    Thanks Waylon. Your last post spoke directly to me. Although the Lord healed me from a long painful illness I’m still dealing with residual problems that tend to cause bouts of depression. I know God is there and will take care of me. Your blog inspires me and is very uplifting. I pray you and your family will continue to receive God’s blessings and strength from him to be our good shepherd.

    Steve, I am thrilled that you find this helpful. That makes the effort worthwhile. We all deal with these issues from time to time and in varying degrees. May God bless you today.

    Your post was a great comfort to me today. I am always consumed with fear although I have no rational reason for being afraid. I was recently told that the message “Do Not Fear” is in the Bible over 300 times. Your post reminded me once again that God does not want me to be afraid and I am going to keep the Bible verses that you quoted today close to my heart. Thank you.

      I find Scripture helps me deal with most everything in life. May God bless you.

    I am serving at a church in Virginia and like most churches the carnal internal politics just gets at me…and I’m only the Associate Pastor….but your words were from the Lord and they encouraged me! I miss South LA sometimes for sure too!!

    I have to thank Pastor Jeff Ginn for sending me this website. The Lord’s timing is just wonderful. Pastor Jeff knows my situation and right now I am going through a rough time. I have had depression for many years and I am currently being treated for it. I have a family that doesn’t understand and really doesn’t care to. Thanks for your encouraging words. I know the Lord is with me every step of the way, even through the struggles.

    Depression is really hard and frankly most people don’t understand it. I am thrilled that you are giving your best to handle it and that you have good people like Pastor Jeff around you. So thankful that you found encouragement in my post.

Verse of the Day

For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. — 1 Peter 2:15-16 (NIV)
