I thank God Almighty that you ( Pastor Mike), are willing to share your heart with us “sheep “ that get depressed so easily! ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿป‍๐Ÿฆณ I have had a really bad depression since this morning; I finally got outside in the sunshine โ˜€๏ธ this afternoon, which helped alleviate some of my “blues”; but the biggest help was Bro. Mike preaching from the Holy Bible (KJV)!!! I think ๐Ÿค” all this Covid-19 virus separation stuff has done something to me; our church family was/is a ๐Ÿค— huggy family, but I don’t know what we’ll do now since one of our two deacons has died from the Covid 19 virus!!! Mainly, we are an older congregation: mostly over 60 yrs. I can’t envision us not shaking hands nor hugging!!! Right now we are watching our pastor preach outside, while some sit in their ๐Ÿš˜ cars while in church’s parking lot; while others of us watch on Facebook! I don’t think ๐Ÿค” I’ll be “satisfied “ just waving to my church family from our ๐Ÿš™ ๐Ÿš— cars!!! I am very “down in the dumps” about this whole “social distancing” I wonder when the “liberal, self-centered, socialists, college-age “me-firsters” will get together to “eliminate” the “worthless eaters”; they contribute nothing “positive” to society-people; the mentally unfit or deranged people should be destroyed; those “Harvard University” professors of education tell us “common folk” that we’re not bright-enough to raise or teach our children, etc. When will another Hitler, or Mussolini, or Margaret Sanger ( started Planned Parenthood/ Murder the less-than-human races: Gypsies, Jews, fundamentalist โœ๏ธ Christians, or any group of persons that any liberal hates, rise to power in this “socialist”: Bernie Sanders; or Nancy “Antoinette” Pelosie rattle her septer at Congress and insist on her way, or take the walk to the highway which will probably lead to ? “Camps”; “boxcar/ trains”; “showers” with NO water ๐Ÿ’ฆ nor ๐Ÿงผ soap; “furnaces: gas / electric?” Etc. Those who refuse to learn from history are bound to repeat it!!! There is NO new thing under the ๐ŸŒž sun! When will we ever learn?

This is good but gives an unbeliever struggling with anxiety/depression a false sense that they are God's when they are not.
