August 17

Hey there Internets.

No TWD here today.

I truly had every intention of making it, but with the depression rolling over me like a tree down a mountain I didn’t make it.

Depression took my happy and I want it back.

  1. Sorry to hear about depression entering into your day, try to give him the cold shoulder or start listing your blessing. He can’t stand that.

  2. I totally understand the depression thing. It is a giant in our place right now.Jarrod can’t eat chocolate,so even that wouldn’t help. I on the other hand could eat enough for me and him. Oh well, I am sure that in time we shall overcome. Hope you do. Love you.

  3. i can’t remember the last time i turned on the oven. this weather is just so hot for me. my mojo for cooking and baking is gone too. i hope fall will be here soon to lift my cooking spirits. i think it will for you as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I just got finished talking to my new hair stylist in Nebraska…. and it made me remember all of those times I would come to your house with a box of hair color for you to do my hair because I was depressed. If I were there, I would give you a hug – and color your hair if you wanted…. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Love ya.

  5. I understand depression is dark and deep I also know it’s real. God doesn’t want that for you. The Psalms are very good to read when you are in a depression as well as some of the scriputes in Isaiah. What ever you are going through to give you this depression, I just feel that these scriptures will help.

    Isaiah 41:10 (NIV) So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

    There is a song taken from this Scripture and it says:

    Fear not I am with Thee;
    Be not dismayed;
    For I am thy God;
    I will still give thee aide;
    I’ll strengthen thee,
    help thee, and cause thee to stand;
    Upheld by my righteous omnipotent hand

    Isaiah 61 1-3

    1) The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,

    2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,

    3 and provide for those who grieve in Zionโ€” to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.

    Isaiah 43:2 (NLT)

    2 When you go through deep waters,
    I will be with you.
    When you go through rivers of difficulty,
    you will not drown.
    When you walk through the fire of oppression,
    you will not be burned up;
    the flames will not consume you.

    Psalms 34:18 18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

    This one is one of my favorites. I remember hearing Joy Ware say each morning before she signed off of her radio program (WEEC) Remember to stay in His presence because in His presence is fullness of joy. I was always pulling in the parking lot at work and this scripture always helped me through the day!

    Psalm 16:11 (NIV) You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand

    1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)
    Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

    Proverbs 3:5 & 6
    5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;

    6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

    Well, just wanted to give you some scripture balm for your state of depression. Remember to stay in His presence for in His presence is FULLNESS of JOY!:)

    I Love you,
    Mama
