Physical and Emotional HealingHealing (Physical-Emotional):  When the body breaks down, it rightly cries out for our attention. Displaying a tremendous heart of compassion, Jesus healed everyone brought before Him. He didn’t just do it once. He did it on every recorded occasion. This shows us our Father’s heart as well: No matter how or why we get sick, God wants us healed! Because Jesus is the same today as He was yesterday, you can count on it that He is just as ready and willing to heal us now as He was then.

The Lord also wants to heal us from the inside out. Both Solomon and Jesus declare that the important issues of life flow out from the depths of our hearts. Practically all of us carry stuff from our past which can spill over and influence, even control, the new life that Jesus wants to give us. Emotions that overwhelm us in the present (like fear, anxiety, hurt feelings, anger, depression, etc.) are things God wants to free us from. Go for this glorious liberty!

What we need is for the right answer to spring up from the hidden depths of our heart when the pressures and pains of life pile upon us. And when we see ourselves struggling under them. For the person who believes in God…

Depression? Emotional Pain Isn’t the Problem!

Pain is not depression. This is not widely understood, but should be shouted from the housetops. Emotional pain is not the same thing as depression! It will liberate you to understand this one truth. I am well aware that this needs careful explaining. Depression in general is murky and the “pit of depression” is a very dark place indeed. Little light penetrates. One’s whole perspective gets captured by the pain and controlled by hopelessness. I know, because I tumbled down into…

Calm Down

Calm Down! Catch the Fox, Not the Dogs

Here’s how to calm down when you get spun up. I’m talking about those times when your old issues are really beating the drums. Things that you thought were over are suddenly back on your brain and hounding your heart with fresh angst and urgency. You’re trapped in a maze of past issues—just as thoroughly as you once were. Will there ever be an end to it? It’s driving you crazy! Relax. This is a typical ploy of your enemy…
