Answer me speedily, O Lord; My spirit fails! Do not hide Your face from me, Lest I be like those who go down into the pit. Cause me to hear Your loving kindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You. Psalm 143:7-8
In the scripture above David is calling on the Lord. He is crying out to God to speak to Him. He wants to hear God speak to Him. He is obviously feeling very low in his spirit. We too are to cry out to God when we are feeling down and depress and by way of His Holy Spirit God will also speak words of comfort to our minds. If we stay close to Him always, He will also show us which paths to take and how to relieve ourselves from depression and anxiousness.
Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad. Proverbs 12:25
Sometimes when others do us wrong it’s hard to see the good in them, but this is where we can do damage to ourselves by holding on to anger. We need to try and see only the good in others, this is what God requires us to do, and it’s also much better for our well being.
Try speaking kind and uplifting words only and watch the anxiety and depression melt away.
