• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

Does Depression Hold You Back?

If you have problems, try reading Psalm 42:1-11

This psalmist seems to swing like a pendulum, he / she loves God, God loves Him / her, then suddenly fed up (disquieted), then back praising. If this rings a bell, take comfort that it's nothing new. This contributor managed to get their thoughts in the Bible, how special is that? The author recalls that it wasn't always like that, recalling happier times (verse 4) but that was then, now things are distinctly downhill. Throughout he / she is feeling very isolated, alone: where's God? Head knowledge overcomes feelings, verse 11, for I shall yet praise Him.

Something else that's not new: attitudes towards mental health problems -
As with a breaking of my bones, My enemies reproach me, While they say to me all day long, “Where is your God?” Psalms 42:10 NKJV

Focus on God, He's more than just a happy, warm feeling. Focus on Him!
I've just watched a TV evangelist called David Jeremiah speaking on personal tragedy. I'm not a fan of most TV evangelists but this guy really knows his stuff and it's easy to relate to his sermons.

In this sermon he preaches from a different passage, the same message as my post yesterday, though I grant you he's a lot more eloquent than me. Watch the sermon, you might want to skip the adverts 4 min 10 secs in. Turning Point Television with Dr. David Jeremiah

If you're going through and struggling with overwhelming stress or situations please feel free to PM me and ill gladly pray with you and for you.

May God bless you.
