Depression: Are You Ready?


The Bible is clear concerning the condition of mankind and the journey that all citizens of earth will take, whether saved or unsaved and it is this. Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble (Job 14:1). Never gloss over the fact that as a citizen of earth your days will be FULL with trouble. Let that settle in your mind. Don’t expend energy on it. Don’t fight it. It is not up for debate. Your life WILL be FULL of trouble. The quicker you agree with this statement the easier your journey on earth will be. You add to the trouble by resisting the truth. Now once you have that settled, your expectation will be true and you open the door for joy to enter your life.

Now as a believer in Jesus Christ, the trouble has an expiration date. It ends in paradise. Now before you get to paradise, your mind must be on Jesus. Listen to Luke 10:40-41 “But Martha was distracted by all the preparations to be made. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her to help me!” “Martha, Martha, the Lord replied, “you are worried and upset about many things. But only ONE thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, and it will not be taken away from her.” Martha was depressed. Why? She made mountains out of ant hill and she alone had a burden placed on her back that she alone had to carry. A burden SHE placed on herself. Jesus did not. Mary did not. The disciples did not. Martha put the shackles on and hooked herself up. She connected herself to a weight that Mary did not have. Why? Mary understood that only ONE thing matters. Her relationship with Jesus. When other things crowd the ONE thing that matters, you have a a burden of idolatry that you alone must cast off. No one else can do it. Mary did not have an issue, Martha did. So its Martha’s responsibility to take the yoke off her neck and make Jesus the ONE thing that matters.

Three Sentenced for Using Jumper Cables to Strangle Friend Who Was Overdosing

Three people who pleaded guilty to killing their overdosing friend by strangling him with jumper cables were sentenced to prison Wednesday in Pennsylvania, according to multiple reports.

Preston Layfield, Tyler Mirabelli, and Amanda Wayda all pleaded guilty in August to third-degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Joshua Rose, reports WNEP.

Police said at the time of the trio’s arrest that Rose was suffering an overdose when the trio got into a truck with him, drove him down Interstate 81 and strangled him with jumper cables before dumping his body over an embankment in a wooded area.

Before dumping Rose’s body, the trio stopped for gas, putting sunglasses and a hat on Rose so he wouldn’t be recognized, the AP reported.

The outlet reports that Layfield strangled Rose while Mirabelli drove the truck, and that Wayda was Rose’s ex-girlfriend.

Because of the multiplication of wickedness , the love of most will grow cold (Matthew 24:12). Because judgment is not being enforced, men are set in their ways to do evil.

PICTURED: The wife, step-daughter and her boyfriend shot dead in their home on Thanksgiving night by ‘gentle’ Virginia youth pastor

A youth pastor from Virginia was arrested Thanksgiving night after he allegedly killed three people, police say.

Christopher R. Gattis, 58, was found at the Chester home when officers reported to the scene where his wife, Jeanett Gattis, 58, her daughter, Candice Kunze, 30 and the daughter’s boyfriend, Andrew Buthorn, 36, were shot dead.

Startled neighbors heard the gunshots just before midnight.

When officers scoped the scene, they discovered the women’s bodies inside the home and the man’s, in the front yard.

There is no place of safety. You must be ready to die where ever you go. Your church, your home, the mall, the school, on vacation. People are being killed in every place, so having relationship with Jesus is very important. The end of your life is only a bullet, a fall, a crash, a sickness, etc. away.

Millions Of College Students Are Using Their Bodies To Pay Off Student Debt

Americans owe more than $1.3 trillion to the federal government and private lenders for borrowing money to go to college. That’s more than two and a half times what they owed a decade ago, according to Pew, and it’s thanks to higher-than-ever enrollment numbers and rising college tuition costs.

The student debt crisis in the US has gotten so bad, there’s a growing group of young women — and some men — who are taking an unconventional approach to paying for college. Christina, a 29-year-old Sugar Baby and MBA student living in Las Vegas, talked to Business Insider about her experience. She’s received over $90,000 for education-related costs.

Through dating websites like SeekingArrangement.com, Sugar Babies, as they’re called, partner up with wealthy, often older, men who want to spend money on them.

Some 2.5 million Sugar Babies identified as students in 2016 on SeekingArrangement.com. Many of these Sugar Babies turned to the site to find someone who will pay for their education so they can graduate debt, and worry, free.

This form of prostitution is more palatable because it is wrapped inside a dating experience. The women are often taken on dates, bought gifts, before sexual intercourse takes place. They are also on tap to answer calls at any time at the request of the sugar daddy. Feminism has created a new beast. Independent? Not really? Women still needing men without the connection and commitment of marriage, but now relegated to a human barbie doll.

 

A Teen Killed Herself After Being Tormented By Rumors That An Ex Had Shared Intimate Photos Of Her

A 15-year-old girl killed herself after being plagued by rumors that an ex-boyfriend had posted intimate photos of her on social media and incessant bullying from classmates about her hair — and then a photo of her dead body was leaked to a popular messaging app.

Karina Saifer Oliveira, who lived in Brazil, seemed like a typical teenager. Her parents said she was smart and wanted to study law. They said they had no idea that she was thinking of suicide.

It is the parents responsibility to arm your ignorant children of the dangers of dating and the parameters of which they should engage to stay safe. They should be shown my blog or others with these examples of children who engage in child porn, because intimate photos of a fifteen year old is child porn. They should understand that the countless photos of child porn online and porn in general is made to look glamorous, but the effects are damaging.

The only person that should see your naked body should be your husband. The internet is filled with naked rich women and it seems like sexy selfies is cool, but now look at these same rich women and their accusations of sexual harassment for selling sex. There is truth to the law of attraction, although it is a spiritual thing. There is no reason for this behavior and parents should inform their children of what happens to people who perform this. Let them learn from others.

If you take care of the root, the branches die.
