Be Still

Defeating Depression Through Meditative Prayer

In 1997 I killed myself.

My disembodied spirit floated through hospital corridors. I watched from the ceiling as ER medics pounded on my chest. But God had a different plan and my soul blasted back into my body.

Today I am completely healed from depression. You can also defeat depression! Be Still: Defeating Depression Through Stillness tells my tangled journey from brokenness, prescription drug addiction, demonic oppression, depression and suicide to healing. I describe my meditative prayer process and show you how to also seek wholeness through stillness.

We have become addicted to our ever-present thought chatter. It fabricates the narration of our days, critiquing the people around us, noting offenses, bludgeoning ourselves for perceived flaws, worrying about the electric bill, planning our weekend, assembling our shopping lists. What if we could just make it stop? Stop for a blessed few moments of internal silence? Ten glorious minutes of peace? Taming the incessant babble of our brain is the secret to the deepest joy. It is a key to spiritual awakening and growing closer to God. It is the key to a victorious depression-free life.

But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.
Job 12:7-10

Deuteronomy 16"Observe the month of Abib and celebrate the Passover to the LORD your God, for in the month of Abib the LORD your God brought you out of Egypt by night." Deuteronomy 16:1God instructed the Israelites to observe many celebrations and feast days throughout the year to commemorate all the great miracles He had done for them. It is important to observe and remember the amazing things God has done for us as well. This is why we celebrate Easter and Christmas. But it is so easy to forget, to let Easter become just a day for food, candy and egg hunts... and Christmas just about Santa and gifts. It is us to us to consciously remember God's most amazing gift to us -- Jesus Christ.("Remember the Time" painting by Laur Iduc) ... See MoreSee Less
