REMEMBER: If you feel hopeless, helpless, and carry some guilt and shame, it is highly advisable for you to contact a mental health help line in your country of residence. Or better still, go to see your primary health care provider like a GP and share with them how you feel. If you feel so distressed before, during, or after this program call your local emergency line. Do you know how to call your emergency service like an ambulance in your local country, city, or town? For example, in Australia this is triple zero ('000') and in America is nine 911. And remember, God loves you, and so do we!

Biblical Psychology - S1E5 - Depressed and Emotionally Disorganised ft Luke McCann

Depressed and Emotionally Disorganised ft Luke McCann

“He said, ‘we shut the gate’, I was like, ‘Oh, what?!”

“I remember looking at the window and saying, ‘Lord, you know, there must be a reason why I’m here God… if there is God,… show it to me on this trip” “My first instinct was, let me call up Lillian”

“Emotionally I was like depressed”

“I was so empty because I was missing something, I guess, in the spiritual sense”

From emotionally disorganised to fulfilled… Luke McCann speaks to us about his state of shock, and skepticism. From being emotionally depressed to life fulfilment…

Character Building - Killing Pathfinders - The Unlikely and Stoppable Pathfinder

Killing Pathfinders - The Unlikely and Stoppable Pathfinder

Character building ideas where everything was against all odds...

For I am certain that not death, or life, or angels, or rulers, or things present, or things to come, or powers, Or things on high, or things under the earth, or anything which is made, will be able to come between us and the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” - Romans 8:38-39

You will face struggles and obstacles… supernatural forces will try to stop you, but as you contend to this influences, supernatural help will come to you. All the intelligences of heaven are in God’s army, and more than just angels are in these ranks. God Himself is there leading, The Holy Spirit representative of Jesus Christ here on earth was sent to you today to make you unstoppable.

God’s hands are never tied. His message is never muted. No matter what opposition is thrown in its path, when the Pathfinders and Adventurers are what Christ intends them to be, it will be flat-out an unstoppable force for God.

I have chosen to be part of God’s unstoppable pathfinders team for Christ!

What about you?

Biblical Psychology - S1E4 - SPECIAL EPISODE - Self-Care, Gaming, and the GoYe Boardgame You Want at Home ft. Kyle Morrison (Adventist on Fire podcast)

Self-Care, Gaming, and the GoYe Boardgame You Want at Home ft. Kyle Morrison

Adventist on Fire Podcast - #GoYe 

Romans 12:1-2 says: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Sometimes having self-care is perceived a selfish… but we could also see it the opposite way. In fact, self-care forms an important part of being fit and able to serve others.

Join Dr Danzie as he uncovers aspects of self-care with Kyle Morrison from the Adventist On Fire Podcast and the new adventist-related project that you will certainly want to be involved in! #TMI
