We Chose Poorly

I have heard many people ask the question “Why does God allow suffering in the World?”  This question used to bother me, but I started to ponder it a bit and found that God doesn’t allow suffering, We caused our own suffering because we chose poorly at the beginning.  When Adam and Eve were in […]

I am free

There is a song by Casting Crowns called “Set Me Free”. It is a song that speaks to my heart in a powerful way.  It is a song that God put into my life at a time when my world was so dark I didn’t know if I would ever see light again.  My depression […]

Renewal

Romans 12:2 is said to be the verse for mental wellness.  It says “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to rest and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will” (NIV). So what does […]
