Do you get depressed and not know why? Has the JOY and peace of mind left? As with King David, it is not permanent! The JOY may be interrupted for awhile, but we don't have to let it continue. May I offer something to think about? Could it be you're not as close to GOD as you once were; and your attention to "emergencies" and things that "just have to be done" kept GOD from being first in your life? Psalm 51:12, "Restore unto me the joy of THY salvation; and uphold me with THY free spirit." Sometimes when this happens try doing something GODLY for someone else. Washing the dishes, cleaning the house, sending a "Thinking of you" text, phone call or email, or even praying for someone else. When you start doing GODLY things you can't help but have GODLY thoughts and GODLY thoughts set you free. Giving thanks to GOD is always a great place to start even if you don't feel like it. You see, our separation is only temporary, for Salvation is permanent and GOD'S presence will always overwhelm you. The beautiful thing is; you will have JOY and peace, because of HIS renewed presence in your life. Your JOY will be renewed but this time YOU WILL KNOW WHY. AMEN, Peace and Love to you all.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
