So, if you follow me on social media (briannanicollle on everything... :)) you would know that I took a slight break from it last week, and it was needed. I think I learned a lot about my sadness and I want to share those things with you.
So, first, yes sometimes I deal with depression. It comes and it goes, it's a fight every time. And it is okay that I deal with it. It doesn't make me weak and it doesn't make me stop from doing what I am here on this earth to do. God still loves me, and nothing can ever change that.
Second, I want to tell all of you who deal with depression, God cares about your sadness. He doesn't want you to not feel it. He doesn't like to see us sad, but He knows we live in a falling world with deaths that feel so hard. Sometimes it's hard to even breathe, and He does not want us to not feel that.
But, the good thing about this pain that we hold onto, we can hold onto God in it. We don't have to go through this alone. We have a God who cathes every tear we cry. We have a God who loves us unconditionally. We have a God who will use this pain for something beautiful. We have a God tht can and will change everything.
I also want to mention how worship plays such an important part in our depression. Worship is not just singing. It's laying everything before God. It's bowing down to Him. It's standing in awe of Him. It is rejoicing with just how good He is. It's singing even though we feel like we can't.
Job lost everything, but still praised. And God knew tht would happen. Sometimes, we need to get rid of everything to remind ourselves that there is one thing that will never leave, God. God is not leaving you. He won't
Cling to Him in your sadness. Don't forget to worship, because He is still good. He is still God. He is still holding you in His hands.
Sisters, brothers, when you get depressed, remember the very reson why you are. You walk by faith. And the enemy is afraid of you, he is trying to tear you down. Don't let him. Stand firm in your faith.
