THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD…
“In His presence is fulness of joy, and at His right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
I am so happy you have visited us today. I believe one reason you are here is because the loving, supremely intelligent, purposeful Heavenly Father has seen you, known you, and is answering you, as we have reached out through television, internet, etc., to find you. There is nothing more important to me than to follow God’s call on my life to ‘lead people into the Presence of God”.
So many times in my life, I have experience the amazing presence of the Holy Spirit. This is what I want you to experience. He is absolutely intoxicating, the joy and peace He brings transcends all of the earth’s problems.
And yes, on earth, there ARE problems. I call it the war of worship. There is a battle for your soul (your thoughts, your feelings, your destiny). God, on one hand, who loves you and would do anything to be with you and lead you to a wonderful, fulfilling destiny…but the problem is the kingdom of darkness is also present. This kingdom is bent on destroying your joy, your peace, even your life if possible. I know the battle well. David (in the bible) knew the battle well… You are in this battle now.
Today, we call some of these problems; depression, anxiety, panic attacks. I understand. I have struggled with these. These are not just casual mental challenges. They are brutal and intense. No one understands depression unless they have experienced it. It is not just the ‘blues’…it is black. It is like someone has thrown you in a small dark room and is closing the door. There seems like no hope, no future, no one to help you. It would have you stay in bed, cover your head with the sheets, cringe in pain, or at worst, end it all. But that is not going to happen.
God has given me songs that can bring peace and freedom.
To help with your struggle, I’m giving away one of my albums, “Sacrifice of Praise.” I want you to download all the songs you want…listen to them over and over. I want you now to do all within your power to begin to worship God. Though it may be the last thing you feel like doing…I am urging you to begin to give Thanks To God…gratitude is the first step out of the darkness… It is so powerful, giving thanks can loosen the grip of depression off of your soul.
The most powerful thing you can do on earth is to worship God. To present yourself in faith, to a God that knows you, loves you, doesn’t condemn you, but offers life, hope and joy, is what I want to encourage you to do.
Sacrifice of Praise
Please press the first play arrow, and it will continue to play the whole album of songs.
Even though it’s old fashioned…
I want you to write me a letter. I know it’s a little old fashioned, but it is important. Tell me your story. When you write your thoughts and feelings down on paper, it really helps...like therapy. I will hold it in my hands, read it and pray for you. I will do my best to write you back. I will definitely keep all that you share with me strictly confidential. Please write me today. If you want to help me reach more people, enclose an offering, but mainly I just want to hear from you... Make sure you use my music...it is free"

Where to go from here?
My dear friend.
I wish we could talk and pray together. Depression, anxiety, panic attacks and other mental anguish that is rampant in our culture is not a simple or easy thing to deal with.
There are several factors that can contribute to these problems:
Spiritual influences - we know that there is a kingdom of darkness that DOES NOT LIKE US. Here is my theology: God is good, Satan's kingdom is BAD, don't get them mixed up!
God's word, prayer, good fellowship around the goodness of God is vital to our mental health. Being active in a bible-believing Church and living close to the Bible are so important.
Thoughts/Choices - the best news of all is that neurologists are discovering that we have a choice and we can acquire skills to 'flip' depressive thoughts. We can actually choose life over death, we can choose truth over lies. We do not have to be victims over genetic tendencies. Praise God, there are wonderful gifted counselors who can help you turn your thinking/feeling/moods around.
Biological factors - neurologists have discovered that some of these tendencies are genetic. It is not your fault! You had no vote on your genetic disposition. Doctors and medical science are discovering every day how to help us with these disorders. For instance, if you have diabetic tendencies, this is not your fault...you need insulin and medical support. Don't hesitate to go to a doctor for help.
Thank you for connecting with us. We do care about you.
