Find Rest & Healing with Us (5)

Depression, a weighty and unfortunately common term. Unless you’ve experienced it, it’s hard to fully comprehend its impact. We’ve all faced moments of sadness, feeling hopeless, and questioning life’s purpose.  At times, we might wonder where the love in this world has gone, no matter how much we strive. In those moments, it can feel as if we’ve lost the capacity both to love and to be loved. Sometimes we think we’re doing better, but then that dreadful feeling comes back, threatening to consume us.

Equally heartbreaking is to witness our loved ones suffocate under the weight of negative thoughts day after day. It’s a battle that takes place within the mind, making us feel powerless to change the situation. How can we fix something so intangible?

The journey through grief is often a dark and twisted path, but it is along this path that God’s comforting light shines brightest. One such instance can be seen in the testimony about Lulu (see synopsis below), a woman of faith, whose battle with multiple health conditions culminated in a painful loss for her life. The sister’s guilt, initially deepened by a harsh exchange with Lulu, transformed into a source of comfort and understanding through shared faith, which God manifested in symbolic dreams.

Similarly, another church sister witnessed God’s merciful compassion through her mother’s battle with terminal liver cancer. Through a journey marked by fervent prayers, divine teachings, and mysterious signs of God’s love, she recognized the tranquil passing and radiant visage of her mother as an answered prayer and testament of faith. This experience did not intensify her mourning but rather inspired her to celebrate her mother’s life and spiritual legacy, signifying God’s divine comfort in the face of loss.

But please know, we are not alone on this journey. We have God! Within God, there is warmth and compassion waiting to embrace you, and a glimmer of hope even in the darkest of times. Our Heavenly Father created us and loved us unconditionally. Psalm 147:3 (NIV) tells us, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” We just need to humble ourselves and surrender to God. Trust in Him to carry our burdens. “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7, NIV). Let Him enter your life and experience His infinite love and discover the true purpose of your existence.

Join us as we turn to the One who understands our struggles better than anyone else. Together, we can find a path to healing and rediscover the joy of love’s embrace once more. We sincerely invite you to attend our Fall Evangelical Service and Spiritual Convocation from September 14 to 17, 2023 at the True Jesus Church.

This condensed version of a church sister’s testimony centers on her profound journey of faith and familial love during her mother’s battle with terminal liver cancer, realized through fervent prayer sessions, divine lessons about love and forgiveness, and mysterious manifestations of God’s compassion. She recounts the touching acts of kindness her mother discreetly performed in her lifetime and how her passing – painless and with a miraculously radiant countenance – signified God’s answered prayers, her virtuous life, and an enduring testament of faith, inspiring the sister to celebrate her mother’s life and spiritual legacy rather than mourn her loss.

A church sister grapples with deep depression and feels an unnerving sense of God’s absence, leading to a struggle of faith and self. Through enduring this struggle, finding solace in scripture, and eventually overcoming her depression with God’s help, she realizes her experience has prepared her to offer empathy and aid to others suffering from depression, giving her trials a newfound purpose, and meaning.

This condensed version of testimony relates the painful journey of Lulu, who courageously battled several health conditions, including breast cancer, a brain cyst, and lung cancer, but ultimately succumbed to her illnesses. It also shares the emotional struggles of the narrator, who grappled with guilt over a heated exchange with Lulu, experienced symbolic dreams after her sister’s death, and found solace and understanding through their shared faith.
