Thank you and thank God they show deals suffering and the tenacity of the human spirit. The will to survive and the courage to keep moving forward despite any obstacle with the help of God, who enables us to help each other to provide testimonials to let people know that they're not alone in this shell. The testimony started with me having been a survivor of child abuse well into young adulthood. We also have experts in several fields and inspirational speakers are willing to help us with valuable information. Knowing that education is necessary. Awareness is crucial in comfort is. I do believe we all suffer separate from something and we hope to be a source of healing for each other well despite trying everything God was my only care that other forms of healing are presented as well to service everyone as we know, life can be challenging but there's always someone who cares at least got this only played earlier was well by Taylor Swift and this is my take NSH I get things to the Holy Spirit.

It is an easy following Christ. It takes discipline and sacrifice like a wind that takes years to age. It's well worth it.

Despite the price. Life can be rough like a nice God is always there to guide us right back to him what we belong. If we stand still. He takes the fight. It's like a trophy. When we do what we should that if what we want, he will take her hand. She needs a plan before we were born. Even the gains difficult to see or understand his level guide us like the brightest star. Simply trust the Lord in his commands.

It's the road that will take us home and won't wreck our plans with huge demand. Jesus is Lord and he is God making it work. She's a man. She does provide and give us hope as he leads the way, according to his.

Richard is also the clinical director of Christian counseling associate visit Richard. It's so nice to have you back in the cure. Welcome Peter Richard were still going through the detonate and close salads and stay-at-home orders.

In some places experiencing violence and loss of life, some of which has been shocking to many of us in this has had a tremendous impact on us emotionally as we know these times can be hard for many of us so how can we address despair and fear. Can you give us some hope from a Christian perspective will certainly tell about your almost a year to restrictions.

Many people are and what the squad were to become highly political so everything would you do not agree with the majority. You have a well thought you know your reaction so it becomes buried for Greg all what you will encourage everybody out there the euro as Christians we are to be proved. Followers specially for the codes right now though of so many things you feel that you share with one people may have already really felt very totalitarian control everything about your life, you can help will give up some of the freedoms that we have list relinquishing the will and structural offer. People like there's no one one of the primary solutions right else that I would call the shoes to be a true color. You know good people who truly support you and share what's going on whether politically correct all the kids family environment work to express your opinions and say so just speak up on your blog without the pressure over the fence you have children be politically correct.

You are right now prescription for buddy are all blocked alone and isolated valley becoming of mental health everybody across the board so did God not see blessed peacemakers. It seems likely to become so devices and you know what I would like for us to be more patient to be more tolerant to be forgiving of different perspectives to listen to one another and not just expect one point of view that you believe in having intelligent discussions. I think that would be more productive and hello and because of that, because of all the division and vitriol. Some of us have become spiritually stuck. What did we do in that sense, how we find a way back to our roots. What makes us feel good. The unity you know forgetting and loving and understanding of one another apartment where you be open to express viewpoints with different people where you can what truth and reality out of environment and others people different opinions degree from possible but I think you away from youth out of open the euro. Our people you know like be afraid right all worried or disagreement with you below so there's many areas of the culture right now. I don't think the computer like out of environment very easily upload it out again. What you describe it audiences back to the Scriptures when God said, have no fear, for I have a look on the world and just value is not as say she's been light on this 20 cares and the Lord will never lend the right small impact in our show deals with suffering spirit. I was forced into my abortion. I think I have a choice people to do this twice my heart every Saturday at one Eastern on the Truth Network. He also is a space is so we see this same welcome back. I think testing this is Amy. Remember that you can listen to her usual life through our up cure with amicable or the Broncos just look for the cure gospel from delightful social review sound they displayed was too much to ask by now Warren remember God is not over yet but this my message what I gathered from this section of the song. What are we waiting for doing our time are leeches riding along without reason or rhyme God constantly thinks of us and keeps us near his heart, hoping we make wise decisions. Keeping close should be followed. Part there will be times you might regret that God forgives and we forget when we are made.

Neil and walking grace slowly at God's gentle pace.

It's a little to solve, and not a race to take it easy, but don't delay to keep trying your best, forgives and praying.

It's not too much to ask. You will see I provides the methods shows us how to be one. This is good getting better by looking good like a boy for her portrait of the euro something called okay let you whatever you say, what about the enormous power of God. Are we accepting that he has enough, he blessed in my life. Even when I doubted Julie was that there such thing as depression, can God be enough when it comes to depression Scripture size and some 3418 and 19. The Lord is close to this brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all so Richard, when we are depressed we tend to look for ways to escape, such as dog abuse and alcohol could only exacerbate the problem. This is been going in this pandemic, especially how can we address this issue. Help ourselves and others are.

Oh, the real butter like alcohol, drugs were you really start living things for a little bit but the worst worst place. Researchers shown over the us your quality of people putting people. The church got a lot of good and who could blame people for getting caught up. We always remember the both of you will likely need for world called these two stories we can get what is real but what is you go on beyond the right now.

We really need to get back spiritual heart and motioned to the Scriptures.

Use use the God got deeper level. Always things that we do feel better. Well it's it's it's temporary happiness. It's what some of us may call self medicating myself as guilty of such a thing. I did deal with depression is to take medication, which I no longer do.

Once I discovered God was all I needed that. I did turn to two drugs I had given up alcohol that I was still beeping and I was smoking.

I had a prescription until one day, a piece that you can quit it, God will give you the grace just turn to him and you know what I put God to the test. He surprised me he did. He gave me the grace I quit. November 29. Cold turkey.

Both of them. I was addicted to nicotine since I was 16 and it didn't matter.

I can really surprise us. You don't think that you didn't do without medication.

What you can do without smoking or you can do without beeping will be surprised how much God can do for you because I'm living proof is on his you have God Amy my antidepressant is prayer.

As long as they pray every day and okay no need for therapy. No need for medication. No need for drugs or alcohol or any other forms of escape was to go some syllables needs councils like rich, otherwise you will build job with the right way to go. I guess it is a process and we do need help from each other right, it doesn't just happen overnight guys, yes, took me a long time that you know it. If someone is depressed. What's the best way to help them find strength through God if they may not be aware group. What were your Christian, I would love your you all are so for the radio show. We provide great Christian, for people who are isolated, struggling with the boundaries of the unit, what would you do right now where you're you all will start out there so all I some form of what is one of your family against the pandemic. Barbara sometimes seeks trust Robinson depression and with that, you know, we hope to cultivate leaders in our family were in our church family towards the place. You know the truth will be part of the Bible. All you do things like our views towards bravery of the virtues of heart, timeless truth we can grab hold of right now I feel sorry for ourselves. We need to feel good into Bewley with what is in front of us together in the family can be that kind of thing right now that we value our families are struggling.

The best advice I could give us time to get everyone to pray. Sometimes just you playing alone is not enough.

What helps me is when my family saw the transformation in me. They realize pain was not such a bad idea and sometimes the best ways to the example that really is the best way delete this fearlessly but absolute and will for families to know the difference between situational sadness and major depression so that they know when an intervention is needed. Also something to consider the work and talking about God's impacting our lives. After the short break would love to hear from you close with your question 4:1866 34 through 1866 34 through God in your life you go through any situation.

So still she is Amy, life can bring many difficult situations. Mystic violence addictions, poverty and even sexual abuse by your loved ones welcome Amy, to Saturday at one website was also available. Also, as a video book. Just look for the cure with Amy, but LA earlier I said God gave him the great race. I forgot to mention we have to put in the effort. I was okay with suffering.

Okay this song that just played with lasting lover. Thanks again, and James Arthur this is my take. God is that lasting lover. He picks up where we left off. No need to hide or run for cover everything anything for him today are tough. Only he can save us. He is the ultimate year, he will restore what the enemy has stolen and return our health share when all looks hopeless and no one seems to care. God is that relentless force that loves this the most and is always there.

No one is lost to God, despite what we partake to show us the way home by exposing the truth until we wake. We are discussing the enormous power of God in our lives when we suffer life's challenges and Richard before we started talking about what is the difference between situational sadness and having major depression that here is what I worry about a severe consequence of depression and suicide, and more importantly suicide in adults and children have increased in these pandemic times, especially among school-age children, which is really sad because they're liking the intra-social interaction that they used to have when their schools are closed and you know some of us that are experiencing violence on negative news that seem to have affected us and the despair of the economy that can be pretty challenging. How does Scripture view suicide. The show about Dr. you know you love the bubble of Jesus saw all of the be saved by angels shows the Lord Scripture is clear are larger or sacred God chooses one. We live will be God used more and so we don't have a right to use suicide for Christians is not an option, and so if we are all about Bill and we been working on for you being here of your you know you are under restriction isolated futile reduction truth teller it up. You have that in your heart if you're struggling reach out held up following school euro that primarily use your field don't have a family, reach up your church go the way of that is all suffering right now were suffering. We doubt you give the suffering of war Christian and uphill battle. Go make this your getting through this about bringing glory to the Lord.

Loving those around you. Those that you owe or love them to.

So if you are for kids that might be ill posed by school situation or longer restrictions. Or maybe I was quite situation where they can isolate the front wheel. As Christians we want to see you about Bill will be hard work, or God an opportunity to love those around us and serve hot dog. Now it is not a contract out on his Christians keep on going sir and sometimes it's difficult for us to be truth tellers. If walking around blind.

Oh, we may be unaware the truth I know for a long time. I was blind.

There's things I did not see clearly. I actually had to pray. I had to get close to God.

I had to go back to my roots.

I had to speak to people that knew more than me in the spiritual realm and realize that God is the truth and see is the way and suicide cannot be an option because created us with great thought and great purpose and there is it's it's not the way because God that wasn't his intention, and somebody to me that you know. I asked if God doesn't get give us anything we can handle how people commit suicide and somebody tell me that's because they don't have God they lost hope in God is hope. You only get that bad when you've lost hope when you let despair overwhelm you. And if you have a good relationship with God by praying by doing the right thing by speaking to those who know more than you. By reading spiritual things and trying to get close to God thing. Don't accept despair if you suffering in a different way. You don't let something become too painful or something you cannot handle that.

You see it as a way of growing maybe sanctifying your soul but you can even suffer for the sake of the conversion of sinners and they could use to it.

They these are just ways that those who stay close to God. Do not get this point and eventually got destitute with the light he does clear our minds are able to see more clearly we are able to speak the truth, and as we learn the truth.

Learn to be more understanding and more compassionate of others. The Kurds are, or will start you know if you're ever in a hard spot. There's nobody else to reach out to you.

Please continue to display it goodness throughout the world despite the pain for all to see. We're continuing our conversation with our special guest, Dr. Visser, half showing the tremendous power of God in our lives, helping us to the challenges Richard earlier we talked about family and you know my families are suffering in their experiencing tons of difficulties and mostly divorce that's kind of on the rise during these pandemics. Stress level can be up the roof, one thing that I found helpful. Actually, I got this from cornerstone marriage that this was said in the Bible.

And this is the best way to deal with any relationship did not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12 to we do pray that each person has a spirit of repentance and forgiveness and also bearing with one another and if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other, as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also focus Canadians 13 and do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Philippians 234.

That's why always telling me about this considering others better than yourself is too difficult then just compassion. Yes, and also see how much our father loves us, for he calls his children. First John 31 cell Dr. Richard please let us know how we can help our families when it comes to disarray and divorce right up to the marriage couples out there right now your marriage problem. Say the one for your marriage family is your is your present crisis, don't abandon things that God is giving you letter cannot be moving forward so you you it's really cold out today when start to break your work. You know that this makes me think all time together. You know other so many things were pressured with most situation so long you plan on recreation styles bother you if you mix them up one another.

My marriage what God's given me to go through the family away from the enemy. Once the most in New Orleans accent I met it, we were hit to sometimes the best person that you trust the most could turn on you.

Anyone can fall. And sometimes you think you can take care of any can you need God's help, and there was a point at time that even I felt a little desperate that I turned to God and the more crazy things God the more I prayed, the more increased and pray her neck that will you know on this prayer has to count for something. So eventually it actually made a change in me. I became a better person, more like an exemplary person and the others followed. They do, they allowed me to read them spiritual things. They were okay with praying along with me and God. He works his miraculous ways and you don't know how he works. You might not even see it coming and it might look hopeless but once you trust God she makes things happen and once my family started praying and it allowed themselves to be guided by God. There mission became more clearly and now they saw the things that were wrong were before the one seen them before, and it was just an amazing thing.

What prayer can do and how life can turn around for the better.

You don't even need marriage counseling really you just need God. He just need to turn to prayer. He just need to trust him. He does need to believe that he will do wonderful works in your life and it will happen that I would. You are strong in prayer award transformative marriage problem start with ourselves before the war. No work you know finger-pointing is one finger pointing up or your spouse or on the back porch you love you there prayer people flexion often punch you work, show us away show us how to get out of our own way and got reengaged on a solution.

Just what you describe your work, your life, but it really can't work were smaller lots powerful miraculous is is the most beautiful thing in a relationship is humility and forgiveness.

If we practice them often. We can be peacemakers, so I put soup.
