The Cure for Anxiety

Historians will probably call our era “the age of anxiety.” Though we have it easier than our forefathers, we have more uneasiness. Inwardly we are more anxious. Callused hands were the badge of the pioneers, but a furrowed brow is the insignia of modern men and women.

Struggling After Losing Job

We’re really struggling financially, and it’s all I can think about. My wife still has a part-time job, but I lost my job a couple of months ago and I just can’t find anything. We pray and pray, but nothing happens. I’m beginning to wonder if God even cares.

Struggling After Losing Home

We lost our home and almost everything in it to a fire a few months ago, and it has been devastating. I know the Bible says we ought to give thanks in every situation, but how can God expect us to thank Him for this? I’m not sure if we’ll ever recover.

Depressed After Losing Everything

We lost almost everything we owned in a flood a few months ago, and it has really been hard on us. I know I ought to have more faith that God is going to sort it all out, but the truth is we’re depressed and almost overwhelmed. Why did God let this happen to us?

Finances: An Issue of the Heart

As much as moviegoers enjoy the gripping suspense of a startling whodunit, after the popcorn is gone and the lights come up, most will admit that they don’t like life’s real surprises, especially the kind that come in the form of an unexpected bill, a plea for a loan from a relative, or financial worries due to an accident or illness.

If God is for Us …

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once preached a sermon on the terror of the disciples during the storm on Galilee. He ended with a sharp conclusion: “I do not care what the circumstances may be, the Christian should never be agitated, the Christian should never be beside himself, the Christian should never be at his wit’s end, should never be in a condition in which he has lost. … It implies a lack of trust and confidence in Him.”

From the Desk of Billy Graham: ‘My Heart Goes Out to You’

Who looks forward to turning on the news these days? All we seem to hear about are problems. People are losing jobs and savings. A person can get depressed listening to it all, and many people are fearful.

    What a year. In March my wife said our marriage was over, in June I was told I had skin cancer and in Sept I had to file bankruptsy.. Talk about a lot to pray over. As of now we are separated and I just don’t know how my prayers for The Lord to soften her heart are going to work out, the cancer is treatable and I must admit its nice not to have to give my entire paycheck ( a blessing in itself) to others. And it has shown me what mistakes I have made and how vital it is to not take The Lord or life for granted. And what suffering that I have never known before is. I have many faults as a Christian and as a person (which really is one and the same) but I will proclaim to one and all that The Lord has brought me the only hope and strength that I do have. On my good days which are starting to come around. Despair is such a horrible thing to suffer and a wonderfull thing to give to God. Pray for me.
