Depression is just a symptom of something more profound taking place within a person, within the mind, body, spirit, and soul. In this episode, Meredith talks about the pruning process of depression and the blessings that can come from it. In the Gospel of John, the Lord is referred to as the ‘Gardener’ of our souls. He prunes His children in the act of love to refine us, grow us deeper in His love, and direct us to our God-given call in life. The enemy of God, Satan, wants nothing more than people to give up on life and remain hopeless. The Bible says he comes to kill, steal, and destroy lives. When people fall into such despair during the depression that they contemplate suicide as an option, Satan is achieving his goals of destruction in that person’s life. But, when a person understands the pruning process in the life of a child of God and the power of surrendering to it, they can overcome and win the battle of depression. Meredith also shares the biblical view of suicide, what happens to a person’s soul if one commits suicide, and how to defeat suicidal ideation through Christ. In this episode, you will also hear about three special benefits Charles Spurgeon says you can obtain if you embrace the depression and see it as a blessing in disguise. This episode could change your perspective on depression; you don’t want to miss it!

GPS, global positioning system, has become a technology that everyone uses to find and navigate their destinations. When we make a wrong turn or are heading in the wrong direction, this system alerts us. As a Christian, God has His own navigation and safety system. God is much bigger than just our globe, He is the universal creator of heaven and earth. He has given us a positioning system, within our souls, that is God’s positioning system (GPS). The navigator of this system is given to the third person of the Trinity. Jesus tells us that the Holy Spirit is our comforter, advocate, helper, intercessor, strengthener, and standby. We can call upon our helper at any moment of the day with any need, and he will intercede on our behalf, and direct our course in life. In this episode, you will learn more about the power and person of the Holy Spirit that is given to every believer in Jesus Christ.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a wake-up call for Christians across the world. The ‘pause’ of the entire world from this pandemic has caused many to reevaluate their lives. To reaffirm what is important, and what is not. Many Christians and non-Christians have sensed this pause to be a time of reflection and decision making, and many are seeking answers to issues that our nation and world are facing. Meredith discusses the ancient ‘Laodicean’ way of living and compares it to how many have been living prior to COVID-19. How will one live after this pandemic is over with? And is this a time of a great revival and awakening throughout the world? As people are being forced to have their body temperatures taken to enjoy commerce and travel, is it possible the Lord is calling us to take our ‘spiritual’ temperatures like he did the Laodiceans? This message is an urgent and dire warning to those of us that call ourselves Christians. This pause may be our last chance to get right with God.
