Christians and Depression

 

Woman StressClarksville, TN – In the winter of 2006–7, while in the middle of a divorce, I plummeted into a mental state unlike anything I’ve experienced before or since. This was not simply a case of the blues. I lost all interest in the activities that constituted life: people, writing, my job, food, recreation, and daily rituals like grocery shopping.

The moment I woke, I longed for bedtime—for escape—and yet I couldn’t sleep. Nausea, confusion, and exhaustion plagued me. Smiling was impossible in the face of intolerable sadness. Pulling myself out of bed each morning was torment. «Read the rest of this article»

Fort Campbell, KY – The deafening roar of the jet’s turbine engines slowly decreases as the plane comes to a halt on the Fort Campbell runway.

As the door opens, Soldiers exit the aircraft to officially end their deployment with their canine partners by their side.

Besides the obvious need to put their paws on some solid ground, the military working dogs all seem to be more affectionate than usual.

What’s On Your Mind

 

Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – Your mind is like a computer. Every thought that flows through it, and every image that you create, is inscribed on the cells of your brain.  Recall some of your thoughts and created images. Then imagine them on a motion picture screen. Would you be willing, and pleased, for that film to be shown to every Sunday school class in our land? No? Why not?

God has called us to holiness in all our thoughts. This must be our goal even when we feel too human to begin. This may seem like an impossible task, but anything less falls short of what he has asked and few Christians seem to know what it is that God has told us in his written word about holy thoughts. «Read the rest of this article»
