In the past, I have been told to write about myself and the story of God healed my heart. It also helped that I developed a passion for digging into God’s Word and inner healing. You can see it plastered across my blog site and my YouTube channel. At first, the plan worded out and the Holy Spirit has certainly blessed me in the writing arena.
However, there is a limit to such a plan. People visit blog sites or watch YouTube channels for a simple reason. Does it fit my need or help with a problem? It’s great when the content creator is able to add a compelling story but the content still needs to answer that question. I watch Think Media because they create content that helps me in creating good content. I watch Paul Soares Jr’s videos because of the entertainment value. Do you get the idea?
Where am I going with this train? I would like to invite you to participate in an upcoming endeavor that will bless you, help others and Christianity Explained.
Depression? I know all about it because I dealt with it in the past. If you watched any of my YouTube videos on Christianity Explained then you’ll discover that I’m not most handsome man, around. ;-). I was born with serious disabilities in 1964 and hope was a scarce commodity. People with physical disabilities were generally not given an optimistic future and were relegated to borderline poverty.
I am told that it’s rare for anyone with low vision and a severe hearing loss to go to college. In the 60s, this reality had a lot of truth in it. In addition, I had a lot of other issues in my life. My heart was filled with fear and anxiety over how others perceived me. Where did I get this idea? It did not magically appear.
My Dad had a very negative view of the world and thought people would treat me badly and take advantage of my limitations. He was trying to prepare me for a world that may not be kind to me. Yes, there is a measure truth in this view; however, it’s not a majority viewpoint.
If you want more than I will invite you to read my book, “You Are Not A Lesser Human: An Anthology of Overcoming“. Yes, I did have that poor of an image of myself. It lies very much at the heart of my depression. How did I overcome my depression and how can my story help you?
Keep reading! I’m simply going to share some key points; not the book.
