There's a reason for everyday.
Despite the bad and the good, everyday matters.
Friday Matters-October 4, 2019
“Lisa,” I wrote; “I know exactly where you’re at. You’re not a “bad Christian” because you went on medication for your depression. God doesn’t think that. He loves you where you’re at.”
I went on meds for anxiety. It was hard. I felt; “Maybe I wasn't reading the right scripture, praying right or maybe I didn't have enough faith. We live in a fallen world with sickness and disease. The enemy wants us to believe we’re a failure when our sickness is mental but it’s a lie. We’re sick. We need healing and stability and we limit God when we say He can only work on way. It was pride that kept me from wanting to take meds. I wanted to say; “God healed me without medication." Instead He provided a way through meds. It’s a mind battle. It helped me to hear National Speaker Chonda Pierce dealt with meds and depression. She taped a message to her prescription bottle which read; “God loves you Chonda. Take your medicine.” Don’t lose hope. You will get better…everyday.

I heard your message tonight on Life 101.9 as I was on my home from visiting my adult son in the hospital. He suffers from severe depression/anxiety and a couple days ago seriously threatened suicide. Thus he was hospitalized. He has a great faith in God and for so many years thought he and God could handle this and he didn't need medication. Thinking this way almost cost him his life. He has agreed to medication and feeling hopeful now for the first time in a long time. Your message tonight was not a coincidence. It was a God thing. I'm going to share your message with my son. It is perfect. Thank you, Debbie!

Wanda, thank you so much for sharing your heart with me. It is encouraging to know that God never leaves us and loves us right where we are at. I KNOW He works in many different way and sometimes it's through medication for us to become stable to even know and experience His love for us. I pray for you and your son and for God's protection, blessings and healing in the ways God knows best to work and bless our lives. Praise Him. AMEN
