"If we are God’s children, then even our depression will display his glory and purposes as he holds us secure in his unfailing love."

"As Christ’s followers we gladly leap into the mission field, cook meals for the destitute, and embrace the grieving; but when depression strikes, misconceptions can deteriorate this spirit of compassion. At best, we practice silence and avoidance. At worst, we blame the sufferer and disregard the depressed as too lax in faith to pull themselves from the depths."
thegospelcoalition.org Too often sufferers of depression find the church to be a home for ridicule, rather than truth and love.

fightthenewdrug.org In this week's edition of What's The Research, we delve into a study that reveals that millennials are seeing, first-hand, the harmful effects of p**n.
Holidays can be overwhelming. Or, it can be a therapeutic time too. For instance, smells of cider, hot chocolate, or pine can remind of past memories, hopes of future memories, or peace in the moment. Sometimes it is good to pay attention to what our senses are telling us!
So, remember to stop and smell the holiday “roses” during this busy season!
Then I began hearing His voice. It was radically different from hers. He wasn’t looking for a perfect body. But a willing vessel, a dwelling for His love.

“You'll never get to a person's soul until you understand their hurts.”
― Ravi Zacharias
"No matter the type of brokenness — physical or mental — Christian identity is found not in a diagnosis, but instead in our position as redeemed children of God (Romans 8:16–17)."
desiringgod.org The identity of God’s people never rests in a diagnosis, even if the pain feels all-consuming. When the world says, “bipolar,” God says, “beloved.”
"When you get what you want but not what you need..." Songs say much about emotions. This one is a classic.

"While we may say God is most important in our lives, and that he is in control, we struggle to live this way practically in light of the circumstances we face on a regular basis. Worry is over-concern that results from over-loving something—loving it more than God."
thegospelcoalition.org Whenever you place your ultimate hope in anything in this world, you will struggle with worry.
"I shudder to think what would have happened had God never exposed my sin and crushed me as he did. It was the worst and best year of my life."
