Welcome to the Living Room

beatdepression776

Welcome to the living room. It’s not easy to put your feet up and relax when you’re feeling so miserable all the time and it’s hard to unwind if your gut is tense with anxious feelings.

We are all familiar with the phrase, ‘the truth hurts’ and when it comes to the subject of mental health, nobody wants to be told ‘just snap out of it’. Indeed, God hates it when we wound the wounded with our insensitive words that have more power to hinder than heal. However, Jesus has the power to completely free us from depression and anxiety and wants us to turn to him for help.

Dotted around this blog are sample chapters from two of my books.

They were written to help you beat depression, by showing you that there is HOPE. Why? Because despite your circumstances, your past, your fears for the future, a very real God loves you. Despite your failures, sins and weaknesses, he looks down at you with a smile on his face. He knows what you can become if you allow him to get hold of your heart – the first organ he formed inside your body when you began to develop into an embryo.

You were created for an amazing purpose and that begins by acknowledging that someone far bigger than you, wiser than you, more loving than you, is interested in every part of your precious life.

Feel free to hop into the comment box to say ‘Hello’ and I promise to wander over to your site to see what you’re up to.

  1. Bonjour ou bonsoir

    Proverbe
    L’amour doit se répandre en amitié sincère
    Pour parer aux écueils jonchés par l’adversaire
    Qui déverse, souvent, son poison dans nos cœurs

    Nous sommes voyageurs dans un monde éphémère
    Pour pouvoir l’enjamber sans beaucoup de douleurs

    Faisons de l’amitié notre constant critère
    Bonne journée mon Ami ou Amie

    gros bisous.Bernard

    • Salut Bernard. Merci pour le proverbe: “Love must spread in sincere friendship to counter the pitfalls littered by the adversary who pours, often, his poison into our hearts. We are travellers in a fleeting world to be able to straddle it without a lot of pain let’s make friendship our constant criterion.” For those who need a translation 🙂 Have a good day.

  2. I find the bar on the right to follow you! Thanks for commenting on my blog, and my prayers are with your friend with Parkinson’s. God does answer prayer – – – many times when we least expect it, and in the manner we least anticipate!
    Keep up the positive work!
