Great Sermon! Great sermon, I thank God everyday that I am healed from depression and anxiety .Rom .8:1
Great Sermon! Thank you for that sermon. I wish more pastors had this insight. I avoided churches for years because too many people have the idea that because of my social phobias and depression I must be guilty of sin or not really saved saying something like, Jesus is all you need. If you are struggling you need to confess and repent.
Mental illness is perhaps one of the most misunderstandings in church teaching. I feel you handled it with love and understanding.

Great Sermon! Thank you for this sermon. It's done lovingly and with understanding. It is hard to be understood as a Christian with ongoing depression, and you do understand the effects depression has on sufferers. My heart was lightened while listening and I do feel like there is hope again. Thanks and God bless you.

Great Sermon! Wonderful message. I wept with gratitude to the Lord as I listened. Thank you.
What a loving sermon Thank you sooo much for your message about depression. It helped to think just one thing. And that is to know Jesus is walking with me. All this time i've beaten myself for not being good enough because i slowly losing my energy to serve Him and and there's a terrible guilt and shame. But knowing Jesus still loves me, it gave me hope rather than pushing myself. This gives me hope to serve Him again. Your sermon didn't judge us but you gave us the peace that it's okay not to be okay. Jesus will lift us up no matter what. Thank you so much. May God use your sermons to reach out for people who suffers mental illness and to help destroy the stigma of this illness.
