Testimony by Darrel
Grew up in a Christian home. Mom died on Mother's Day. A few years later wife left. Recently lost his job. 
Now some heart attacks. More pressure. 
Got professional help for depression and nutrition. Daily Scripture reading. Subscribe to Daily Audio Bible with Brian.
How to cope with depression. 
Nature is amazing. Birds, deer, pets.
Get a hobby. Find a creative activity that you're passionate about.
Not one solution. A combination of things. The alone Mother's Day is a good time to weep into the garden. Youngest daughter helps me plant the garden in memory of her grandmother. 
What is God teaching you? Passion for living gave motivation to sing. Hard to come to practice some weeks. Then someone said you touched me. No, you were touched by God. But God uses imperfect people. 

That's my story too! 
All my Delight is in You Lord!

Pastor John Neufeld:
Go to to help with the flood in BC. Pray for safety. Financing. 
Pray for the family of Abe Hiebert funeral Thursday. 

Confession is good for the soul. 
When our kids were little we had Bible reading and memorize Scripture before bedtime. And pray for people and confess our shortcomings. We don't practice it so much any more. 
Confession is good for the soul. 

Got a call for a meeting at 3pm some time ago. His family was falling apart. 
He said, I'm not confessing to you but you are sitting in Jesus's chair. He confessed everything. 
He began to experience freedom. 

Got another call from someone who called him "Father John" for a Step 5 review.
John reviewed the 4 prior Steps with him. 
The fellow pulled out 4 pieces of paper with 30 lines on each. Jesus is God. That's the first confession. With God who created us. 
Romans 10:9-13 No one who believes in Him will be put to shame. That's why we come to church. 
Confess. I promise agree declare
We gather as followers of Jesus to connect. 
Heart Will Spirit, Mind, Body, Soul.
Confessing that Jesus is Lord is going in the right direction. 
1 John 1:5-10 there is no darkness in God. If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 
Pain is a symptom of a problem. It's a privilege to be forgiven. Some people will not forgive no matter how often you say sorry. 
James 5:13-16 Jesus's brother wrote this. Confess your sins to one another so you may be healed. Renewal and change begins after confession. Go with a mentor. 
You are forgiven. You are free in the name of Jesus. 
What's stopping you from confessing? Jesus died so you can. Forgiveness has happened already. Confess to be free. 

My kids could sleep well because they had confessed and mom and dad had heard them.
