Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God! (Psalm 43:5)
Depression can be so painful and deep- deep to the bone marrow of your soul hurting the physical and spiritual aspect of our lives.
But Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10).
My brother/sister let us rise up from our ashes. I know it hurts so bad, I know you do not even want to eat or feel like eating or vice versa. Yes you don’t feel like smiling, bathing or even praying and praising.
Yes, I don’t know what you are going through. But Jesus knows it all, and it is not His will that you remain bound with depression.
Isaiah 60:1 – Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. Shake off your dust (Isaiah 52:2).
Arise. God is the source and the strength of your life. Rise up oh chosen one. Wash up; dress up and smile. The Bible tells us to put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. Yes you and I can do it. Not by our own strength, but through Jesus Christ.
Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me”.
