Today is officially “Blue Monday.” There are various reasons for this, from the lack of daylight hours to the timing of Christmas bills. Today has been dubbed the most depressing day of the year.
Isn’t it good to know that we have so many reasons not to be depressed?!
So how do we get out of a funk if we’re feeling one?
Psalms 68:3 But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. NIV
Make the choice to rejoice. Thank the Lord for all the things He has done. Rejoice in Him today. He has been good. Think of all the things we have to be thankful for, they are many.
Prov 15:30 A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones. NIV
Spread some cheer, SMILE at someone. Give a compliment, do something to lift someone elses heart. Call a friend, drop an email just to say hello. I promise that it will lift your spirits also.
Got worry?? Phil 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. NIV
Remember that as children of God, the fruit of the Spirit abides in us. Gal 5:22-23 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. NIV
Can we stay depressed when He has given us so much? If it was only that He loved us, I believe that would be enough.
Hope you have a wonderful Monday!!!! Hugs, Sue
