Depression – To my Friends and Family


I am not myself, nor have I been for at least 5 months or so since I was last in the hospital. I haven’t recovered from that stay and the medication they put me on and so far my psychiatric nurse who prescribes my meds has not has much luck with the few things we have tried. I see her again on Thursday. Just a few more days to til I try something new with its possible reactions.

I can’t take much more of this depression. I am pulling away again from my family and friends. I am trying to pretend everything is ok so no one starts worrying about me, but my son, for one, sees right through me. Our conversations usually end up with me crying. Heck I am crying over every little thing as it is.

I am trying to keep my faith strong and write my daily devotions which is a struggle right now. I am not reading much, nor creating as much as I used to when I am feeling better.

For those of you that pray, please pray for me, for those that don’t please send positive thoughts that I can beat this again. I don’t want another hospital stay since it usually hurts more than helps and it is no fun.

I cannot beat this on my own.

Repentance!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 7:10

The sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to Salvation.

Dedicate yourself and turn away from sin. Repent fully and experience the full, abundant life He has created for you.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you Father for helping me to recognize my sin and commit my life to you.

Amen

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! I Corinthians 6:23

Trust God to Lead You!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:5

Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You must trust the Lord and not your own thoughts. Remember God has the very best plan for you.

He Died on the Cross For Us

By Teresa Smeigh

God Says No, What Do You Do?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:2-3 NLT

This I declare about the Lord: he alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

No one wants to hear the word NO. We plead with the Lord to accept our prayers. He has his reasons for saying no at this time, maybe forever. The father is both compassionate and good and eventually you will understand why he said NO!

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you Father for leading me in the best way possible and to accept your NO!

Amen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! I Corinthians 6:23

Trust He’s Living

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 9:10

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Do no draw a conclusion without consulting God. Don’t rely on your natural eyes or pass judgement on your situation. Look to God for understanding.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you Father for working on my behalf and leading me to victory.

Amen

Your Are Forgiven, Welcome and Loved!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Genesis 3:6 NKJV

When the woman saw that the tree was…desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Satan is forever trying to shame you into doing things that God would disapprove of. Do not give in. God always has your best interests in mind.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you Father for loving me and satisfying me so that I do not seek or allow Satan to have me. I am yours and you satisfy me.

Amen

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! I Corinthians 6:23
