Charles Spurgeon’s Humor | Evangelical Press Association
The other evening I was riding home after a heavy day's work. I felt wearied and sore depressed, when swiftly and suddenly that text came to me, 'My grace is sufficient for thee.' I reached home and looked it up in the original, and at last it came to me in this way. 'My grace is sufficient for THEE.' And I said, 'I should think it is, Lord' and I burst out laughing. I never understood what the holy laughter of Abraham was till then. It seemed to make unbelief so absurd … O brethren, be great believers. Little faith will bring your souls to heaven, but great faith will bring heaven to your souls.

God, Guns and Grits: Charles Spurgeon offers godly advice on battling depression
ain has, in some cases, developed genius, hunting out the soul which otherwise might have slept like a lion in its den. Had it not been for the broken wing, some might have lost themselves in the clouds, some even of those choice doves who now bear the olive branch in their mouths and show the way to the ark.

A third recent HSPH-affiliated study that tracked 50,000 women for 10 years found that those who drank four or more cups of caffeinated coffee per day were 20 percent less likely to develop depression than nondrinkers.

"Ungodly spirits, ignorant of God's ways in bringing his children to heaven, censure broken hearted Christians as miserable persons, whereas God is doing gracious, good work with them. It is no easy matter to bring a man from nature to grace, and from grace to glory, so unyielding and intractable are our hearts." -Richard Shibbes "The Bruised Reed"

Scared | Parchment and Pen
Maybe, these things are true. My dad died in November. It was one of those freak pneumonia things. It all happened so quickly. Though my dad was never much of a mentor (the understatement of the year) and I never saw him on his knees (a nice way to put the absence of spirituality in his life), I am coming to realize how much I depended on him. For what? I don’t know. Perhaps, I just wanted him to be a living dad who could come to my rescue, when I needed him. Rescue from what? I don’t know. Perhaps, it was life, itself. Really, I suppose that I felt that if I was ever found out to be a charlatan, he would still be my dad, and I could still stand on his shoulders. It is amazing to see how much weight we place on dads. How big they are to us even if we never consciously realize it.

RELEVANT Magazine - Five Things We Wish the Church Knew
My friend Len shared with me that, in Eastern cultures, when porcelain breaks or cracks, they don’t restore it like we do in the West. They don’t try to remove any evidence of breakage or cracks. They do just the opposite: apply a lacquer that highlights the crack with gold. In other words, they feature the cracks with gold, which actually adds to the value and gives the piece a story and a unique character.
