Welcome to Insight for LivingThe Bible-Teaching Ministry of Charles R. Swindoll
But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.
We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the LORD laid on him the sins of us all.
Isaiah 53:5–6 (NLT-SE)

Strengthening Your Grip


I had a nervous breakdown in 1993 - ran away to London on a one way ticket at the age of 27. Became impoverished, was down to my last 5 pound, had no food, it was snowing and no roof over my head. I gave my last 5 pound to a homeless man. I was mentally ill too. I went to St Mary's Cathedral in Aberdeen Scotland on a Sunday afternoon, petrified and frightened of my poverty. I begged Jesus for help to get back to my family. I suddenly had a feeling of well being that had not been mine for years. I walked out of the church into lonely Union Street on that snowy Sunday Afternoon, walked past the Bank of Scotland ATM and it whirred into action and out popped 1000 pounds. I had not touched it and neither had anyone else. I did not think of it as theft as I had been suicidal with fear and was in desperate need. I took the money, bought a plane ticket back to Australia. Went to church 7 days a week for 4 weeks, bought a bible and have not looked back in my faith. That was 17 years ago. My nervous breakdown was caused by 6 unrelated rape attempts in a period of 6 months. I fell apart with fear of strangers. Long story. I have just graduated as a Social Worker and now minister to the Mentally Ill. I became a Social Worker for Jesus. I really enjoy listening to your show! Love you and God Bless You

I listen to insight for living every day however this morning I was dissappointed to hear that we should accept all the bad things in life with love and acceptance. I lost a wife to cervical cancer in 1997 and am now remarried, my new wife has cervical cancer and al the prayers to God have failed. i consider myself a good christian however now i find that I am going away from such a cruel master. the one we all call GOD
