dealing with depression
In December 1996 at the age of 32, I accepted the Lord Jesus into my life.  While the Angels were rejoicing in Heaven, Satan and his tormentors were not too happy and got to work right away trying to steal, kill and destroy my life.  CONTINUE READING

THANKFUL FOR THE HARVEST

 

"And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper"
(Psalm 1:3)

Let’s be real--it’s hard to think about harvest in the middle of November with winter approaching and the first snowfall already on the cold ground. It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were all sitting in our backyards or walking through the park, enjoying the warm air and colourful leaves still on the trees. And then we woke up one morning and glanced out the window and there it was--a new season! The autumn crops all harvested and shipped off to market, leaving behind empty fields of hard, black earth. And here we are, writing devotionals about “the harvest”. This is where perspective makes all the difference. The chilly month of November is already half way through, which leaves December, January and February to endure--three short months and then comes the spring of March. Just like that. With the right perspective, the winter is already almost over! And then the cycle of sowing and reaping begins again. Winter is a hard season for most of us, with it’s dark nights, freezing temps and severe snow storms. Some people suffer depression during the winter months where the trees become dormant, the birds stop their singing, and it seems even the sun goes into hiding. And we’re writing devotionals about “harvest”? Perspective. As a pastor, my greatest joy is to see “dead dreams, dead visions and dead souls becoming alive by the Spirit of life. The truth is, the leafless trees and songless birds and sunless skies have not died, they are very much alive and the life-giving warmth of spring reveals a splendour of new birth that could only come through the deadness of winter. God will deliberately take you through a season of “death” where all seems lost, dark, lifeless and aimless, but heaven’s perspective reveals just the opposite--He is preparing you for fruitfulness like you have never known--and it requires the “winter season” to bring it to pass! That is the making of an abundant spiritual harvest that thrills my heart as I witness God resurrecting life out of death in those He plans to use mightily in His present and coming Kingdom! Make God’s perspective your perspective. This is the season of a spiritual harvest of life and fruitfulness--He makes all things new! Amen!
