Why Does God Test Us
Rom 5:3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience,
2Co 1:4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
2Ti 2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him:

Mid-Life Female With Depression
I have dealt with depression & have little support system myself. Please feel free to email me. I must take prescription strength vitamin D due to low level & find it & B-vitamins help my mood. You might have your vitD level tested. I have heard serotonin levels are effected by estrogen levels, causing depression in post-menopausal women. A friend of mine had to start taking estrogen with anti-depressants after menopause. But all of the supplements & meds in the world cannot change the awful things in life we must deal with. Yes, we as christians should support each other in this.

Demon Jumped On Me
Before I became a christian, a friend & I were both mildly involved in the occult. I dreamed that an invisible demon was sitting on my chest & I could not move. I could only get one word out, "Jesus". A voice laughed & said, "He can't help you now". My friend had the same dream with the same verbal response. No attacks after I became a christian. Many years ago I read a christian book giving examples of this: "The beautiful side of evil".

Prayer Needs February 2011
I get so tired of fighting chronic pain, feeling twice my age (86) & feel ready to give up on life itself. Trish, I have gotten a little relief in the past by taking a supplement, Hops, & a prescription, Elavil 75mg, 1-2 hrs before bed & by sleeping on a magnetic memory foam mattress pad with powerful magnets, northside up. I still have to reposition frequently & if I get less than 10hrs sleep, my pain goes up greatly. I have taken many supplements over the years to fight inflammation: fish oil, ginger, tumeric, cherry extract, & noni. Some may thin blood, ask your dr is these & magnets are safe for you.

Are You Afraid Of Dying
As a nurse who has worked closely with the dying, my first response would be that I might be afraid of the physical suffering aspect of dying. I have seen so many really struggle & suffer. My second thought would be that I would be happily free of the everyday pain I have on this earth now & be with the Lord. On my worst pain-filled days now, my thought is "Lord, I am ready, any time".

Is Yoga Against The Bible
Not all yoga involves meditation. Some just involves relaxation techniques, deep breathing, & slow stretches & poses. You can read amazon reviews of yoga dvd's like I did & choose one suited to your needs. To me, yoga is just a very beneficial form of exercise.
