Most of the Bible is in the major key. Saints fearlessly witnessing, churches valiantly serving against all oddsâ€”and what a joy those sections are to our souls. But side-by-side with all that is the minor key. God's Word contains true glimpses into the weaknesses and frailties that God understands and shows us in the lives of some of His greatest saints. These are men and women who were sad, discouraged, and depressedâ€”yet the Lord does not correct them and tell them they are ion sin. He just encourages them and helps them go on.
Life in the minor keyâ€”is it always sin that makes us depressed? Is it always a sin to be depressed?
No, it is not, is the answer from God's Word.
This message is one week long devotional study from the book below: Living Hope for The End of Days.
Great Sermon! Thanks for posting this sermon. It was of great help and comfort to me as I am struggling difficulties of my life. It has also helped me to see Paul as a real person who was at times overcome with his difficulties. To me that makes his words of comfort more meaningful.

Great Sermon! God Bless You...This is so outstanding! In this time of our Lord's coming for His Bride, I find this sermon is so in need to fall on the body of Christ. Thank God for your wisdom from our Father.
Thank you for letting us print this so timely a message. My sister in The Lord attempted suicide last night and The God Full of Mercy has spared her life. I will share this with her.
My heart is full of Joy!
Thank you Holy Spirit for revealing ALL Truth...
