Amazon|Depression and Post-Traumatic Growth

     

When it comes to the definition of a good person, most people think of boundless forgiveness, obligatory tolerance and charity, but countless people have no idea about the 7 heavenly virtues and 7 deadly sins. The fact is that most people underestimate the sins of pride, prejudice, anger, habitual laziness, apathy and jealousy. It’s something unusual but common that innumerable persons choose a certain religion without much understanding.

 

Most people perceive their mistake will be forgiven if they confess, which can be deadly wrong. Everything we do has consequences.  In Christianity, there are forgivable and “unforgivable sins.” Satan was once God’s favorite angel. As angels make mistakes, hey are punished by God too. No exemption. God is righteous. He executes justice by rewarding the good deeds and condemn the sins.

 

God knows the motives of our prayers. If we ask anything according to Gods will, God will respond. (John 5: 14, ESV) You ask and not receive, because you ask with wrong motives (James 4: 3). 

 

God abhors wickedness. Thus, God’s punishment demonstrates God’s wrath and God’s justice. Much like the leading character Truman Burbank in the film “The Truman Show,” we are living under God’s supervision. God is watching our every move. According to the Bible, God reads our minds and every spoken word will be judged by God. And everything we have done for the lifetime will be recorded in a book and God will evaluate our performance on Judgment Day. The Judgment Day will determine whether us lived a life of righteousness. The Final Judgment is the retribution time. Receive the rewards or pay the debts. Face what you deserve.

 

According to the Bible, a blessed life is not an easy life without any challenges. As to the occurrence of an unexpected traumatic event, would you identify it a life challenge or life trouble or would you question God’s justice? Countless people feel they are badly rewarded by God. Most people stigmatize their life troubles because they know nothing about “God’s discipline” (Hebrews 12:11). According to the Bible, God only disciplines those He loves. In a sense, we betray God’s love and benevolence if we stigmatize life challenges. 

 

What about the great figures in history? What about the life of Mater Teresia, Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II, or Albert Einstein? Evidently, God does not tend to make anyone’s life perfect. It’s just some people hide their tears from you.

 

There are too many temptations. Its never easy to live a life fully abide by the creeds laid out in the Bible. we might commit sins that we do not even aware of, such as anger, pride, gluttony and apathy. Significantly, pride is recognized as a capital sin in the Bible. Generally, pride and social prejudice go hand in hand. As to those who love to gossip others, be aware of your words.

 

Without Gods discipline, we might be allured by unduly desires, excessive greed or lust. The positive value of hard times is assured, because we only have the chance to witness unconditional love and God’s miracles in the tough times. And sufferings teach us to be truly humble and compassionate to others pain.

 

In Hebrews 13:5, it says “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have.” Material enjoyment are common temptations. According to the Bible, “The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs” (1 Timothy 6:10:). That fully explains why the Bible says, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” (NRSV, Mark 10:23-27). As pointed in the Bible, those who have been “given much, much will be demanded” (Luke 12; 47–48). Keep going the right things and God will still supply your needs and guard your life.

 

The omniscience of God is assured. God is all-knowing and God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil (Ecclesiastes 12:14).

 

Knowing the Word and will of God isn’t enough, we have to act upon the conviction. As we become cynical of the world, we push away from God’s grace. A hardened embittered impenitent heart leads us away from God’s blessing.

 

Love covers over a multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4: 7-8) Pray for each other (James 5:16). “Get rid of all bitterness,” including but not limited to anger, and “every form of malice (Ephesians 4:31-32).

Countless people tend to stigmatize life troubles because they never heard about “God’s discipline” in the Bible (Hebrews 12:11). The Bible makes it clear that God ’s discipline and God’s love are intertwined, which fully explains the strong connection between God’s discipline and post-traumatic growth. As we stigmatize life challenges, we betray God’s love and benevolence. Thus, when our life track differs from our original plan, don’t be scared. For sure, there’s a distinct unequivocal difference between God’s discipline and God’s punishment. As to the occurrence of an unexpected traumatic event, would you take it for granted, or would you question God’s justice? Most people experience the moments of wavering faith. People have doubts in their hearts. With only a smattering of bible understanding, wavering faith is common among Christians, especially in the hard times. This book offers clear-cut answers to people’s questions and doubts about God’s justice, God’s wrath (God’s anger), Final Judgment (Judgment Day, Last Judgment), the images of heaven and God’s promise of eternal life, God’s blessing (peace, safety and health) and God’s discipline. According to the Bible, a blessed life is not an easy life without any life troubles, worries and challenges. What about the great figures in history? What about the life of Mater Teresia, Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II, or Albert Einstein? Evidently, God does not tend to make anyone’s life perfect. It’s just some people hide their tears from you. Going through the hard times gives us the chance to witness unconditional love and sufferings teach us to be truly humble and compassionate to others’ pain. When it comes to the definition of a good person, most people think of boundless forgiveness, obligatory tolerance and charity, but countless people have no idea about the 7 heavenly virtues and 7 deadly sins. The fact is that most people underestimate the sins of pride, prejudice, anger, habitual laziness, apathy and jealousy. God knows the motives of our prayers. I always believe that everyone is having the life as the leading character Truman Burbank in the film “The Truman Show.” Because we are living under the camera of God. There’s a famous Chinese saying: God is watching our every move, which means our daily lives are under the supervision of God. According to the Bible, God reads our minds and every spoken word will be judged by God.

There’s a strong link between imperfection, unconditional love and posttraumatic growth. In truth, we can only witness unconditional love in the hard times. If you believe in luck or miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins and the seven heavenly virtues. According to the Bible, no one will be exempt from life challenges, including the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9). God expects us to stay hopeful and “rejoice in our sufferings,” because “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we learn. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between the brain and stomach is bidirectional. Excessive sugar intake sabotages our immune system and 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems and slow wound healing. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” It’s worth noting that muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that reduced muscle mass is associated with hyperglycemia. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness Be aware of the power of tenderness, humility and subconscious mind. Generally, negative emotions root in the inability to forgive, vanity or pride. People suffer from suppressed anger. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace nor unconditional love. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies and snobs. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Trauma is highly linked to chronic fatigue and chronic illness.
