Take On Your Depression!

Tonight at church I shared a message about depression and discouragement!  When you read the Bible, you will discover that this is actually a common theme running through the lives of many of the men and women that served God very faithfully!

I penned this affirmation for a friend on Facebook and thought I would share it here for anyone interested!

“I will not worry or be anxious about anything, because I make the choice to cast all of my cares, concerns and worries upon the Lord.  I refuse to fear, because I choose to put my confident trust in Him.  I know that God is taking care of me and I know that He loves me.  I am thankful for His peaceful presence that rests in and upon my life.

I will not let my heart be troubled, because I will keep my mind, heart and Spirit focused on Him, knowing and believing that He has promised to never leave me or forsake me!

I know that trouble will come my way, but believe God when He says that He will deliver me out of my troubles and afflictions.  I will keep my eyes focused on Him and off the circumstances of life.

There will be tribulation in this world, but I can be of good cheer, because my God has overcome this world and will help me to do the same!

My future is out of my hands and in God’s hands – I know, trust, believe and have faith that He will take care of me!

God’s Word promises that ALL THINGS work together for the good of those who love Him.  I cannot change my circumstances, but I can trust God to use my circumstances to change and grow me for His glory.  What Satan means for evil, my God will use for good!

I am free, victory is mine to God be the glory!”  G3!
