WILMINGTON, NC, January 31, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Depression is a very broad problem that manifests in many different forms. It affects a huge percentage of the population, both in the US and worldwide. The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that over 16 million of adults in the US alone experienced one major episode of depression in 2016. The World Health Organization's estimate comes in at 300 million people worldwide. Our resources have been stretched to the breaking point and everyone - from teachers to counselors to psychologists to parents and grandparents - struggle to uncover real solutions to this overwhelming challenge.
What is the answer?
What we might find surprising is the fact that the answer to any form of depression is available to everyone today and, in fact, has been available for centuries. Terry Christian, author, teacher and speaker, provides that answer in his latest book, 'What Did Jesus Say... The Seven Messages From The Master'. Terry's message is crystal clear.
"What would Jesus say about depression, PTSD, Bipolar Disorder or anxiety attacks? The first thing JESUS would say is, 'Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.'- Matthew 11:28-30
"Depression, PTSD and other mental issues are real and if we allow it, it divides us and we become 'double-minded' in our thinking about our life experiences, whether in combat, (military) or abuse in the home or tragic real-life events and sometimes its caused by self-abuse too. Jesus said, 'These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.' -John 16:33
"While our mental issues are real, let's remember God is real too and when the mind accepts God, then all things are possible with God and it can change everything.
"A 'divided' mind will not let the person direct their own life. Our mind is the one thing we can influence, or it will influence us. What we don't conquer in our mind, we must serve in life, and what we do conquer in our mind, must serve us in life. The more we 'think on purpose', with a purpose and for a purpose, the more we'll achieve that purpose. Jesus Said. 'Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.' - Matthew 12:25
"The only thing greater than our mind, is our spirit where our beliefs reside. Whatever we believe is true, our mind accepts as true. When we argue for our limitations then sure enough, they're ours and that's why one person can overcome, what another cannot. Misery and heartache both love company because it makes them more comfortable. The same is true for those who seek love and truth and have been healed because they have in common that 'divine healing' is real so our circle of influence does influence us – get around like minded people.
"Whatever we confront in our mind that troubles us will diminish in power, and whatever we let confront us and stir up fear, worry or sadness will increase in power.
"If you truly desire to be healed, then consider these 3 mental truths.
#1- We talk to ourselves around 800-1200 words a minute (called thinking or self-talk) and what we think impacts our life both good or bad. That's why some people can get so 'sad or violent' and destroy themselves in one minute or become excited, inspired and change for the better in one minute.
#2- Our nervous system (controlling our emotional responses) can't tell if what we're thinking is 'really happening' or just vividly imagined. That's why TV, movies, books and life-events are so impacting on our emotions. Whoever replays in their mind the events that bothered them or inspired them, their nervous system often reacts as if it's really happening again and in truth, its only in our imagination.
#3- The major key to our emotional or physical healing is what we 'say to ourselves' and what 'we believe is true'. It's often best to accept the worst and go for the best by seeking healing and restoration from God our creator."
Imagine you're walking down the beach, and you come across a crowd waiting for Jesus to appear and teach them. What would he say? Would he talk about current religious and political conflicts, or would he speak about Love, Light, and Truth? Readers can join in for a walk with Jesus and listen to his words as he shares with them the Seven Messages from the Master. Each spiritual message reveals His teachings that will strengthen and guide anyone to a most peaceful life in Christ.
'What Did Jesus Say' contains over 500 Bible verses spoken directly by Jesus as recorded in the red-letter edition of the New King James Bible, organized by subject. There is no interpretation, opinion or commentary.
Terry Christian's ministry, Foundations For Life, is an online ministry dedicated to helping Christians worldwide. Their calling is to help all Christians mature in their relationship with Jesus Christ. H-E-L-P means Helping Everyone Live Peacefully in Christ.
This brotherly approach allows us to focus on our loving similarities as members of the whole Body of Christ, rather than on our differences in worshiping and practicing our faith, so common today from one church to another or one Pastor to another. The mission is to teach the Way by the Word.
Terry helps families and congregations, as well as clergy, come together, in love, as one body in Christ, in one accord, in order to perform a greater work for Christ. He is dedicated to creating the relationships that build stronger marriages, families and churches.
