Martha and I were watching a tv. show last night in which Dave Mustaine reported that he is now a Christian. I was quite shocked when I heard this. The only thing that could have surprised me more would be if I heard that Lemmy Kilmister had become a Christian. Actually, I shouldn’t feel this way. I should start praying for Lemmy, Ozzy and a few others. I shouldn’t be surprised to hear one day that Casey Anthony or Lindsay Lohan have given their lives to the Lord. Stranger things have happened. As Christians we need to pray for Dave’s protection as the Enemy likely really hates it that Dave has made a decision for the Lord. Dave Mustaine is in a position to influence a lot of young people with his spiritual views.
Hope (part two)
When I fell into this depth of despair I actually hoped that my life would be cut short so that I wouldn’t have to suffer any more. A severe depressive episode can cause this type of distortion of perspective. Fortunately, I was able to come out of this depression after a couple of months. How did I do this? It had nothing to do with anything I did or didn’t do. I had people praying for me. Slowly, but surely, I started to feel better. I started to think about making new plans for my future. In other words, hope was starting to return. I had to ride out the pain and continue to survive until the depression finally lifted. This is a place I hope that I will never have to return to this dark place but I also relize that it is very possible that I will.
