Revelation: Robin Williams 'accepted Jesus Christ'
Actor and comedian Robin Williams’ struggle with substance abuse and depression is no longer a secret, and now neither is a report of his one-time acceptance of Jesus Christ.

Movieguide Founder and Chairman of the Christian Film and Television Commission Dr. Ted Baehr met with Williams on several occasions at press junkets, and the two discovered they both had grown up with parents who shared similar beliefs, reported Movieguide.

“Both our mothers had been Christian Scientists,” Baehr told WND. “His father was a nominal Episcopalian and mine was unchurched.”

“I shared with him the concrete reality of Jesus and how my life was changed,” Baehr said, noting that when he came to Christ, his own drug abuse stopped immediately. The same happened to Baehr’s father upon his conversion late in life. ...

Greetings to you too, sister Jessica.
I wish I understood more about prayer. I read of Praying Hyde, and George Mueller, and plenty of others, but there seems to be very few sermons I've heard over the years which deal with praying in faith, and believing the words of our Lord Jesus concerning asking.
Your creative mind is very evident, and I wish you well as you learn more about writing and painting. I reckon God does give some of us creativity, and this needs to be used and expressed. It is one of God's gifts to us. And it always thrills me when someone comes back and tells me that one of my paintings they bought is still bringing pleasure, even years later. God's blessings to you.
God bless you John,

I have a Facebook page called Biblical Prayers where I post Scriptures about prayer, this is to encourage myself as well as others. Learning about prayer for me is a life long pursuit how to communicate with our Father in Heaven. It is a matter of the heart of which I of which I endeavour to grow in friendship with God and His righteousness. I long to have a close relationship with God and to hear Him say: "Well done, good and faithful servant."

May God purpose we His children to speak life into hurting people!

Greetings John in Jesus Mighty Name,
Thank you for your kindness and encouragement!
I have been thinking about your post and wondering what my prayer life should be like? I am an aspiring poet and writer and after reading your post I realize that I need to pray about the talents God has given me.
I take one Universities Studies course a semester and am always looking to improve my writing — I would also like to improve my artistic skills. Yet I'm wondering what God's will is in these matters?
God bless and peace to you!

[...]I was greatly humbled this week through answered prayer, despite having a poor week. Normally I might expect to sell a small painting on a Tuesday at market, and that's it. But this week I asked the Lord I might sell four. Never happened before. But I prayed in the name of Jesus, claiming only his righteousness and blood, and not for mine own deservings which was nil. The market progressed, and I had a lot of people looking, and giving good comments, but not buying. Then there was a mad half hour when, sure enough, I sold four small paintings. I was astonished. The Lord sure is exact, as I sold no more afterwards. Maybe he's encouraging me to pray more.

Jessica, I'm sure you're precious to Jesus, and to us too. Plus you are a great example and encourager.

We know that all things are by grace, but sometimes imagine that if we've had a particularly holy week, with successes, we might have our prayers answered more positively. I was greatly humbled this week through answered prayer, despite having a poor week. Normally I might expect to sell a small painting on a Tuesday at market, and that's it.

I would be interested to know if you took up artwork as a form of occupational therapy, as there is a canvas alongside your cover photo.
It is difficult to be occupied while very ill, and when I was off work due to sickness I took up a correspondence course on creative writing. It kept my mind alert, and I managed to sell several short stories with a moral theme, and a distinctly gospel-oriented article, nearly all of them sold in Canada, would you believe? Then in 2005 I moved to Wales and joined a church whose pastor was teaching watercolour on a Friday morning and giving a short gospel exhortation at the tea break. Most of the class were not believers, so it was a good opportunity to reach them with the gospel. I worked hard at it, and by 2008 my health had improved sufficiently for me to launch out as a part time artist, which I have continued to be ever since.

There's a story going around that Mr Williams reckrde a video on his phone right before his suicide. The story looks official, but before clicking on the link to it, I researched it and found it is a hoax leading to trouble. Just a warning not to follow any links if you run across them.

Thanks, Jessica for sharing your story with us and giving that link to the USA article. I think a lot of good comes from being open and honest about your illness. The article is informative and done with compassion. Bringing laughter to others helps you and them to cope with the illness, people don't feel so alone and isolated. I laughted out loud at the toaster joke.
Thank you Delores, I appreciate your comment about the 'toaster' joke — David Granirer , the founder of Stand Up For Mental Health, taught us how to take painful experiences and see them in a different light through humour, and share the routines with audiences to raise awareness about mental illness and fight stigma.

I am deeply concerned with the Christian Science' influence which was in Robin Williams' life — as Christian Science teaches false doctrines which are damaging to those who are suffering from physical and mental infirmities.

Almost 20 years ago when I was in a psychiatric hospital in a locked ward, a fellow patient's parents were Christian Science — it was known he was blamed for his illness.

He had the countenance of a small child and I can still see his face in my mind.

Jessica,

You are very brave to share that. Thank you, dear sister.

Your comments are always a blessing to me. I'm so glad you came back to SA and are establishing relationships with brothers and sisters in Christ. We all need encouragement in these dark times.

As for those who believe Calvinism is the cure for depression or that depression is a sin..... you ought not speak of things you know nothing about. Surely Job was depressed in his straits but God meant it for his eventual good. His straits wrought the cure for his pride which was sin.

Jessica, if if makes you feel any better, I've never heard of you
But I think I understand what you mean. When people only see the mask you are paid to wear, they think that's who you really are, without considering that you are just a regular person, just like them.
To my brother in the faith Chris Frost,

Please forgive me for behaving in a defensive manner — this has been weighing on my conscience even as I have been trying to go to sleep at night. Please accept my sincere apology — I think I let terrible news I received the day before influence my better opinion. I do not accept my allowing painful emotions of one circumstance to bleed into another, and I am sorry for this.

God bless, grace and peace to you from God the Father and our Lord Christ Jesus!

Jessica, I second the posts from Dolores and Dorcas. It was a very brave thing you did in having your story published, and I am very glad you shared that with us. I would be interested to know if you took up artwork as a form of occupational therapy, as there is a canvas alongside your cover photo.

It kept my mind alert, and I managed to sell several short stories with a moral theme, and a distinctly gospel-oriented article, nearly all of them sold in Canada, would you believe?

I worked hard at it, and by 2008 my health had improved sufficiently for me to launch out as a part time artist, which I have continued to be ever since. Every day I praise God for his loving care, and the gift of a new day of life. Surely, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

To not be afraid of being misunderstood or hurt by the cruelty of others.To help others to seek help if they need to.
