In the past couple of years since the COVID-19 pandemic, people are dealing with the effects of great loss. Not only the loss of a loved one but some even lost their financial security. In fact, most of us around the world are working to ‘rise from the ashes,’ so to speak.
But that my friends, has been much easier for some than others. That is to say, for the others, it has been extremely difficult. Because depression and hopelessness have taken over their lives. Oh, but there is peace and hope that is readily available for all who will receive it. Hence, this podcast episode — THE PROMISE: Christ Makes All Things New.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
David was like many of us who have experienced a deep depression and begun to lose hope. You realize you need help when those constant drowning thoughts flood your mind of everything hopeless.
So, David expressed his need for God’s help for direction and protection. He wasn’t ashamed to admit he’d come to the end of his rope. It was at that moment David remembered he had an ever-present HELP in Almighty God. Besides, God had done it before, and surely He could do it again.
The frequency of suicide and murder-suicides have been in the headlines now more than ever. For that reason, it makes you pose the question, ‘What are people thinking?’ Let’s keep in mind, our thoughts are important to our everyday living.
Whatever we meditate on, most often affects our movement through life. In other words, we shouldn’t allow negative thinking to take over our lives. Because continual negative thoughts can lead to negative behaviors.
