Here is a wonderful Song to kick off your morning today.
Now more than ever I see worry, discouragement, and depression plaging the generations on the earth. The Solution that is given to most is to take a pill. The answer to the worry / Depression / Anxiety problem is trust in the Lord. I am not minimizing these things, they are very real and hard to get out of. What I am saying is that you should not be ok with living with these things, or taking a pill for the rest of your life for it. It is time to put our trust in God and allow him to heal us.
Philippians 4:4-9 New Living Translation
4 Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! 5 Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.[a]
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. 9 Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.
Write down what is the thing that you worry most about? What are things that get you down and scared about. And how can you begin to intentionally trust God and replace your worry with trust and faith.
For the rest of the week I want to challenge and encourage you to capture all of your thoughts when you are being tempted to be worried, down, and depressed, go back to these scriptures and put your thoughts on the things that Paul tells us here to put our thoughts. Get victory... Don't worry, Pray and trust.
