Sorry For the Confusion

Hi friends,

In answer to your questions, I realise I need to clarify:

This blog is about depression and is for all those who suffer with this blight, whether they are a Christian or non-believer. I focus mainly on the former, because it is easier for them to understand the spiritual terms and references to bible stories / principles. But there is an urgency in my heart for those who do not have the privilege of yet knowing that God is our peace, the Holy Spirit is our comfort and Jesus is our healer.

I only post videos on here that are relevant to the subject of depression or pertaining directly or indirectly to anxiety and prolonged sadness.

My YouTube channel was primarily to give people a good taster of my books, by me reading whole chapters, so that one can get a flavour of whether they are something suitable for them, or to give to a friend as a gift. There is nothing worse than buying a CD and discovering that you only like 2 tracks out of 18. It’s the same with books – I’d be mortified if anyone purchased one of my publications, only to discover it is not really what they wanted or imagined it would be like. Your time is precious and so is your money!

But I soon discovered that my channel and blog complement each other, because much content from my books relate directly or indirectly to depression and anxiety.

Thank you to those who have clicked on the white arrow and watched one of my recent videos – even more, if you blessed my algorithms by watching until the very end.

I met a lovely lady today who told me that she is sad all the time. My heart went out to her. We were not in a situation apt for me to share the good news of the gospel. I think I’m quite rubbish at witnessing anyway. I’m praying for her and realising once again, how fortunate I am to have known the Lord from an early age.

Nevertheless, this encounter has deepened my heart for the depressed and strengthened my determination to continue to allow the Lord to use me in whatever way he sees fit. We’re all just empty vessels, waiting to be used by the Potter, and I wish you all the best with whatever the Lord has laid on your heart to do on WordPress and other social media platforms you feel lead to be a part of.

Changing the subject abruptly…I’m not sure if that little moggy above is confused, frightened or has just consumed a packet of starch. What do you think?

  1. Sharon, thank you for this blog post.

    I particularly identified with this line: I think I’m quite rubbish at witnessing anyway.

    I hope I am able to witness through my blog. Therefore, I hope my blog is not a WASTE OF TIME. I always appreciate your encouragement.

    I hope you and your family are well. We are in the middle of a winter storm here in central USA.

    • Hi Debbie! Yes, your blog is great! Don’t give up on it. But there’s no pressure to stick to a certain frequency either. I’m always happy to see a new post from you. xxx

      Ah storms! I hope they are not too scary. We had turbulent wind last week which blew our garage door of its hinges. The company we booked said they would ring us 1 hour before they arrive. They rang, but I couldn’t get to the phone in time, so they didn’t turn up. They said, “Well you could have been out.” We replied, “Our garage is wide open and the whole point of us booking a repair man was that we would definitely be in!” In the end, we had to sleep 2 nights with it wide open and when it comes to theft, our area doesn’t have much self-control. Thankfully, when the guy finally arrived, he fixed it in less than 15 seconds and told us he would not charge us anything at all.

      I do hope that nothing of yours gets damaged and that you will all be safe. Times like this remind us of God’s protective wings and remind us to be grateful once more for his watchful eye, doesn’t it?

      I am always intrigued by other places and would love to see what one of your storms looks like. And I’m surprised that central America would have such turbulence, being in the middle. Shows how much I don’t know. I imagine that the states on the borders get is worse? Am I right, or is my geography terrible? xxx
