FIVE STEPS I FOUND TO HELP IN DEPRESSING TIMES

unhappy golfer behind caddy

The word depression means severe, typically prolonged, feelings of despondency and dejection. Literally to be "pressed" down. Often we allow self-doubt to creep in and this swiftly turns to depression. In the word of God we see Saul depressed because he felt rejected.

A POWERFUL PRAYER FOR THE TONGUE

LET THE WORDS OF MY MOUTH:

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the reminder that on the day of judgement we will give account for every careless word we speak. So Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, our Rock and our Redeemer.

SECRETS IN DATING

It was God who invented marriage after He had created Adam He said, "it is not good for the man to be alone."  It is still not good today for the man to be alone. 

Although man may find it much easier living the single life, for a woman it can be a pain. Unlike the man who is able to have his children whenever he is ready, not so with the woman. She has a specific time in which to do so after which it becomes impossible. Hence many a young woman become very anxious when they find themself single, with no suitor in sight.

WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOU FALL IN LOVE

Devoted hearts, and truthful, loving words, will make happy people and result in happy families. It will exert an elevating influence upon all who come within the sphere of its influence. While women want men of strong and moral characters, men they can respect and love, these traits also need to be mingled with tenderness, devotion, and patience. 

Here are some things which should be considered: 

When a young man meets an attractive young woman for the first time, he is usually shy; which often makes him awkward, sometimes cause him to stutter uttering words that can be very funny. He is often more attentive to the young lady he feels a strong attachment to; often captivated with her appearance and wishes to become better acquainted. As the two persons become acquainted; they are infatuated with each other, and their whole attention is absorbed. Reason can somewhat be blinded, it is therefore important that you give diligence to these things.

A LETTER FROM GOD TO WOMEN

When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being. When I created man, I formed him and breathed life into his nostrils.


But you, woman, I fashioned after I breathed the breath of life into man because your nostrils are too delicate. I allowed a deep sleep to come over him so I could patiently and perfectly fashion you. Man was put to sleep so that he could not interfere with the creativity.

From one bone, I fashioned you. I chose the bone that protects man's life. I chose the rib, which protects his heart and lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do. Around this one bone, I shaped you.... I modeled you. I created you perfectly and beautifully. Your characteristics are as the rib, strong yet delicate and fragile. You provide protection for the most delicate organ in man, his heart. His heart is the center of his being; his lungs hold the breath of life. The rib cage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to the heart. Support man as the rib cage supports the body.

THE EMPTY EGG

 Jeremiah was born with a twisted body and a slow mind. At the age of 12 he was still in second grade, seemingly unable to learn. His teacher, Doris Miller, often became exasperated with him. He would squirm in his seaat, drool, and make grunting noises. At other times, he spoke clearly and distinctly, as if a spot of light had penetrated the darkness of his brain. Most of the time, however  Jeremy just irritated his teacher.

THE ALPHABET PRAYER

Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged by man. Now the story goes, a little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, "I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?"

LETTER TO MY SON


My dear Son, 

I am writing a few things I wish to say to you, the first day I behold your beautiful smile I thank God for you. You will always be my treasured gift! My beautiful jewel, priceless! Today you are a bundle of joy, but tomorrow you will be a handsome noble man.

I pray that God will grant you strength and wisdom; and guide your young feet in the way they should go. Satisfy you with good health and long life, so that you may never be disappointed, or become discouraged when the task of life becomes too much to bear.
