A message I need to hear today

Life will not always be this way. Low days, tough days, do not last forever. Even this depression will pass.

God is so good. His loving kindness endures forever. Psalm 136:2 Give thanks to the God of gods, for his loving-kindness  continues forever. (TLB).

Psalm 43:5 Oh my soul, why be so gloomy and discouraged? Trust in God! I shall again praise him for his wondrous help; he will make me smile again, for he is my God. (TLB)

Hold to what you know to be truth. God has gone nowhere without you. He surrounds you with angels to protect you and guard your heart. Give him your troubles. Cast your cares back on him.

Keep your eyes on him, on the good, on the hope you have. Be gentle with yourself. Somethings take a while to get through or to get over. Don’t expect instantaneous relief all the time. 

Just know this is part of the human experience. You are not alone nor unique. Everyone has days they’d like to pull the covers up and stay in bed.

But I’m proud of you for getting up, for being productive in a few ways, for keeping your troubles off your mind.

Praise be to the God and Father of Jesus Christ who will see you through this and every day.

    1. Wow. well, third time’s the charm.
      Psalm 102 struck me so hard I put the words to music decades ago. It has upheld me in my seeking God in the darkness and confusion.
      Thanks for your post.
