WORD FOR TODAY: OVERCOMING DEPRESSION
“I will have much joy in the Lord. My soul will have joy in my God, for He has clothed me with the clothes of His saving power. He has put around me a coat of what is right and good, as a man at his own wedding wears something special on his head, and as a bride makes herself beautiful with stones of great worth.” Isaiah 61:10 NLV
Depression may have brought about irritability, bitterness and even isolation from others in your life. You may be experiencing a sense of worthlessness. But you are far from being worthless. God created you to be a unique and special individual. He has a plan for your life and promises you a future and a hope. He has given you gifts and talents that you can use to touch people’s lives.
It is important that you see yourself not as a failure, but as a person God loves. He loves you unconditionally. He cares about everything that affects your life. You are important to him!
A good reminder of all this is found in the Bible in Isaiah 53:4-6. Read through these verses, substituting your name for we and us. Remember – You are the person God loves. You are special and unique. You are clothed in his righteousness. And he will always love you unconditionally.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!!
