ENGAGING ANXIETY & DEPRESSION
MESSAGES OF HOPE, TRUTH, AND ENCOURAGEMENT
Pastor John Piper encourages us that God is at work in our darkest times of suffering even when we don't or cannot see what God is ultimately working in us and through our circumstances. God will not allow us to be tested in these seasons beyond what we can withstand. In these times we trust in the promises of God and His word to carry us through the most difficult of experiences along our journey.
John Piper is founder and teacher of desiringGod.org and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. For more than thirty years, he served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis. He is author of more than fifty books, and his sermons, articles, books, and more are available free of charge at desiringGod.org.
The Comfort of God's Spirit Knows No Boundaries
The Psalmist David is essentially proclaiming the truth that The Comfort of God’s Spirit Knows No Boundaries as he writes, “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.” Basically, David understands that anywhere he is, there God will be and already is, because He is omnipresent (God is present everywhere all the time). God is always ready to provide hope and comfort to the hurting soul.

STORY BEHIND THE MUSIC
The Song – "Symphony" by Switch
This song was inspired by the fact that there always seems to be chaos of all types surrounding our lives along the journey yet we have a God who is faithful working out all things for our good. As if being a Master Instrumentalist, God takes the various elements of our lives and constructs them into a "Beautiful Symphony" that inspires our hearts with hope for the future.
God's Grace For The Moment
We're never promised in scripture that we will not suffer in our lifetime. However, God does promise to be with us and never turn away from us. In fact, it is in our suffering that we can find ourselves drawing nearer to His presence than we've ever experienced before.

Mike Weaver, lead singer for the Christian band, Big Daddy Weave, shares the story behind the group's song "Redeemed" which arose out of his own struggle with self-hatred, self-condemnation, poor self-worth,
and how he came to understand how God truly sees him.
God is decisively
drawn to those
who are mourning, hurting, struggling, and who are brokenhearted.
- Pastor, Richard Mills
At various times and in various seasons of life we are the very Hands and Feet of God to one another.
