Dear Brother

I know right now it feels like everything is crashing down in tiny pieces so scattered you think they can never be put back together again.

I know your life feels as if life is whirling out of control.

How do I know?

I know because I have been there.

I know how it feels to carry your burdon everywhere you go, ghosts of the past bounding you up in chains, until they become so tight they begin crushing the life out of you. Sending you down a path of self destruction so deep into the darkness that you don’t know how to begin to find your way out.

What you’re doing to yourself is not ever going to take away the pain that you hold on to so tightly inside. No amount of self destruction will ever take it away, it can’t be numbed and you can never hide from it.

It doesn’t have to be this way…you can choose to let it go.

Jesus sees what you can’t see…

He knows you are worth so much.

He knows your hurting.

He can fix the broken pieces

He feels your pain and he can take it away.

Please take his hand…he’s reaching out for you.

All you have to do is grab on…trust him, let him save you.

I promise He will lead you out of this place you are in.

Dear Brother,  Jesus loves you so much. I want you to know Jesus. I want you to have what I have now. Hope, joy and peace, they all can be yours, all you have to do is accept his gift.  Please just give Jesus a chance. I promise you won’t be sorry.



When everything comes crashing down

I looked around and it’s you I found

Picking up the shattered pieces

I couldn’t put together again

I know you can see what I can’t see,

I know You know how this will end

You can fix the broken and lead the lost

Your the place I will fix my eyes

Take away all the fear, doubt and pain

Comfort my brother

Take him in your arms

Hold him tight and wrap him in your love.

One thought on “Dear Brother

  1. Freedomborn ... Aussie Christian Focus says:

    You have been on my mind T, I hope your feeling better, are you referring to a Christian Brother or do you have a Brother in your extended family ? unless I missed it you have never mentioned him.

    I felt you were referring to Depression too or the Black hole as some call it and if so your answer is wonderful, but if not it still is, Jesus is the only way to overcome any suffering or hardship we are experiencing, physical or mental and He tells us as you said to Trust in Him and to focus on what is good…..

    Philippians 4:8 -9 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are True, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of Peace shall be with you.

    I have been with many people who were suffering depression and I have also experienced it’s darkness myself but mine came from guilt and fear, I repented of the wrong I had done instead of minimizing and excusing it and I than had God’s Peace but even now if my focus is on the negative or I worry instead of taking the problems to Jesus, I feel down and upset and if I allow it to continue I become fearful imagining the worst and most people can say the same even if they have never had depression, this is why Jesus tells us to not worry but to bring all our problems to Him, which you also shared in wisdom T was the answer.

    I came in contact with a Ministry years ago that focused mainly on Satan and his demons and yes they are real and we do need to be aware of his tricks and to warn others but we do not have to fear him as Christians, Jesus protects us and has given us a sound mind which when focused on Him has no fear.

    We also do not talk to Satan or allow him to cause us to be fearful by focusing on the evil he propagates, it leads to us imagining the worst, we can recognize this because it will cause us to have negative feelings, like when we watch Vampire movies or watching anything that has evil content and this is the same when there is a depressing focus, we need to always do as Jesus asks us and our heart focus must always be Love, yes aware of evil but not focusing on it.

    Keeping you in prayer – Christian Love Always from both of us – Anne.
