FACING DISAPPOINTMENT. ….When Life Doesn’t Turn Out Like You Planned

By this time in my life I imagined I’d be making lots of music, touring the world and writing books. But instead, I am lying in bed with who knows what going on in my body, hardly able to function at times because of dizziness that doctors have no answers for. I’ve been stuck with needles more times than I can count, had test after test and spent money beyond what I even want to look at, to no avail. My hope wavers with varied degrees of exhaustion that I experience weekly depending on the severity. This situation has been going on, not for weeks or even months, but for years with this current episode being the longest and most unrelenting.

You Are in Good Company!

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

Are You Losing Faith in God?

faithThere is a disturbing trend in our world today. Many people are walking away from faith in God. More disturbing, I don’t think it is a trend, I think it is a real dilemma in people’s lives. Because of the tragedies they have seen in our world, they wonder, “How could God exist with all this evil in the world?”. See below, how I broach the subject and I hope it brings you some hope if you are wondering yourself. DON’T LOSE YOUR FAITH IN GOD!

 

Depression is NOT a sin!!

When people of faith struggle with depression sometimes they can feel like they have lost their faith and like they don’t love God as much as people who seem not to have a care in the world. These feelings can cause us to sink deeper into depression and is actually a lie of the enemy to cause us greater distress.
