools to learn how to deal with anxiety, depression, anger, relationship issues—trials of various kinds?
What does a biblical counseling session look like?  First of all, it’s confidential, free of cost, and lasts about an hour.  I like to meet weekly one-on-one for a period of several weeks or several months.  We spend time discussing your situation and we talk about how we can use the Bible to renew our thinking,learning “to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”  (Ephesians 4:23-24 ESV).  Basically, biblical counseling is learning how to apply God’s Word to the situations in our lives to enable us to become more like Christ.  
A little bit about myself.  I’m a daughter of the King, a wife, mother and soon-to-be grandmother!  I grew up in Minnesota, moved to Los Angeles in the 80’s where my son was born, and spent the last 25 years in Alabama.  In 2017, my husband and I moved to Clearwater to enable him to attend the National Aviation Academy.  We have recently joined Grace Community Church, PCA, in Palm Harbor.  Prior to moving to Florida, I was a legal assistant for 25 years and in 2005, started counseling women at Briarwood Church.  I became a certified biblical counselor through the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors in 2011.  
Please feel free to call me to discuss your situation and we can set up a time to meet.
Blessings!  Dawn Trull (205.908.1665

Key terms in Revelation:

Apokalypsis - "unveiling" - sheds light on OT prophecy, reveals vital spiritual truths, and points to the ultimate revelation of God through Christ at the end of time. 

"Soon" or "near" - Christ will come soon or his return is near.  These Greek terms express Christ's return as impending not immediate.  They reflect the suddenness of his return, not a short time before his coming.  These terms support the doctrine of imminency - that Christ's return could come at any moment. 

Propheteia - "prophecy" - this book is a revelation of things which must soon take place.
Proskyneo - "to bow down before" "to worship" - worship runs like a "precious thread" throughout Revelation. We are called to give Him glory, worship Him who made heaven and earth.
