Cure for Depression/Suicide Attempts

Let’s try Bible Wisdom! We’ve queried weejee boards, psychics, astrologers, soothsayers, lovelorn columnists and even movie and sports stars! We’ve taken the blue, the green and even the multicolored pills and still we are depressed and feel rotten.

News Flash! The Bible tells of your true identity! The Spirit of God offers "to comfort all that mourn; to give beauty for ashes, oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness." Read for yourself in Isaiah 61; verses 2 and 3. "Your body is the temple of God and His spirit dwells within you!" (I Corinthians 3:16).

Why is this not general knowledge? Because the "natural man (generic term) knoweth not the things of the spirit for they are foolishness unto him. Neither can he know them for they are spiritually discerned." This RX for healing is found in I Corinthians Chapter 2, verse 14 of the King James Bible translation. ( Even though the wording has thee’s and thou’s, I find this translation of verses more pithy than in some of the newer translations).

Ideally, parents should instill in their children a sense of worth and knowledge of Bible literature and of a loving God, but many say, "I’ll let my child choose his own religion when he grows up." But what about the child’s formative years? What about all the brainwashing by the media, or the ignorant or false beliefs held by family and peers regarding the spiritual nature of man and the universe?

However, it is never too late to start on the road from despair to joy. How did African leader Mendela survive over 25 years in prison? He had inner strength. Physicist Stephen Hawkins has endured because of his great mind and inner strength. Read true life stories of great overcomers! Get to a supportive church where the power of the Bible is taught, lived and proven in daily life.

Jesus tells of a man who built his house on sand, and when a storm came, "great was the fall thereof." But the man who built his house (his consciousness) on the rock (Truth), no winds or storms could prevail.against it.

Where can I find this parable, you might ask. I will give you more gems of wisdom but YOU open your Bible and find the correct citation for each verse. In other words, get into the Word of Life, get infused with the spirit of Truth, then Hope, Truth and Love will surface which are already embedded within you. Try it!

God did not give you a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.

Be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Trust in the Lord with all thy heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding…he shall direct thy paths.

Whatsoever things are true…honest, just, pure, of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering… against such there is no law. (No law against goodness!)
