Nervous

We all get anxious at one time or another in our lives for many different reasons, but we are not to let fear and nervousness dominate our lives as they could lead to greater problems. HELPFUL TIPS FOR OVERCOMING DEPRESSION

Many of the bible characters suffered from anxiety or other emotional problems. Elijah suffered depression and David suffered much anxiety…. In Psalm 139 : 3 David says: “Search me oh God and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts .”

In Philippians 4:6 we are told……“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.”

So while me may become anxious and try to find every earthly way to help us, we should not discount also turning to God for help.

Why I’m No Longer Lonely

So my church is doing an Evangelistic Series for the next three weeks and on the first night the Pastor touched on the subject of “Loneliness.” It is being spoken of a lot in the news….A few days ago I listened to a program on that very subject. It seems as though many older people are feeling rather alone, especially after the loss of a spouse. We also know that you can have the sense of being alone at any age. I already shared a time in my own life of  when I felt alone. TWO DIFFERENT PATHS Now, even though I may spend much time alone, I never feel lonely.

These few word really say a lot, and the Pastor repeated them over and over. “No God, No Peace. No God, No Peace.

Just this morning on the news, it was said that 65% on College and University students are suffering with anxiety issues and some with severe depression, yet I’m also told the new religion these days is to have no religion. Why Complicate Simplicity when life could be so simple!! Why Complicate Simplicity

The next few words he would repeat over and over was:

2  Know God, Know Peace.

It’s really as simple as that. When we are intimately connected to God, we will live more peaceful and contented lives. Feelings of loneliness will vanish. The Pastor also stated that when we seek out a Psychiatrist he will only give a panacea lasting us till the next session. As I’ve stated on my About I’m not telling anyone not to seek professional help, but what I would like for others to know, is that God should not be discounted, after all He is the Healer.

When I came seeking God, it was for the most selfish reasons, but He accepted me anyway. I was seeking physical healing. I searched and searched the bible, prayed, cried out to Him, and He would reveal Himself to me in the most marvelous ways. If you are tormented, if you are in pain, if you are depressed or lonely, whatever you may be suffering from, a solid connection to God is the answer.

There are many examples of living a life without God in the bible. As long as we are willing to make the change, and turn and walk in the right direction, wonderful things can happen in our lives. HOW TWO MEN WERE CURED FROM MENTAL ILLNESS

This blog is from a time in my life when I felt lost and all alone.FROM DESPAIR TO JOYFULNESS God is a Good God, and He is available to all. He brought me where my self-help books couldn’t take me. He brought me, where my positive thoughts alone couldn’t take me. He will never leave me, and I’m so happy to know that I have an everlasting friend.
