Sunday Thoughts

I'm sure you've noticed I've been really quiet on the blog. I was fighting some depression last week. I don't get depressed a lot (thankfully) but when I do, it's always a doozey! I think satan takes this time to really remind me of all my faults, my sins, my past, how no one likes me, how I'm really weird...well you get the point. Every possibly horrible thing I could think comes to my mind and just torments me. Am I the only one that does this?

I really have to cry out to God during these times. I feel like David in the Psalms where I'm asking God where He is - why has He abandoned me? Of course, He never does, but when we're down in that pit with satan whispering in our ears, it's hard not to believe that.

Thankfully, I'm feeling much better. I've been praying and asking God to just help me to feel His presence at all times. Sometimes, that's all I need. Just knowing He's there with me. I also have so many friends who are going through hard times and there's something about praying for them that lifts my spirit. I know God hears my prayers and that's enough.

I had a birthday about a week and a half ago and I'll be sharing all about that on Tuesday's Counting Our Blessings link up. I hope you'll join me then!

God bless your day - Julie

  1. I am sorry Julie. Yes, depression comes for me too. The pain and things become so very overwhelming sometimes.
    I hope and pray this Sunday is beautiful and restful for you.
