This morning my heart sunk getting the news of another young man diagnosed with brain cancer. This is the second family in the last couple of weeks that their so has been diagnosed with brain cancer. Please Pray for Mark Price. I have ministered over too many families that have had loved ones commit suicide. So very tough……My heartaches for all.
This is going to be a tough Christmas for many people that Sharon and I know personally. My sister Deb lost her husband Paul this past June in a farm accident. So many hurting.
The world is at war. There is much anxiety all around the globe. So many innocent people are being killed.
We are to be a praying people.
The following report comes from CBN:
As headlines of the terror attacks on October 7th in Israel continue to flood the news, these and other reports of innocent people suffering can evoke feelings of emotional anguish that can be difficult to process. Mental health experts say while it’s not unusual to feel traumatized while learning about the events unfolding in the Middle East and elsewhere, it doesn’t have to stay that way.
Christian counselor Dr. Jennifer Londgren, author of A Guide to Mental & Emotional Wellness: Biblical Wisdom, Practical Principles, Clinical Insight told CBN News it’s important to stay informed about important events happening around the world while maintaining good mental health.

“If Jesus Christ came to this planet as a model of how we ought to live, then our goal should be to act like Jesus. Sadly, few people consistently demonstrate the love, obedience and priorities of Jesus. The primary reason that people do not act like Jesus is because they do not think like Jesus. Behavior stems from what we think – our attitudes, beliefs, values and opinions. Although most people own a Bible and know some of its content, our research found that most Americans have little idea how to integrate core biblical principles to form a unified and meaningful response to the challenges and opportunities of life. We’re often more concerned with survival amidst chaos than with experiencing truth and significance.” George Barna.
