“How Depressing Is It?”

It is a documented fact that  Depression affects some 14 million adults each year in America.  Some depression can come from sin, but not all depression.  Depression can often be attributed to damaged emotions that run deep and are quite complicated, relating to many aspects of our lives including our temperament, physical makeup, body chemistry, glandular functions, emotional patterns and learned behavioral feelings and concepts.  Depression can lead us to God…or away from God.

    O Lord It’s Hard to be Humble: The Lie of Perfectionism
    Perfectionism is the constant and nagging feeling  of never doing well, never being good enough.   It carries with it deep self-depreciation and anxiety, and is often accompanied by a great legalism.  However, the Good News is  the way to God is not the path of perfect performance.  Instead, it is a way of grace.

    The Cure for Low-Self Esteem: God’s Transforming Joy
    What does healthy self-esteem look like?  The first component is a sense of belonging, a sense of being loved.   The second component: a sense of  real worth and value.  The third: the inner feeling of  “I can do this.”   If we allow ourselves to be transformed by the Holy Spirit,  God will enable us to see ourselves as He sees us: as His greatest JOY!

    Life is Too Short to Feel Guilty: A Look at Guilt and Grace
    The emotion of guilt plays an important role in our lives. What pain is to the body, guilt is to the spirit.  Sin brings about guilt because sin is a wrong we have committed against God or someone else.  Sometimes people become prisoners of guilt which not only wreaks havoc on our relationships but leads to stress, anxiety and resentment.   Only God’s saving grace can free us from guilt, helping us to receive God’s forgiveness and practice that forgiveness toward others.
