  Why Has God Allowed Depression In My Life?   In today’s Faith Fact, we will tackle the question, “Why has God allowed depression to be a part of my life?”   Some Christians maintain that continued depression is caused by a lack of faith. But is this true?  Let’s examine the facts.  I always ask people who hold this position, “What verses in the Bible tell you this?”...

  Did you know that repressed anger can be one of the causes of depression?  I’m not sure how many depressed men and women have sat across the desk from me and poured out their life’s story.  I do know, however, that often that story included hurt, bitterness and anger.  “And have you forgiven the person(s) who hurt you?” I would ask.  Almost always, the answer was “no.” ...

  Splashed across the front page of the October 10, 2014 issue of USA Today, the statistics stood out for all to see.  Concerning causes of death from 2000-2011:  Heart disease – down 16%; Prostate cancer – down 8%; Breast Cancer – down 2%; Colorectal cancer – down 8%; HIV/AIDS – down 42%.  Sounds good, doesn’t it!  But the cover story didn’t deal with any of these diseas...

Blog:  Your Best Friend When You’re Depressed   When I say “best friend,” I’m talking about other than Jesus Christ.  As we’ve already seen numerous times in these blogs and Faith Facts, Jesus loves you at all times and forever . . . even when you’re depressed and can’t “feel” his love.  That’s the time when it’s especially important to not listen to your emotions.  They...
The Powerful Weapon Against Depression Few People Use   I wasn’t very good in school with science classes.  However, I do remember learning about kinetic and potential energy.  Every object – and person – contains both.  Potential energy, of course, refers to the energy that could be generated by the object.  Kinetic energy, on the other hand, is energy that is actuall...

From the title of this blog, you might think I’m talking about schizophrenia, but you’d be wrong.  I’m actually referring to the many voices clamoring for our attention every day.  The internet, television, magazines, books, music – they all want you to listen to them.  If you’re not careful, you’ll find yourself, at the best, wasting time listening to a voice that doesn’t really ha...

Years ago I heard a business leader say that the difference between those who are successful and those who aren’t is this:  successful men and women do whatever necessary tasks are put before them, even if they don’t feel like doing them.   Don’t get me wrong, I have put off my share of getting unpleasant things done!  In truth, we all are guilty of this at one time or another. &nb...

If you purchased and read our first book, “Conquering Depression,” you might wonder what changes there are in our newest book, “Hope Again.”  Below, you’ll find a quick overview of what’s different, and what’s the same.   First, Bruce and I are different than we were 10 years ago.  Bruce looks a lot older and I look better.  Just kidding!  But in this past decade, we’ve l...

For most of us who fight depression on a regular basis, the title of this blog seems, on the surface, to be a ridiculous statement!  Why would we ever believe that this horrible enemy fighting to consume us could be a gift?  Keep on reading . . . . Not long ago I was asked to be the guest teacher for a fairly large Bible study group.  Made up of mainly senior adults, the majority o...
