EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
“Get out of Depression”
I’d love to hear all of us be able to claim “I’m too blessed to be depressed”. Can we strive for an attitude to remain positive and show the world we are walking in the “joy” of the Lord?
We need to keep our thankful heart beating and allow gratitude to change our circumstances. We can pretty much agree most of us have difficulties to bear. I just walked through one recently with both parents battling covid and needing to care for them for many weeks- it spanned o er our entire holiday of Christmas and New Years and we worked endlessly around the clock to keep them alive. Difficult, yes! Depressing, yes! Did God have me in that place? Yes!
The struggles are real, and we don’t want anyone to cover up a painful existence or a call to carry a load we did not ask for, but changing an attitude
of the heart so you can face your storm and direct your focus on Jesus and His Word- IS KEY.  Doing so with a grateful heart can help any situation of worry, depression, fear, and anxiety get better.
Any of you can have a ministry right where you are this very moment if you take the focus off yourselves and offer to share your heart and share the love through you…your stories you have from your past and just sharing a piece of you with someone in need.
Not sharing all your own problems, no one wants to hear that! But share the true blessings of God inside your love of sharing your stories to encourage. It causes you to look for God in every situation you’ve encountered, including what you may be facing or going through right now!
We each have been given this very single day that we are able to breathe air and live. It’s given by God and we must be thankful to be alive! It’s an encouragement and story in itself. You have a story!
It’s through our imperfect lives, difficulties and our most broken chapters, that God’s faithfulness is displayed in our existence.  Find it, dig for it and share it!
 Others need to hear it and you will be walking in blessings before you even realize!
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Freedom.” (2 Cor. 3:17)
Break free, find joy in every situation! The Spirit dwells in you, doesn’t He?
Please re-read this scripture.
