Story number 2 for 13 Dec 1999

Meanwhile, the International Bible Society is providing resources to help people through depression and other emotional needs. IBS has developed some scripture tools to help in seven key areas of emotional stress, which many times, hits around the holidays. Debbie DeaBueno (dee-BWAYN-oh) is the managing editor of this project. “We know that God’s word can heal hurts in lives, but sometimes giving someone a Bible is a little overwhelming. They start with page one and they get stuck in Deuteronomy or Numbers. Although the power of God’s word is there, we needed to direct people straight to some of the scripture.” DeaBueno says pointing people to scripture will turn many hearts to Christ. “Seeing that it’s okay the Jesus cried out to God in these scriptures and other Biblical characters did the same, I think it helps to know that I’m not the only one who’s ever had this problem and they received help and comfort and hope. ”
