Video: New Year’s Resolution, 2009

posted by Beyond Blue

Ah yes, that time of year again when we promise ourselves all kinds of things. I’m not going to fall into the same trap I did last year, of making three very detailed resolutions. Instead, I’m going to aspire to attain a very vague goal.

    Hi Therese,
    God bless you and thank you for the courage you have (God given) to put your journey out here. I was diagnosed BP in July of 08, I’d like to chat…as for the resolution to trust God, I am with you all the way. I commented to a friend last summer that I wanted to start living by faith. Let me say, God heard me. My husband has been unemployed (he is a carpenter) since July when his boss folded the biz and split town trying to escape prosecution. We have never gone a day without food, our landlord dropped the rent from $500.00 to $200.00 without us asking (God arranged that), my best friend just gave us her car (we have been w/out a vehicle since 2005!) He rewards the faithful, so let this be encouragement to you…you are on the right path!! Praise God! In His love, HC

Can I Say I’m a Son or Daughter of Christ and Suffer From Depression?
In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, we read: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” What if we aren’t glad, we aren’t capable of rejoicing, and even prayer is difficult? What if, instead, everything looks dark,
