Devotions for Mums with depression day one
Author requests article critique
“Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.” Proverbs 12:25
Anxiety and depression are linked. What is a good word? What the Bible says.
I have read the scriptures from childhood, but I haven’t always stood on them. I received a letter from Jenny three months into my struggle. She penned, ‘you don’t appreciate what it means to “stand on God’s Word” until you have to literally stand on a Bible verse or verses and declare them to be true! When you do the standing, God does the strengthening!
‘Paul said, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13. He won’t just strengthen you once; He’ll do it again and again.
“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5 However difficult or long the night, morning always comes, and with it His joy. As you look back you’ll realise that His grace protected you, provided for you, secured you, calmed you, comforted you and brought you through.
Our loving heavenly Father is so constant, faithful and unchanging. He is the Rock of our lives and the God of all comfort, and He always has time to listen to us.’
Two of my friends, Shell and Tash, sent encouraging text messages when I first became sick.
‘As much as your emotions may not ‘feel’ like it, keep reading the Word. Psalms are great and let the Holy Spirit minister to you. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for you. You are awesome, loved and have purpose.’
‘You’re loved, you’re a precious daughter of the King, you’re a loving wife, you’re a fantastic Mum, you’re a caring friend, you’re a Godly woman, you’re a faithful God chick. It’s true!’
From my experience, you can’t Bible read your way out of clinical depression. But if there’s one thing you need when suffering from a chemical imbalance in your brain, it is God. The Bible is His word. And it is good.
Make your heart glad today with a good word.
