Count Your Blessings

Christians are not altogether immune from depression. The fact is: the trend of events and the mounting tide of evil are enough to give one sobering thoughts—Christian or not. David, the sweet singer of Israel, was not always on top of his depression. Sometimes his glad song was turned to a depressive mourning. “My tears have been my meat day and night, while continually they say unto me, Where is thy God? Why art thou cast down, O my soul, and why art thou disquieted in me?” I find that the cure for depression is praise. In other words: be so busy counting your blessings, that thoughts of gloom and despair will be crowded out.

Be encouraged by Sheila Walsh’s story of overcoming depression.

God can bring great praise from times of despair. Listen to this 1-minute testimony for more.

Prayer for the day

Thank You, heavenly Father, for the Psalms which help me see that even in the depths David talked with You. Whatever my circumstances, I will learn to praise You.

    The number one blessing that should top all of them is we have a Heavenly Father that loves us so much and He is continually fighting on our behalf. He will not forsake us.
