Depression is never an easy thing to admit but in a recent interview on Oprah's "Master Class," Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson admitted to battling depression shortly after playing football for four years at the University of Miami, and being passed over by the NFL.
At 23, after not being selected to play pro football and also cut from his Canadian football team, Johnson found himself living in his parents' small apartment, battling depression. In the 2-minute clip, the now 43-year-old warns that loneliness is a direct side effect of depression.
"You're not the first to go through it; you're not going to be the last to go through it. And oftentimes — it happens — you just feel like you're alone. You feel like it's only you. You're in your bubble," he said. "I wish I had someone at that time who could just pull me aside and [say], 'Hey, it's gonna be OK. It'll be OK.' So, I wish I knew that." more >>

Have you ever had a hard time receiving a gift from someone? God's gift of salvation is one gift you will want to say yes to!
Ephesians 2:8-9 says, "For it is by free grace (God's unmerited favor) that you are saved … through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God; not because of works … lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.]" (AMPC).
We are saved by the grace of God through our faith in Him; our faith does not buy our salvation — it merely receives it. more >>
On the heels of the release of her new album, Be One, singer Natalie Grant talked to The Christian Post about the current state of the world and what she believes has been missing.
The multiple Dove Award winner admitted she was not approached by her record company, Curb Records, to make a new album, but was "compelled" by what was happening around her and in her. Despite her label being hesitant, the Seattle-born singer proceeded to write and record song after song, completing the album in just 6 weeks.
A six week turnaround time for a big studio album is very rare but when asked how she did it, Grant gives all the glory to God. Her song "Clean," which now has over a million views on Facebook, was written after a conversation with her friend who confessed that she suffered from a lot of abuse. Grant said she was so burdened by her friend's story that she wrote the song in 20 minutes. more >>

"It's surreal to watch people be you and say your words and reenact a part of your life; it's quite disarming to sit there and watch it," Piper reflected on the filming experience to CP.
"There were times when they would actually turn to us after filming a scene and say 'what do you think?' You don't normally have that happen, so Giving Pictures did everything they could to make this an authentic film," Piper revealed. more >>
