Joni and Friends is an amazing organization that talks not only about visible disabilities as we see in Joni Eareckson Tada, but also hidden disabilities with mental health. The video below is part of her “Diamonds in the Dust” series that are short vignettes on what we as Christians must do to keep pushing forward.
The video below talks about our ability to keep pressing on, even if we feel stuck. But press on as God would have us to do, not with seeing another counseling client, writing another blog article for our church website, or coming up with another game, but engaging with God in prayer.
Here is what Joni shared: “If you are tired and ready to throw in the towel, don’t give up. Jesus is asking you to let down your net just one more time. Stay in his Word; keep praying; pursue obedience. He can still fill an empty net!”
I have a nephew who is schizophrenic. We are not capable of supporting him because we are poor. He loves gaming and it seems no one in the family is sharing his interests. You know that stigma of gaming as the way of the Devil to allure us away from God’s love. What to do? I’d love to save his soul but our church is not matured enough to understand where he is coming from. Even his family attending church, they don’t know how to care and relate to him.
