Our new series is Simple Thoughts. In it, we will be exploring a few of the simple thoughts I have had over these last few months. The first of these is “The Better Part” and was inspired by Jesus’ visit with Martha and Mary. What causes us anxiety? How do we deal with anxiety? What problems do we take to God? Which ones should we take? Do we stop to get the better part of what God offers us? These are some simple thoughts in complex times.

Our scripture reading for today comes from Jeremiah 17:5-8, Philippians 4:4-7, and Luke 10:38-42.

I’ll get around to that in a moment. For now, let me make something clear: depression is a very difficult thing that impacts nearly every facet of life. Continue reading “Struggles with Depression”
