A Soul Scaffold from the Desert ~ Depressed?
Abba Euprepius (a fourth century A.D. desert monk) taught:
knowing that God is mighty and faithful, have faith in Him and you shall share what is His.
No person of faith turns to God in pain and loses out.
No person of faith rolls tears down their cheeks that God won't count.
No person of faith makes the Lord his refuge and does not gain unseen protection.
No person of faith stares down the oppression of darkness without too seeing a light from heaven.
Then He touched their eyes, saying, "According to your faith let it be to you." (Matthew 9:29)
"Our Father in Heaven is able to help us as no earthly father is able to do either in love or in relief." ~ A.B. Simpson

"Work for God's eye—and even then, do not think much about reward. Seek to be a blessing." ~ anon
